I’m scheduled to have a bisalp next week. What are the best options for period maintenance afterwards?

I have always had painful periods and have been on the pill since I was 11. Ideally, I’d like to come off the pill after my bisalp for a variety of reasons, but obviously would like to avoid painful periods. I’ve been considering a different method like the implant to maybe stop/lighten my periods, or foregoing BC all together for an endometrial ablation , but I wanted to get an idea of what others’ experiences have been.

I do know I have very little interest in an IUD – I have been told far too many horror stories! I already struggle with anxiety, depression, insomnia, and chronic migraines, and really don’t want to add IUD nonsense to that list!
