If they aren't really helping you like they should be, then I honestly would stop taking them. I'm the same way, I hate hormones. I have had paragard for almost 2 years and haven't had any issues with it, so if I were you I would definitely make an appointment to see the doctor after Christmas to get everything figured out.
