Are there any type 1s on birth control? Does it affect your blood sugars? Weight?

Hey! I am. It can definitely change your bg levels. It's important to talk to your obgyn and find one that will work best for you. The IUD was the best option for me. I researched it a lot first.

Yes I have been since I was 17... Never noticed it affecting sugars but did notice the weight gain
