I'm 27 and never been on any type of birth control because I've been scared of all the risks.. ie., death , blood clots, ache and weight gain. Pull out method and condoms have been great so far. Together me and my beau have 4 kids. I have only one so I don't mind if we get pregnant but he's pretty adamant that he doesnt want any anytime soon.
So to ease his mind I'm considering birth control. He's gone from lots of sex to limited sex because he's just that scared. He wants to get a vesectomy but I'm against it because we do want kids sometime in the future.
If I get my period next month.. I'm going to start it then.
Anyway... I'm so scared! Don't know which ones are safer.
Please share you're experiences with birth controls.

I was on the pill for well over 20 years and never had the slightest problem with it. Just remember that millions of women the world over take the pill with few or no side effects. A vasectomy is a bit extreme - although it can be reversed the reversal doesn't always work ...
Here's a link to an interactive tool that can help you choose the contraceptive method that is best for you:
Hope this helps!
