  • I've used the patch, the pill, suppositories and condoms and currently, an IUD. I prefer the IUD because it's non-hormonal and I don't have to think about it.

    Honestly, I would really love to try a vasectomy. That would be the best for me I think.

    The pill was too hard for me to remember to take (I'm horrible about that stuff - even with the 'take it at the same time every day' thing).  The patch irritated my skin quite a bit.

    Suppositories were messy and started to burn (yikes).

    Condoms just suck.

    The IUD is good because I don't have to remember it however I get the occasional 'extra period' because of it.  That's loads of fun.  plain

  • I'm currently on nothing but, I don't have anyone significant in my life. If I do ever get laid again, I'll have him use a condom. If I'm ever in a relationship again, I'll probably go back on the pill. LOL

  • Most pills worked fine for me, one didn't and I got my son.

    I loved Mirena! I know others bitch about it, but it was awesome for me. I want to get another one.

  • I was in the pill for several years, then Nuvaring which I loved. I got pregnant while on the minipill and breastfeeding, twice! So that didnt work for me. I had my tubes tied during a csection when I had my 5th (2nd csection).
