What birth control should I go on?

What birth control are you on that you like?
I haven't been on one in awhile & I have a schedule pap next week.
I need to figure out what I want. I'm thinking of Mirena.. but when they tried to put it in after I had my daughter, it hurt so bad they couldn't do it.
Any ones without such crazy possible side effects?

  • I had Mirena for 5 yrs. It hurts when they put it in and for about a month after (cramping and all) but after that I hardly ever had a period- really just spotted a couple of days every 3 months or so. It was great and the only reason my boys and daughter are so many yrs apart! :)

    I was on that and got pregnant & it sucked as birth control.
    I am trying mirena after the baby is born.

  • i use mirena, love it, lighter periods if I have a period at all. Thats what I'd reccommend> But it has progesterone in it, so if you were sick during pregnancy this woud not be for you.

  • Mirena and Paraguard are abortive forms of birth control. Look it up or consult your OB/GYN on the subject before deciding on it. The pill is a much better option as it will not terminate pregnancy if you do happen to become pregnant. It all depends on your views of abortion though; if you're not against it or don't believe a child's life begins at conception then Mirena or Paraguard would be fine for you.

  • I used YAZ loved it. I didn't do so well on the DEPO it made me super depressed?!?!?! Everyone around me thought I was suicidal even though it never crossed my mind.
