  • The Nuva Ring. I suck at remembering to take a pill everyday, I didn't want a shot, I was afraid a patch would fall off, and I'm scared of getting a IUD shoved up my uterus. So...the Nuva Ring it is lol. I will admit that sometimes I even forget to put that back in on time even though I only have to do it once a month!

  • I have the Inplanon and I don't have to remember anything its there and stays there for three years. Plus, if your not good at remembering pills and nuva ring then you should try it.

  • I'm using the Minera IUD, it wasn't too bad being put in, just really uncomfortable, my OBGYN said it's way easier to insert them just a couple months after you've given birth, my period came back but it's super light, like I only need to use pantyliners. I'd reccommend it
