  • if you have already had children you can try the iud mirena that is implanted into your uterus. it is not painful and you cannot feel the implant. google it.

  • There are quiet a few.

    There are 2 different IUD's - one is the Minera that is a hormone IUD and lasts 5 years, and the other is just plain copper that lasts for 10 years.

    There is the patch (which I hated) that you replace one a week. You can put it on your abdomen, arm, thigh...just about anywhere.

    There is the NuvaRing (which I am on and love) which is a ring that you insert into your vagina, leave it there for 3 weeks, take it out to have your period and then put a new one in.

    I am sure there are more, but really you should talk about this with your doctor to decide what is best for your life style.

  • I used the patch and liked it. You put it on once a week and when its the week your supposed to have you period you just take it off and I always started 2 days exaclty after I took it off.

  • The patch, the nuvaring, an IUD. I used the nuvaring before I had kids and am now on an IUD and I loved both.
