  • DON'T GET MIRENA!!!! (thats my advice lol) No i got cysts on my ovaries from that stupid thing and while it was great because i could have sex unprotected and have no worries, when one of my cysts ruptured and i ended up in the emergency SUCKED! to say the suggestions would be the pill, any of them are good. I was on seasonique until we decided to get pregnant again, and it was great.

  • I was on Tri- Nessa when I became pregnant and I never missed a pill. I took it everyday. But then again everybody's body if different so it might work for you.

  • I got pregnant with my youngest on the pill. I tried the IUD and my body rejected it, I bled for a month straight so had to have it removed. My doctor suggested I try the patches which is changing once a week and you get the week of your period off. I used it for about 5 years and never had any complications on it. I got off it last january to try to conceive and stopped in August because we couldn't get pregnant and it was too stressful, got back on it in September and in November I found out i was pregnant! I think eveyone's body is different. This will be our 4th child so I am done..but check out the patch, it's convinient and easy.

  • I was on a generic pill with no estrogen (so i could still nurse) and it worked. We couldnt afford it for a while and so we ended up pregnant again.. We do not know the meaning of self control.
