Whats the best birth control? Please help!

I had a baby 4 weeks ago and I do not want to get preggers again. I had an ovarian cyst that turned into a tumor and was removed 4 months ago. Because of that I do not want an IUD. But I want the most effective birth control out there *aside from abstanence*
Most BC pills make me moody and brake out horribly. Any suggestions?

  • I know they do shots, but i have clue of the names. You should ask your Gyno.

  • Implanon is really good, but one of the biggest side effects of it is irregular bleeding. Other than that I loved it. It's good for 3 years.

  • LOL have twins!! J/K. Really an IUD would be the best bet, but the pill is probably how you want to go. Talk to your OB about which is the most effective. Some will say Depo shot, but I've heard it isn't as effective as you're looking for.

  • I swear by depo. I got pregnant twice on pills and the IUD almost ruptured my uterus.
