  • I highly recommend the IUD. Never a concern about forgetting to take the pill, in my case never a sideeffect , Low cost, Last for 10 Years and if you decide to have a baby, just have it taken out and you will not have to wait for drugs to get out of your system. That was my experience. After It was removed I got pregnant about 2 months later. No health issues, just peace of mind is what I can say about the IUD. Planned Parenthood has very good prices if you don't have an insurance otherwise your OB can take care of that easy procedure.

  • I like Nuvaring, simply because it's easy and I only have to deal with it once/month. Plus, my dr has okayed me taking one out after 3 weeks and inserting a new one, so I don't even have to go through my period - I love it!
    I don't experience any side effects, but I know any type of hormonal contraception bothers some women.

  • I agree with Cacharra .... I use the paragaurd IUD it has no hormones and has worked great and the best part is that I am not sure I am ready to stop having children but want to space them out without risking my health.
