What kind of birth control worked/works best for you?

I had an IUD in for a while and it worked great, but I had it taken out so we could have another baby. Some things came up, and my husband and I decided I should go back on birth control. I don't want an IUD again. Suggestions? What has worked the best for you ladies?

  • well here's the deal, the depo has kept me from getting preggo but this last shot i had all the side effects i think you can get from it. i thought i was prego it was so crazy. (4 yes i said 4 hpts all said - )

    so its good as far as no baby but the side effects suck. and they didnt start till my 3rd shot. i really cant wait until next month, cuz after that it should start wearing off.....

  • The nuvaring is not as effective as it claims to be, I know 4 people including myself who have gotten pregnant on it. The pill works but not if you forget to take it LOL--After my daughter is born I am going to try Implanon-the one that goes in your arm...everyone I know that has it swears by it and it's less invasive than an IUD.
    Hope this helps!

  • I've heard good things about Implanon as well. Maybe I'll go that route.
