BIRTH CONTROL

Hey ladies I need some birth control advice. I was on depo for a few years and just came off of it this past summer. I was n olonger doing anything, so..... I moved to Fla to take care of same family stuff. I have been talking to a guy back in VA for a month and 1/2 now and for reasons unrelated to him I am prob moving back, so Im thinking I should prob get some bc. I do not want depo again, or iud. But I DO NOT want to risk getting preggo. I am a single mom of a 6 yr old, thats enough for now. :) Advice, stories ect about diff kinds of bc and your experiences with it...
THANKS

  • What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.
