  • I hate hormonal b/c. If you and your husband/so aren't planning on having more I suggest a vasectomy! Yay! My husband had that and it's awesome!

  • I have the Paraguard IUD and it works for me. It has no hormones like the Mirena does which I had that before and I had crazy mood swings and become depressed on it. But I haven't had any issues with the Paraguard other than having a few heavy periods which they have faded and become lighter.

  • 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
