Birth control suggestions?

I need suggestions, I don't like the pill because i never remember to take it making it worthless.

I would get an IUD but every time they put on in my uterus pushes it out (WTF i know)

I'm currently on the shot but i hate it (thankfully not for weight gain) I have no sex drive and I'm anxious/mad all the time.

What else could i get???? that's convenient and works well-

  • Before I got my tubes tied, my favorite was the patch, Ortho-Evra, but I hear that's bad now. If they've fixed it, I highly recommend that. Once a week is great. Have you considered Nuva-Ring? I haven't used it, but my friend did. You just have to be OK with putting your finger way up in your space there to take it out and put it in. I also hated the shot and pills.

  • 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.
