  • 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.

  • I liked Nuvaring, but it's not for everyone. It was just easier for me not to have to remember to take a pill everyday or have to remember to insert something before sex, but yet it was something I could take out whenever I wanted (as opposed to the shots, or the norplant type of bc).

  • What rkoloms said. After having my first. I got one and love it. I did go back on the pill for a bit and it messed up my body so much. So I will never do anything else but the diaphragm.

  • We use fertility awareness method. It works for us. It doesn't work for everyone, especially if your cycles are irregular. It's free and has no side effects.

  • i wont use BC ever again it'll be condoms or a diaphram. the hormones in BC pills just really mess me up

  • I had 5 live births...quite a few miscarriages even into the later months which was hard. I was Extremely fertile to say the least. BC made me moody and unstable and was not strong enough. The only thing that i have found to work with either low homones or no hormones is an IUD. The 5 yr. is plastic and has a low amount of hormones. I use the 10 yr. which has no hormones and is made of copper and Ive had exellent results. This is the only way I know I wont get preganant. Its also completely reversable with removal.
