Is there a birth control that is healthier than others?

Ive been on Ortho Evra patches and they've been working fine. For me for sometime now but the effects of stroke, heart . I've had high cholesterol for a few years now. I did look up on healthy one that's called Lady-comp which says it's healthy and much safer plus clinicly proven to be good. Is there anyone that has tried this particular one or anyother?

  • Paragard works by stopping implantation of an egg fertilized or not. So, depending on when you think life starts you may not want that, it also can cause uterine perforation and can fall out w/o you noticing. ALL birth control has risks, you need to decide which ones you are willing to deal with.
