  • I like the diaphragm. There are no hormones at all. With the patch I gained quite a bit too. I don't like the side effects of other pills. Never found one I liked.

  • Condoms! that way if they "fail" I can tell and go get planB!
    that's just me though.
    I'm also on YAZ for other reasons, not just as BC but I still use the condoms too because I do not trust the pills.

  • With my ex for a long time we used the sponge, I was breastfeeding and it worked out very well. For some time it had been taken off the market, so we switched to a contraceptive foam. You're suppose to use it with a condom or diaphram, but we used the foam alone, until I went back on the pill.

  • paragaurd (sp?) it's like mirena but hormone free. Which works best for me. In four years I didnt use a condom once and never got pregnant. I instantly got pregnant though after I had it removed

  • I got the IUD after my second child and it dropped down after we had sex with it in for the first time. I had to get it taken out the next morning. I am now on the depo shot and i really like it you don't have to think about just go in form 2 minutes every 3 months and thats it.
