there is absolutely no "one size fits all" answer to this. It depends on your needs and your body chemestry...and your memory! Some pills you have to take everyday, but then if you commit yourself to the long term options like a shot, you really can't do much about the potential hormonal side effects for the duration they last. There are many pros and cons with every method. Talk to you ob. You'll probably need to try a few things out. Personally, I can't use bc because my body chemistry is just too sensitive or something. I always have physical or strong emotional reactions to them.
