  • I'm not on b/c now, having been tied a few years ago. However, my favorite one was the Ortho Evra patch. It was only once a week, very easy!

  • for me I wouldn't use either because what happens is a sperm and an egg can meet but because those type fo birth controls cause your cervix to thicken it doesn't allow the eggs to implant. I choose to use birth control that prevent the egg and sperm from meeting in the frist place and do not cause the cervix to thicken just incase they do meet. The reason is because I believe life begins once the sperm and egg meet and I would not want to cause an abortion. but those are because of my personal convictions.

  • 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.
