  • cannot get an IUD unless you are 19 or above, in a monogamous relationship and are married with children.

    BTW..I wasn't being "rude" when I said abstinence. It IS the most effective form of BC with NO side-affects.

  • Good for you for putting her on the pill! Hurray for this mommy in touch with reality. :) I had some side effects related to moods, weight gain and spotting until I get regular and use to it. I hear the shot is nice...haven't tried it though.

  • The pill. A positive side effect is that can keep her skin clear. She should still use condoms to protect against disease and to be 100% effective. Being pregnant is quite a "side effect' and abstinence never worked and never will. Good for you!
