Should I get Implanon, Depo injection or keep taking pills?

I keep forgetting to take my pills. I really don't want anymore kids, however I'm not 100 % sure. I've heard too much negative about IUDs. However there are people with negative thoughts about any type of birth control.

  • That's sounds like my situation exactly. At my 6 week postpartum appointment she mentioned the IUD, I shot it down, and I mentioned Implanon, however I had a terrible time finding a pill that didn't have so many side effects. The pill I take I still have side effects just not near as bad as the others. She said Implanon is to invasive to put in and remove if it doesn't work out. I'm just scared. I guess I should just try one, and if I totally hate it, I can always have it removed.
