better birth control options?

Any advice on birth control? I quit the pill less than a year ago because it messed my hormones up so bad I wasn't myself and I hated that. But I hate condoms! Are there any better options out there?

  • I had the same issue, I took pill after pill, I tried the shot and the patch and they all screwed with my emotions, my sex life, everything. Recently I got the Mirena IUD and I love it so far. I haven't had any mood swings, no weight gain (cross my fingers), and my DH and I do not have to use condoms. We have the freedom to be sponateous (spelling?) now. And best of all, you have nothing to remember.......

  • Vasectomy ;)

    Mirenia has hormones in it though, keep that in mind.

  • I LOVE contraceptive film! They worked for us for 3 years until we were ready to TTC. They are great bcause you can have nice evening w/o the interruptions of condoms or gels.
