  • I am using the Mirena IUD, I like it so far, its only been two weeks though. I took the shot and gained weight, I used the patch and that was a joke, I used pills and got pregnant, we hate condoms and they were ruining our sex life (that rubbery feeling is a massive turn off). So far I would recommend this, it is very pricey though if your insurance won't cover it.

  • I have the mirena iud, as of 2 days ago. It is cool so far, no bleeding, except the night I got it. A little twingy cramping every now and then, not too bad.....BUT getting it in, was HELL. I have had two babies, natural, with one dose of stadol damn near too late to help and I have to say, having it inserted SUCKED! I had depo and I couldn't LOSE weight, didn't gain any, just couldn't lose it. Plus I'd been on it off and on for years and years, and it was time to get off it.

  • I have liked Yaz, but I forget to take the pill too often, the nuva ring kept popping out when we had sex, and I have had the shot. If you ask me the shot is the best, you don't have to worry about it and you can go in a week before your next shot is due so you're good for another 3 months. I know alot of people are concerned about gaining weight with the shot, but I haven't.
