  • Honestly I've always had good luck on the pill - I've never experienced any side effects from it and haven't gotten pregnant yet while using it

  • I have Mirena (the hormonal IUD), and the only real side effect I've had is very irregular bleeding, but I've had irregular periods my whole life.

  • DH and I are both "fixed", I have Mirena also, and we usually use condoms! Can you tell we really don't want more kids? I have the Mirena because I like not having periods. I haven't had one in 3 years. We use condoms because we don't like messes. We are both fixed because insurance covered it at the time and you never know if our marriage will last forever.

  • I have the Mirena IUD...its awesome! I never had any side effects from it, i have not had a period in almost 3 years. I got it at my 6 week check up after my son was born. I am thinking about the essure thing tho because I do not want anymore children even though DH does....
