  • My midwife was telling me about this little itty bitty capsule that they put into your arm.  It protects you for 3 years.

  • I loved my Mirena IUD. No period for 4.5 years, no side effects either. I know some people have had bad reactions but I adored it.

  • I use condoms along with a fertility awareness method because I think it's the healthiest.

  • I've tried a few unfortunately for me ALL of them failed. My youngest son was concieved while I was taking the pill (I took it everyday at the same time religiously) and using condoms. It's them stupid murphy swimmers I'm tellin ya! lol I finally had to get my tubes tied. I was 23 and had 3 kids I didn't want to shoot for 25 and 5.

  • What about a diaphragm? They work without hormones and have no side effects. They never caused a stroke, infertility or PID; you won't gain weight, get depressed, or lose your libido; your periods won't be affected. They have never been the subject of class action lawsuits and are instantly reversible.

  • Paragard IUD. It's hormone-free and lasts 10 years, has minimal to no side effects (though some experience a slightly heavier period..I, however, have not). I advise staying FAR away from the Mirena IUD, cause even though we all react differently to any type of birth control, the Mirena causes more issues than not. The people who haven't had issues with it ARE LUCKY, as it isn't common to not be affected negatively - and that's just what I have seen on this site! I had the Mirena for three years and suffered a great deal from the awful side effects. I'm not alone, either. But I suggest researching and comparing the two so you can decide what sounds better. PM me if you have any questions, I'm an IUD guru. Ok, not But I can help. =]
