  • I got pregnant while on the pill and had side effects with most of them. Never had the Nuva Ring. I loved my Mirena, no periods, no PMS, no cramping, no nothing. I didn't have to worry about anything and I loved it. I know some people don't like it, but I had no issues with it. It is my choice.

  • Never did the IUD. didn't want something that required a doctor to remove.
    Nuva ring-killed my sex drive but was easy to use and didn't take a lot of maintenance
    The pill-got my DD from those

    Right now I use Natural Familly Planning by charting. 3 years with no hormones, no complications, and no pregnancy and it takes as much time as getting a pill and a glass of water and taking it.

  • I use Nuvaring and love it. I haven't found that it kills my sex drive at all, but everyone is different. I like I can easily skip periods if I want.

  • I also did not like the depo shot. it was awful! I am on pills. Sometime my husband will get a vasectomy. Hopefully it will be this year.

  • Of all you listed, I have only used the Ring and I loved it. The one side effect I didn't like was that it was horrible on my complexion, but I loved not having to worry about the pills every day!
