Birth Control Method

Which one do you recommend? Side Effects, and all? Which one do you not recommend.. I want to be on for about 9 months to a year and want to get pregnant after that? Any suggestions on which one works best after you get off?

  • Depo and Yasmin are evil! IMO.... Haven't found the right one for me yet, but I'd steer clear of those two

  • I agree with the Depo... I was on it and am terrified to EVER get on it again!!

  • I must be weird because I loved Depo. I lost 15 pounds on the first cycle of treatment.

  • I used microgynon which cause sickness, yasmin which caused lack of sex drive, probably be different for you though, think those side effects are very rare.
