What is a good birth control?

I am 24 and about to have my 3rd son... in three years. and will have 3 under the age of 3. my bf also has 3 children of his own. We r ready to take a break from having children till the ones we have are in school at least. We want to have another eventually, but not for at least 5~10 years. I do not want to take a pill, cuz I am so bad at remembering pills and would get preggo for sure. and condoms n pull out dont work for us.. obviously. so what other kinds of "long term" birth control is there?

  • Nothing works better than NOT having sex to prevent pregnancy. Swallowing (BJ) is also 100% effective. LOLOL

  • I'm on Implanon and I love it. I'm covered for 3 years, I don't have a period, and so far no other side effects. I recommend it for sure.
