  • Well I have tried them all from the pill to the patch to the shot. I haven't experienced none of the side effects that comes with them. If you can remember to take a pill everyday than I suggest Loestrin 24fe. it is a 24 day hormone and a 4 day placebo which is just iron. With this pill it makes you have shorter and lighter AFs. My AF lasted only one day and it was very light to where I could just wear a panty liner.

  • I'm using the paraguard. It's an IUD with no hormones so it doesn't make me insane. Well.. MORE insane... Plus, I don't have to remember to take it & it's good for a whole decade.

  • The pill (specifically ONLY Yasmin) has been the best for me. All other pills that I've tried (I've tried about 10) were horrible for me. I had the Mirena for 8 miserable months before I could get that plastic POS out of me. It was the worst. I have journals about how horrible it was, including my huge list of side effects. The Depo shot was probably the 2nd worst. I can't even use 99% of condoms out there because of latex and/or the lube that's on them (allergies).

  • I have an Implinon and I love it. No peroids although I have heard some woman have them with it.
