Birth control

What type of birth control do you use and what are the side effects? I can never seem to remember to take the pill each day and Mirena cause cramps/headaches and decreased my sex drive so I had it removed last summer. I am going ti discuss this with my Dr next week at my appointment but just wanted some input. Thanks!!

  • I natural family plan by charting and abstaining from sex on fertile days.

    Taking Charge of your Fertility by Toni Weschler is a great book on the subject.

    I was having some horrible side effects from the 3 types that I had tried and decided to stop putting junk in my body. I'm going on 3 years with no pregnancy BUT we are very careful when I am fertile.

  • I'm taking the pill right now. It's called sronyx, not sure what it is a generic of. But it's a low dose pill and so far I'm on the 3rd week of my first pack so I don't have many side effects to report. I have been spotting since I got off my period but I can deal with that.

  • Don't get the Depo shot unless you need to gain a lot of weight!
