What birth control do you take?

I do not want a IUD.

I have been on Yaz for 2 months and HATE it! I have awful headaches and I am so moody!
I am not usually a moody person.

What are you on or was on in the past that you would recommend?

  • I'm probably no help - I had a tubal after my daughter was born and would have opted for an IUD otherwise. I did very well on Yasmin for years before getting pregnant. You could ask to switch to a different kind of pill, or the minipill.

  • I am on Nortrel birth control pills. I tried Yaz and I couldn't believe how awful I felt on it.. Nortrel I haven't had any side effects.

  • I have an IUD. this is the first time I've used one and I don't really care for it but it's better than having to take pills or remembering to change patches or rings or whatever. I have spotting like every other day or so so it's kinda irritating but my daughter is also only 12 weeks old so my body might not be regular yet.
