 We use NFP and condoms for those 3-4 days a month when I am fertile.

ive been on the depo ( wouldn't recommend it) i took it right before i left the hospital after my youngest was born and it gave me awful mood swings, and i was unable to lose any of the baby weight.. as soon as i got off of it i dropped 10lbs very quickly and i felt like my old self again... then i took just regular pills everyday but those made me bleed for over a month straight and i haven't yet tried the new one

Nuva Ring.  Sometimes gives me headaches and makes a little more "fragrant" down there...lol.

 I'm on mirena but my oldest has been on the patch but starting to get a rash.  We have an appt to possibly switch her and are looking at the various options.  She's 16 and the gyn doesn't recommend mirena until they are at least 17.  Just looking for ideas.

I'm on lo loestren fe. I've been on it for a little over a month now. I like it so far for having to take a pill everyday. It is suppose to be the lowest dose of hormones and I still haven't had a period. I was on Mirena and I had really bad side effects, but like you said you aren't looking to put her one that. When I was your daughters age, I was on the depo shot. I didn't have any side effects with it but ppl have mixed feeling about it.

I was on Depo before I had my two youngest and then Mirena. I hated Mirena. It gave me nothing but problems, even though my doctor tried to say it couldn't have. I had it removed and decided we were done having kids and got the Essure. So far, so good. 

Honestly, the best bc for me was Depo. I was on it for a long time (10 years) and never had a period. I did gain weight though but that's about it for side effects.
