What do you suggest? I just recently got a unplaned pregnancy, that ended up being a molar pregnancy, and I have a 11 month old DD, and I do not want another any time soon!


I don't remember to take the pill, and I'm allergic to the patch.

I'm on Depo. You take one shot every three months. Depo is a love it or hate it bc. People that don't like really hate it. I've been on it for years and I love it, the only side effect I've ever had is not having a period.

I was on depo when I got pregnant this last time, and gained 20 pounds from it. So I'm hoping for a better option. I hate that I gained weight, and I'm afraid of having another unplanned pregnancy and losing it like the last.

Paragard.

You dont get the luxury of having no periods,but it is HORMONE FREE, so its a lot healthier for your body. IMO. I had a Pulmonary Embolism due to the pill, so Paragard is the only way I can go. I've had no problems with it, btw.

I was thinking about Mirena,...but after the horror storys I've seen on here I'm a little afraid. Lol. I was going to bring it up to my doctor when I see him next week, but I am nervous about that one.

Yeah, I was on depo when I got pregnant this last time, unfortunitly (excuse my spelling) it caused a molar pregnancy for me. Not that I wanted another child right now anyways, but its still sad.
