I had my tubes tied but afterwards I started getting really bad periods so the dr gave me birth control to cut out the periods. I take the Depo provera shot and I love it. You get the shot every three months so you dont have to worry about taking a pill everyday.

None at the moment.

I have used ortho tri, nuva ring and depo shot in the past.

I was probably happiest with the nuva ring.

Do you like it?  I'm considering it, but I was afraid of bad side affects, because I've had a lot of problems with bc.  :(

Essure

What was your experience getting this done?  Did you get pain meds?  How long did it take for you to recover?

Tubal ligation ;)

no not happy with it at all but I will not use the pills because it makes my literally pycho i mean throwing things bawling my eyes out 4 no reason mad screaming yelling ect all the time happend as soon as i had my son 2 1/2 years ago.  had no issues on the pill untill his birth. condoms don't work bc one im allergic to latex two neither of us can orgasam and so it just isn't pleasurable. iud's have way to many risks like ripping the uterus, falling out ect. im at a loss as to what to do
