hello ladies ive been looking into a birth control method that i both need and want.

however, i am not sure which one i want i have tired the pills before i always forgot to take them. after i had my daughter i got on the depo shot and a year later got off because i was gaining weight like crazy and always wanted to eat, so i got off that and now i am looking into trying a different method but i am unsure which one i want to try what is everyone else on just wondering thanks.


i have looked into the patch

the implant

and the iud

On the iud, I love I don't have to worry about it cuz I always forgot to take the pill, BUUUT spotting the first few months was non stop for me, also I did gain like a pound on it but its nbd ! My problem is every month if I skip a period I have to wonder if i'm pregnant or not ..the chances are small but its possible and the spotting but the fact I never have to worry about taking anything helps!

I have the paraguard IUD. Its non hormonal, is good for 10-12 years, and leaves no room for user error (like forgetting to take your pill.
