Birth control UPDATED

Which birth control method do you use? Have you had any side effects etc. I'm have an appointment at the doctors and don't know which birth control i want yet. I definitly don't want the pills.

UPDATED: I just came from the doctors and i ended up getting the Nuvaring. Can someone explain to me how it works and when to put it in etc. I've asked my doctor and i beilive on the 3rd day of my period i put it in, and 3 weeks later i take it out to get a new one. Do i put that one in right away or wait until my period is over??

Unfortunately, I never responded well to any birth control options, but I had an evil uterus. I had a hysterectomy.

Sorry I can't be more helpful. Hopefully someone else can be.

I had mirena before me and my hubby tried to get pregnant. I know there is alot of "conversation" about it but I had no problems with it. No side effects.

I did the Nuva ring but I had no idea of the affects it had on me breast feeding. But now that I'm not, I love it. Its helped with my periods and cramps. Also has made them way shorter

I've tried pills, patch, depo.. hated them all. With the depo I spotted all the time. We have been successful with tracking and pull out method.

Condoms. I was on the pill last year but DH lost his job and benefits so I could not pay for it anymore. He is working again so hopefully he will get his benefits back soon.
