What kind is the best? I've only heard horrible things about the shot, but SD is horrible about taking pills, so I'm really not sure which is the best for young girls these days. Any one know anything?

IUD is only recommended for those who have given birth.

Uh oh. I think the shot would be better, but I've really only heard awful things about the shot.

 I would ask her Gyno. He will have her medical history and be able to talk to her and see what's what.

You'd be hard pressed to find a doctor that would do a an IUD. I'd never ever do the depo shot. Do they make the patch anymore?
