I go see my doctor in two weeks to discuss birth control options. I have tried the pill but with two little ones I found myself forgetting to take it. I tried the depo shot, but I had terrible spotting. I know at this point we don't want to have any more children for a while. I have researched both Paragard and Mirena, but I would like some recommendations. So which one do you recommend? I have a lot of trouble with spotting on birth control so far. Also, what are side effects to either?
