Well I did the mini-pill it didnt and I became pregnant with twins when my son was 4 months old, I lost those babies. Then tried the mirena and just had to have that removed because it slipped and I bled for 34 days straight. So now I am practicing abstinence

To go along with your worries about mirena, a friend of mine's gf was had mirena. Well, it broke (thinking it might have to do with his size), and they ended up prego. This was a danger to mother and child. By the time they found out they were preg, WI would not remove it- keeping both still at risk of their lives. So they had to go to Chicago to have it removed to better their chances of survival. Unfortunately they still ended up loosing the baby, but mother is still alive. After having one of my good friends go through that, I personally will never get an IUD- the story is too close to home.

I just started on seasonique...its a everyday pill but you only get your cycle 4 times a year. Im not sure how I like it yet, but i have a friend who is on it and loves it which is why I chose it.

I am on one of the pill forms of birth control. I like it... I like to be "regular" so that is why I oped to be on the pill, so I do get my cycle.
