Birth Control

Kayleigh - posted on 04/07/2010 ( 6 moms have responded )




I am just wondering what everyone's opion on what type of birth control they use. I can not for the life of me remember to take the pill everyday. I am wondering what other types of birth control are out there. We do plan to have more kids in the future ( 1 year or so) so anything permenant for longer then that isnt much of an option.

I was on the depo shot for two years after my first son. It took me 5 years to get pregnant again!! The side affects can be very bad with it!! I would not recommend it to anyone!!

I'm like you, I can't remember the pill at all! I got mirena put in.. I know you said you only want to go another year before trying, but you can have your mirena taken out whenever you're ready to start trying again. I know a girl that got pregnant immediately after having hers removed. I've had mine since september of 09 and since then my period has stopped coming monthly, which with a 10 month old is a beautiful thing! I've HEARD you gain a lot of weight on the depo shot, but I've never been on it so I don't know from experience. Maybe nuva ring may be an option for you? 3 weeks in, one out for your period.. it even comes with a little timer that goes off everytime you need to remove it or put a new one in! Good luck, hope you find something that works for you!

I am on the Depo shot which is a shot you get every 3 months. so no pill to take. just an appointment to the dr. I am horrible at remembering to take a pill so this shot works great...
