What Form of Birth Control Do You Use?

There are so many forms of birth control out there that it can make your head spin. Everyone has different needs, so the same choice may not work for all women.

You may be on the Pill to help alleviate painful periods or cysts. Or you may be using the NuvaRing because you can't remember to take the Pill. Hormones may not be right for you because you're worried about STIs or because you hate the annoying side effects, so you may be relying on condoms. If you don't want to have to think about your birth control, maybe you're loving the Shot or the Implant.

So tell me, what kind of birth control are you on?

Don't anyone think you're weird if you are enjoying the no worry time of abstinence!!!!I was celibate for 2 years following my divorce and once I became active again it was like a fresh start!!! Luckily now we are past the years of having more children so my husband had a vasectomy! Talk about liberating!!!He spent a weekend on the couch watching football games with an ice pack, 20 years ago! It was the best $400 we ever spent!

The pill. I've been thinking of other ways but I've been so busy and getting so distracted from the subject.

I use condoms because of their price and accessibility, but I'm thinking of getting on the pill too.

HELP! i've been through hell and i'm quite back yet. I was on the pill from 16 - 27 (i'm 32 now). I had to stop because it drove me insane. i tried many different types but they more or less made me cranky, constantly hungry and fridgid. not a good combination, especially not in a relationship. then there was the ring but i got so sentimental (and fridgid) i would cry over everything (and i'm not the sentimental type). now i have the non-hormonal IUD and i feel better mentally but my body doesn't quite like it and my period is horrible. takes me out for a week. plus i don't feel orgasms really well anymore. i know my body and this isn't right. counting days is what i should be doing, but i don't wanna take that chance. children are not an option for the next 3-5 years. does anybody have advice for me? this is killing me, seriously. and my boyfriend isn't digging it either...

I've been taking the pill since last January, both for safety and medical reasons (I used to lose too much blood in my periods and got anemia), and I love it. BTW, I didnt gain weight! In fact, I lost a few pounds...

Non-hormonal IUD. The pill (Ortho Lo) completely wrecked my system and gave me a medical condition (atrophic vaginosis--not fun!!). I went to a specialist and he warned me that the pill has a lot of consequences that aren't entirely understood. If you are having problems on the pill, be careful! Some women are particularly sensitive to the hormonal changes that the pill causes.
