What b/c have you been on since you started using it?? Which has been your fave and least fave??

I've used the pill, the mini pill, the patch and now an IUD.

I love the IUD because I don't have to do anything!! Second for me is the patch because it was easy to use. My least fave has been the mini pill because I had a hard time remembering to take it at a certain time every day.

I was on Loestrin prior to child #1. Worked well until I missed some pills and got pregnant.

I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen after child #1. Worked just fine.

After child #2 I got the Mirena IUD. Was great, except for the 3 months of bleeding after insertion. After that though, the no periods was the best! But it also caused me infertility after removal, and it took me 9 months and Clomid to get pregnant with child #3.

After child #3 I got the Nuva Ring. I hated it. It gave me headaches, mood swings, and depression. I removed it 10 days after I got it, and felt better immediately.

Now we're using the pull out method, lol!

The Best: Mirena IUD
The Worst: Nuva Ring

I used Ortho Tri Cyclin for 3 years. I didn't have any major problems with it until I took antibiotics and got pregnant.

I'm using the Patch right now, and I don't really like it. I haven't had any side effects, but it attracts so much lint and dirt. By the end of the first day of my new patch it looks so gross - like a dirty bandaid.

I'm planning on switching to the IUD in the next month or so.

I did the shot, I didn't like it because I gained alot of weight, and I stopped getting my period, which freaked me out. I did the ring, I liked it , but it started giving me yeast infections. I used the patch, and got preggo.

I was on the pill and after my twins I took the depo shot...BAD NEWS.

I had constant migraines for 12 weeks straight. They forget to mention that you shed the inside lining of your uterus as well. It looks horrible and scary.

The pill made me break out all over my body. I HATE any sort of b/c. We have been using condoms for the last 5yrs. After this prg I am getting the coils inserted for permenant b/c..sterilization. And cryobalation to get rid of my periods.

I was on the Ortho Tri Cyclen pill first when I was 15/16, but I stopped taking it because I was getting heavy periods every two weeks that lasted for two weeks, so I got off of that for awhile. After that I just used condoms. Obviously that didn't work, since Joshua has now graced my life. Now I'm on the Apni pill, and my body's still getting used to it. I like it; I have shorter periods, but they still come every two weeks.

I have used the shot, the patch and the nuva ring.

I had chest pains and bled constantly with the shot. The patch caused me to gain weight and have horrible mood swings. I liked the Nuva ring, but DH could feel it during sex and I also got pregnant on it. I've had constant problems with any type of BC and can't wait for DH to get snipped.

I have used Depo and Ortho Tri cyclin. Hated depo, gained 25 lbs and ended up pregnant and miscarried. Now im on the pill and have no problems with it. I used to have very irregular periods and now they arrive on time every month and I love it.
