    I would ask your doctor about the birth control patch or the ring. They all have similar risks to the pill.

    I hated the depo shot too, horrible side effects!

      I was on the mini pill for almost a year and it was good but I just never felt like myself and then it started messing me up and I would have almost month long times of bleeding so I got the Mirena iud and it was horrible! I just had it removed about a week ago. It has awful side effects. I didn't even have it for 2 months before having it removed. I gained at least 20 lbs in that 2 months as well even though I was working out everyday. It hasn't even been a week since they removed it and I have yet to start working out again but I've already lost 5 lbs...they definitely mess with you. Plus I got a horrible infection from it, I'm on three different antibiotics to get rid of it.

        I was terrified too and I should have gone with my instinct. It was pretty bad...but then there are some people who swear by them.

          i think im gonna go with "the combanation pill" the Ortho Tri-Cyclen Lo type, so far its sparked my attention, and i belive it is the type i used to be on, im simply amazed i didnt know there were sooo many diffrent types of birthcontrol pills. lol

          Oops! Lol I only had a few options because of my age and because I get headaches so I didn't have so many things to choose from.
