I have the implant and love it. It's for 3 years. I spotted a little bit when I first got it. But forget it's even there.

I was on the pill before I had my daughter and it worked for me but sometimes I would forget to take it. That's why I wanted something different. I know everything works differently on everyone.

Get the nexplanon! It's for 3 years. I'm on my second one. No periods (for me at least). Totally worth the pinch!

I had the mirena for 2 years and loved it!!! I only got it out because I was trying to conceive and after baby is born I will probably get it again

Nexplannon is what I have. It's bruised for a week & tender but it passes quick. The numbing shot hurts more than the actual procedure.

There are pros and cons with any BC but I've tried several including depo provera, nuvaring, and the pill (don't remember the brand) and Mirena and I loved the Mirena IUD. Slight soreness for a day, but it worked great. No side effects.

I dunno.. The IUD is the ONLY method of birth control that hasn't made me nuts, messed up my period or caused me to get ovarian cysts.

Following. I hate the pills, I want something else but don't know what. I've been procrastinating making an appointment :/

I've had the mirena for about 2 years and love it. I have a handful of periods in a year and no side effects.

Yeah it's 3 years and no it doesn't hurt but it's pretty scary it'll hurt like the next day. It'll bruise up but just more of an ach when you move your arm

I've used Depo for a year now so far things are good no gain weight, no periods and I go every 3 months so if I want to change my method after 3 months I can. The shot does burn some but it passes fast and the area stays sore for a few days.

Errin also know as the mini pill! Works great no side effects and just set and alarm in your phone. I set mine to go off at 4 everyday so I never forget :)!

I don't have suggestions but I have one on what not to take.. I'd stay away from nuva ring.. Me and a few other moms on here were hospitalized and almost died from it
