My DH won't be home until May, but I still wanna be prepared.
What is a good/safe b/c?? I tried the pill last month, and forgot to take it at least 3 times already... So I discontinued that... The IUD scares me because of all the horror stories I've heard... I heard the shot causes massive weight gain... I heard nuva ring had hormone issues... The implant sounds like it would hurt?
What did yall use? Did you have any major issues?
TIA =D

We just use condoms... sometimes. We are half-assedly TTC. :lol:



But, it's worked so far. The last time I was pregnant was in 2011.

Any hormonal birth control can cause weight gain.



Pill- Tried it and always forgot to take
Depo-No issues other than weight gain
Patch-Loved it but lost insurance and couldn't afford it
Nuvaring-Loved it!! Got it after DS was born before switching. Very easy and never bothered me. No side effects
Nexplanon(new Implanon)- Love it. Got it back in November. No pain getting it put in... They numb you first. Quick and easy. Only problem i have is the random pregnancy like symptoms that come up randomly lol. But otherwise I love it.

I'm on the pill and have had no issues. The thing I do to remember taking it is set an alarm on my phone everyday for 7pm. That way I never forget. It's worked pretty good so far.

it's a pretty big ring, you don't have to feel too far in to feel it.
