    I'm surprised there isn't a thread for this yet :eek:
    I'm thinking of switching things up, but I'm extremely particular about bc and haven't tried a lot of different ones.
    How do you guys prevent pregnancy? Sell me on your method of preventing these awful things -> :dummy1:

    I have a hormonal IUD because I gained weight and got acne and a depress from a few different pills that I tried. I like it and have had no negative side effects.

    That's what I have now and I ❤ it. But I'm not looking forward to getting it replaced so I'm shopping around.
    @skrinkle I was on Yasmin when I was like 17, it made me fat and it made me cry *thumbs down*

    yeah I'm definitely heavier now than I was when I started it but I kinda thought maybe it was age.. guess not :(
    I'd go off of it if I didn't get zits

    So far I have remained free of mini-mes by keeping my knees together.
    However I am thinking about going on birt control. It's not smart to wait for that moment when you think "I should have...".
    I'm thinking of eithe using a contraceptive pill or a nuvaring. I'll probably just ask our family doctor about the pros and cons and then decide.

    My friend swears by the nuvaring but she hasn't been able to convince me. Pill is what most girls I know start out with. And condoms, ALWAYS condoms

    I'm kind of worried about forgetting to take it, unless I put it on my pillow or something.

    When I took the pill I took it before bed every night to make sure I could take it at exactly the same time each day. I also set a phone alarm in the beginning. :imslow: I'm really bad at remembering stuff

    I also have a hormonal iud. Round 2. So... 7 years. A day of cramping was totally worth replacement

    I think I'm probably going to go for the same again. Nothing else has been appealing.
