I used the pill for a long time. Then after my daughter was born, I dont know if I was more in tune with my body or what. But the BC just wasnt working for me. I could feel myself changing, like I was moody and bloated all the time. So eventually I got off of it and we just use condoms. Not my fave but it works.

I'm with Melissa, I couldnt do the birth control after giving birth. It just made me feel different. I couldnt explain it. So I stopped taking int.

I was using the Mirena IUD. I know it's controversial, but it worked for me.

I'll be using the pill. It never gave me problems, but I know that's unusual.

The pull out method has worked so far! And sometimes condoms. I am not a fan of the pills or IUD's. I know pulling out is viewed as not being so reliable but it has worked for us so far.

Hadiza, I’m with you on that! My husband and I use the same method! I’m honestly not a fan of birth control pills. When I was younger I was on them and I tried many kinds but each one I had bad side effects, so to me it wasn’t worth it. Too much suffering. With the pull out method we say, if it happens, it happens lol

After giving birth I use the pill for awhile to get my period back on track and from there we just use condoms.

I just went off a generic birth control that my dr recommended. No real side effects other than moodiness! Thinking about trying to conceive again.

I want to know some other types that have worked for people. The pill is no good for me I always forget! I had Mirena IUD and it was fine. The first 5 years were ok then I had it replaced and had a lot of cramping. Now I am back to the pill which is basically pointless.

I've heard the implant is NOT good if you suffer from anxiety or depression (anxiety for me) so I am scared to do that. They won't let me go back to an IUD for a while until they believe everything has healed like 2 years!!

I've been on the pill (Junel) and it worked for us. Right now we're TTC so I'm off it but I honestly miss my skin cooperating a bit more. Discuss it with your doctor and they can give you a run down of all your options. I've always been curious about the shot, but I'm not a needle person so that's out the window.

I used lo-estran birth control pill. It worked for me because of the low levels. It helped regulate my period as well. No real mood swings either.

Condoms. I know, I hate them so much but my body doesn't do well with any other birth control. I have my reservations with them. Ive seen them do more damage in the long run to your body and fertility than good

The pill. I stick to a routine with taking it (right after a brush my teeth at night) and don't have any issues. I had unpredictable periods and bad cramps before so it's been a welcome relief. I haven't had any side effects that I can think of. I'll be going off of it soon to start the TTC process. Hoping my period doesn't come back with a vengeance!

I used the pill for probably 7 years. It became where they made me feel sick (like morning sickness) and so cranky. Aftery daughter I've used the ring and I'm happy with it. So far no issues or unplanned pregnancies!

The generic brand my dr prescribed me had always been the best. I think a doctors recommendation is the best to follow. So far that is where I have the best of luck. I used a pill brand called aveeno I think. It was free under insurance and I didn't have any problems.

 I use that also...what is the controversy if you don't mind me asking?

I was using the Mirena IUD. I know it's controversial, but it worked for me.

Jackie posted this 21 September 2018

I use an IUD right now, no issue with pregnancy, but I'm considering getting off all BC and using condoms for now. I've been talking with a lot of couples....husbands too! They are convinced BC is throwing their body (women obviously) out of whack! I think there could be truth to that ...I just don't know what to think about this sometimes!

I have always used the pill and have not had any problems yet. Hopefully it will continue to work for me! Of course, as with most things, it all depends on your body and what works best for you. 

Hannah posted this 09 October 2018

I just use pills. They have always seemed to work well and never give me any bad side effects, etc.

At the beginning i used pills before my first daughter and forgot to take one and got pregnant and then i also tried the shot thats every three months but i had an inconsistent period that would last me up to 15 days. It also made me gain weight and gave me lots of mood swings so i switch to the Paragar IUD and had it for almost 5 years before i decided to remove it to get pregnant again. It worked wonders. 😀
