I love it!!!

Let's just say that it seems over the last nine yrs I have used a lot of birth control. Needless to say the forms that I have been on haven't always prevented my kids. My frist was planned no question. Eleven mths later thanks to a latex allergy that I wasn't informed of my son came along. The depo shot brought my third one 2 1/2 yrs later. the pill brought me child number 4 another 2 1/2 yrs. So what did I finally get that really works? IUD!!! It is so great I never have to worry about putting something in or going and getting a new dose of something or an allergy. No matter if we decide to have any more I will always stick to the IUD it has made my busy life so less complicated. Would and do tell everyone that asks about my IUD.

Tubal ligation for a mother of three

I had a tubal ligation after my third child. I was about to turn 21 so I decided I had enough children. Boy and am I glad I did because now I am a grandmother of one and my daughter is about to have another in July! Grandchildren are the best cause you can give them back to mama when they get fussy. LOL!!

Essure is <3

Last summer, I had Essure + ablation. I am permanently sterile AND my periods are down to about a day and a half! I used to have horrific cramps and prolonged periods (sometimes as long as ten days) - I missed a minimum of one day of work a month. That's all gone now, and I've never been happier!

Birth Control Choice

I started using the pill when I was 15 due to cysts on my ovaries. The pills either make me sick or moody, then I tried the shot and it made me gain a ton of weight, then I tried the patch which allowed more cysts, so then I went to the ring which was great for about a year and then where it set inside got so painful I couldn't leave it in there, I had to discontinue it. SO at 29 I am doing nothing, however I am going to talk to me doctor about a diaphram or something similar in two weeks. I am just concerned about the in and out and can my husband knock it out of place? Guess I will find out.

I love my Ring!

I love my ring! I'm in love with the Nuva ring. I was getting extremely ill on the pill so I had to give it up. I tried the patch and had a bad reaction as well. My doctor tried me on the ring as soon as it was available here and I used it from there on out. I just put it in once a month and that's it. I have a tilted cervix and this was no problem at all. I would recommend it to everyone!

I luv my tubal

I had a tubal ligation @ 25 because I never wanted children. I could not be happier! There's nothing better than this feeling of total freedom. Permanent birth control, woo-hoo!
