I am really looking at Implanon. I considered an IUD, but they say they are very painful to have placed if you have never had children. Ultimately, I want my tubes tied, but I don't think my insurance company will spring for 2 surgeries in 1 year.

I had high hopes for Nuvaring, but I was in that small percentage that has an allergic reaction to it. It gave me mild burning followed by severe raging sensation that went away right after removal. I am also allergic to copper, latex, and certain dyes and plastics.

On a bright note, thank goodness we live in a country where we have the freedom to use birth control and choose what to do or not do with our own bodies.

You rest you rust.

I was on the pill for the hormones and had problems with spotting, break through and CRAMPS!.
I just started Nuvaring. Not sure how it will work since it has only been 2 weeks.

I am a turtle!! Slow, Patient and Steady.

The new Mirena IUD works great for us. I had it installed 5 months before surgery. My one year surgiversary is coming up on 5/9/12.

You rest you rust.

I use Nuvaring. I've heard there can be issues with the pill and malabsorption...

"I'll try" is a preemptive excuse for failure.

Question for the ladies:

What do you use for birth control? I am currently on the pill, but thinking of switching to the implant.

What have been your experiences with various types?
