Come on then ladies what have you all found to be the best contraception? What are the pros and cons you’ve had with each? Wrote one of the mothers on my Facebook mums group.
I have 6 children so as you can guess I have not used much in the way of contraception.
Personally I have used the pill but I was useless at remembering to take it so I tried the Depo-Provera injection. I found the depo injection worked well for me, as I only had to go and have a top up every 12 weeks, it also stopped my period from arriving which was a great side effect for me, but the downside to it was my fertility would be greatly affected in the future. It also made my moods more erratic each month.
I had the implant placed into my arm three weeks ago, it was nothing how I imagined it would be and so far so good, no side effects to speak of.
With so much variety out there it can be difficult to know which form of contraception to choose. We all want something that will work, but it has to also work for us personally. I have heard horror stories from women who have bled nonstop or gained a great deal of weight from having the Depo-Provera injection, thankfully I was lucky and suffered from none of these.
