There are many many options available for birth control and the only way for you to choose is to learn about each method and speak with your doctor. Not all methods are appropriate for everyone depending on your age, medical history and risk factors like smoking.

@Christine: I have Reynaud’s too, isn’t it a pain? Mine must not be as severe, I can still go on the Pill, but before I was diagnosed R and I were flipping over my hands turning so blue.

We use condoms and FPM.
Hormonal birth control turns me into a crazy person…really.

the pill and pull out – I honestly dont understand people that wouldnt pull out if youre trying not to get pregnant!

Nuvaring and the pull out method. I love Nuvaring. The dose of hormones is much lower (bye bye mood swings!) and more consistent than I ever could be taking the pill. I love the Nuvaring. <3

Can I just remind everyone that pull-out is not a “method”. You can totally still get pregnant!

These are all methods; they just vary in how effective they are depending on both method error (inherent error of the product or method) and user error (people making mistakes).

Condoms currently, Going to be getting some kind of implantable BC soon, either Mirena or Implanon. Haven’t decided yet.

Nuvaring…I just started it about two months ago and so far so good. Kinda freaked me out at first but it turned out to be not so bad! It’s awesome never having to remember to take that little pill!

I LOVE the Nuvaring. I just set my outlook calendar and it reminds me when it’s time to switch. So much easier than the pill, and lower dose as well. I’ve found I can skip 1-2 periods in a row, which is fantastic. We use pulling out as well, but that’s more for… er… comfort reasons rather than birth control.

Birth control pills, and then back-up condoms if I’m on steroids or antibiotics, which is fairly frequently. Silly body. :p

I have an IUD. I swear its the best thing ever. I don’t have to think twice about taking pills or using condoms. I know they don’t recommend an IUD if you haven’t had kids yet, but I haven’t and its has worked great. I’ve almost had it for two years now with no problems.
