So I'm 22 years old, never been pregnant (so obviously no kids!) but would really like to be on some sort of birth control. My fiance and I always use condoms but I just want to be safe because accidents can happen!
I've been on and off BC since I was 16. Started with a few different pills and either they really messed me up cycle wise, could never tell when I was going to get it, and one time even had my period for 30 DAYS (terrible), or I would forget a pill at least once a week (I'm always here there and everywhere and SUCK at remembering to take pills, wish I didn't!).
Also tried the Depo-Provera shot and OMG. I got one shot and I've been SO messed up ever since. Zero sex drive, period is even more irregular than it was before. I get my period like every 3 months now, freaks me out! I haven't had it since the end of August, I'm getting ready to take a pregnancy test (even though last time fiance and I had sex it was like 6-8 weeks ago and with protection).
So I'm thinking IUD may be my best option. I am not sure whether I should go with Mirena or Paragard though.
