If you were my patient, I would ask you to come in and sit down with me to discuss your birth control needs. There are many different types and many different considerations. One appealing option is the IUD. The Mirena IUD has few side effects (except that it often gets rid of your period--hooray)
and can last 5 years. The copper t IUD lasts 10 years.
Both are very cost-effective if used for the long term.
Schedule a consultation with your doc!
Hope this helps!
