birth control

Wondering what the best birth control is? I've never took it and just had my 3rd baby and don't want anymore. I'm considering mirena...anyone have any suggestions? Thanks!

Birth control is a harder decision than u would think I chose the wrong one and I know have server blood clots I have them in my legs and lungs which has made this pregnancy very difficult please be careful with what u choose cause the wrong one could literally cost u ur life I know I almost died in December with a clot to my heart causing a stroke I'm only 29 years old.

I am done with birth control, this is my third pregnancy and after altering my body three times and having a lot of complications with birth control in the past it is my husband's turn...vacectomy is scheduled after this birth!

I'm also on my 3rd and done my husband has agreed to get a vasectomy but I also want something that will either give me lighter periods or take them away completely. Also I don't want a surprise baby down the road as vasectomys can reverse. I had mirena between all 3 pregnancies and loved it there weren't any side effects except an almost non existent period. I'm either gonna go on mirena again or I'm contemplating get my tubes tied not sure yet.

I don't trust birth control. I was on it and got pregnant. This will be my 2nd and I'm done. I'm getting fixed before I leave the hospital. Also all the hormones don't agree with me in birth control.

I used the depovera shot. You get it I think every 3 months.  It was better for me since I wouldn't have to worry about missing pills and I didn't want anything implanted. Everyone has different affects. Some people gain weight when on it or when getting off it.  I didn't notice much of a weight gain.

I had the Mirena for 4 yrs and I kept Pelvic inflammatory disease (PID) I will not be getting it after this baby and it's my third also maybe you should get your tubes tide

The deposit provera shot made me bleed for 7 1/2 months straight. It made me gain mass amounts of weight and brought my anxiety up. It also weekend my bones. all that from getting the shot 1 time. I wouldn't recommend the depo provera shot.
