What type of birth control do you and your partner use?

We use male condoms and the pill. I use Apri, a generic of Mircette.

I'm on Lutera. It's the only pill that didn't give me crazy side effects. I'm looking for a new method however because I don't like using artificial hormones.

Please comment with pros and cons!
Prior to the IUD my gf took the pill and I wore condoms. Periods happened like clockwork and even after a couple of hiccups there were no mishaps (pregnancies). She has had an IUD for over a year now and I never wear condoms... No mishaps (knock on wood ) and she only has a light period which varies but usually only happens about every 3 months. It's been a great choice for us and hope that it continues this way.

Non-hormonal IUD. Makes my period crazy, but oh-so-worth it.

Of course that only works if you've decided kids are out.
Did I mention its painless too! I never felt a thing while he was in the Operating Room!!! Buy him a bag or two of frozen peas - he'll love you for it.

I'm on Mircette, which is a bi-phasic pill.

I had the Dr. give me "the surgery" the same day they gave me my second C-section 12 years ago.

We use condoms and oral contraceptives...doesn 't hurt to double up! (contraception in general, NOT condoms!!)

I use Safyral brand of birth control, which I believe is the generic version of Yaz. As you may have heard, Yaz has caused problems in a lot of people--depression, health problems, etc. For me, I have had no problems at all with it, but be cautious and aware of your body!

We use natural family planning and withdrawal. I can't do the pill, and we have problems with condoms. 8 years, 1 planned baby and no oops babies....It works for us!

I've been on Ocella for awhile. I haven't minded it too much other than the monthly 3 day migraines I've been getting. But I've also been crazy moody lately, so we are switching back to condoms for a little while to try to figure out if the hormonal pill is the cause. Plus, yay for no migraines for a bit!
