Which Method of Contraception do you Prefer?

evanescentowl evanescentowl
I'm curious to see what forms of birth control our community prefers~ I made it multiple choice in case you use more than one. Also, this is just for preventing pregnancy, not STDs. I might do a follow up poll since there are so many different items you can use for that, depending on the sort of sex you have.

I used "non-heterosexual" to try and be as inclusive as possible. ^ - ^

I currently have the Mirena, the worst thing ever. However, i'm not paying $150 to get it removed.

Before I had the mirena in we would just use the 'Pull Out' method. Seemed to work every time. Obviously it's not something I would recommend, but it worked for us.

Neither I nor my husband like condoms and I can count on one hand how many times we actually used a condom since the first day we were together.

It goes between condom and the pill. I've tried many forms and the pill is my favorite.

I'm sorry you don't like the Mirena! Any particular reason why?

I have the Mirena IUD, this is actually my second one and I love it!

I'm currently using the Ortho Evra Patch after many bad reactions to other forms. Aside from a few pounds added, I'm happy with it.

Haha if there's one thing my psychology (yes, psychology) class drilled into me it's "the pullout method does not work!" XD Just reminded me of that.


I'm sorry you don' like Mirena. D:

Tubal ligation.

(Leave it to me to find the guy I do want to have a child with after I got it done.)

she uses the IUD. But I prefer to not use anything. Her IUD messes with her cycle and whatnot.

I have been on the pill for awhile for health reasons, and when we started dating we used condoms just to be extra careful. Those got to be too costly, so now it's just the pill and pull-out. So far so good.

I'm not sexually active, so I have no need for contraception.

We use both male condoms and the birth control pill because it never hurts to be extra safe.

We use pull out method. I wouldn't recommend it for everyone, but it has worked for us the last 5 years.

Used to be condoms...Now that the operation has taken effect we are free to not worry about slipping one past the goalie.

Just had my second Paragard IUD inserted about a week ago. Absolutely love IUDs, but I would go for the Essure procedure if my insurance company would cover it.
