Best form of birth control

This question is for women who are in a steady relationship or married, that no longer use condoms to protect themselves from STD's.

There are SO many types of birth control methods out there from the pill, to the shot, to the ring, and so many more. What is your personal favorite and are there any forms that you have had a bad experience with?

The most effective, for us, is my husband's vasectomy. I've had bad experiences with the patch (extremely high blood pressure) and pill (no libido).

The best form of birth control is whatever works *best* for you. And that is just a matter of trial and error.

I thought I was doing great on the pill until I stopped taking it and realized what a freakin' roller coaster I was on in regards to my libido and my emotions. I stopped it about four months ago and I've never been hornier or more emotionally stable in my life. I'd been on the pill for fifteen years and I just didn't know the difference.

condoms are also a form of birth control? just thought I would clarify that. As Stormy said, there is no one form of birth control that works for every woman. If that was the case, there wouldn't be so many options available.

I was on the pill for close to a year, and I accidentely got off it because I lost my prescription and had to wait another three weeks to get it. It was great. My sex drive went back to normal and I felt better. No more pill for me!

I just went on the Depo shot today and so far, I haven't had issues. Of course, it's only been a day, so obviously I can't gauge the side effects yet.

It really is trial and error. I just got an IUD inserted. It was a rather painful and uncomfortable procedure, and I still have cramps from it a week later. But it's safe, and it's supposed to be very effective.

I would say IUD that's my plan of action. It seems the easiest as well. Just go to the doc and they place it. That's it for 5 or 10 years.

Didn't have to be on anything while married - ex-husband had a dead libido and I took the faithful vows seriously. That was my worst form of birth control. (So, I started an affair the night after I booted him out, and went on the Pill.)

Got my tubes tied a few months ago, so I'm done worrying about it. Since Master doesn't want children, either, it worked out for both of us.

Granted, my methods were extreme and they're certainly not for everybody (wouldn't wish marriage celibacy on anyone), but sterilization is a good option if/when you decide you don't want any kids at all or are through with having them.

I was on depo provera (shot) from 17-20 years old and it makes you fat and messes with your hormones and body. I didnt mind then but now lookig back I wouldnt do it again. I never wanted the pill but I had to get off depo and wanted the pill bad. I did really good with the pill but my new jobs makes me forget to take it sometimes now.

I love Nuvaring, its made my periods infinitely better (no cramps, lighter and shorter) and I generally feel better and have less mood swings. The ring hasn't effected my sex drive at all (still ridiculously high). I still use condoms in addition to the ring as a back up but I can't risk pregnancy at all since I have plans for graduate school. However, without condoms when used perfectly the ring is 99.7% effective.
