Hi all, just wondering what contraceptives you all use??
I cant take the pill so I am on Depo but considering the implants - anyone had those???
I've not had the implant, but I went on two types of the compined pill after being on the depo for a year and it made me feel like $hit! (You may remember my posts about it just before Christmas). I was always nauseous and depressed!
If we weren't looking to have another baby soon, I would have stayed on the depo or have had the implant. As it is, I am on the min pill now, and it feels no different to being on the depo at all! Quite a relief from being on the combined pill!

I was on the minipill for years and loved it. Just before we started trying for Ella my doc forced me to change to a combined pill and I had nothing but bother. Poss why we had so much ttc After Ella went to go back on pill, but begged Doc to give ne something different. Still not allowed minipill - something to do with it affecting migraines. Took it fir almost 10 years with no averse affects on my migraines. Anyway on a combined pill again and it is much like old minipill I had so much happier xx
