default Contraception Options !!

Post by emmiesmummy on Tue May 17, 2011 4:14 pm

Well many of you will have seen via Facebook that im starting dating, scary stuff !!!

Anyway it has thrown up a question about contraception, didnt have to worry all the time i was married but now obviously i need to give it some thought.

Doctor has advised agaist the pill because of my age so has suggested an implant or the Merina coil, havent used either and wondered if anyone here had ,if so what were the good & bad experiences.

Thanks ladies

I would avoide Merina like the plague, but the copper one is supposed to be ok.

This is something I have been thinking about but I am still using NFP mostly and condoms.
