hello J.. i am 22yrs. of age. i have been on all kinds of birth control. i liked the mirena, but my girlfriend got pregnate. she couldn't have it removed until her son was born. when he was born, the iud was stuck to his head. he is fine, but it was kinda weird to see the baby with this thing stuck to his head. now inplanon made me gain soooo much weight. i think that the method of firth control that i like the best is ortho tricycline. the pill. i didn't gain any weight and it works the best for me. if you have any more questions, just write me back.
