Started a conversation similar to this in another subreddit (about menstrual cups lol) and it was very insightful, so i thought i might bring it here too. feel free to share your thoughts and experiences. keep it friendly! this is a safe space 🙂
For me, it’s Depo. It was the first method I ever used, and although it was good at protection, it horribly affected my mind and body (mood swings, depression, rapid weight loss/gain, migraines, spotting for 6 months straight). I don’t think I could ever go back down that road again. I’m currently a new copper IUD host (lol) so I can’t really say if it’s my preferred method yet, but I do like knowing i’m not being affected by hormones!
