Does it really? My fiancé and I haven't... done it yet, waiting for the day. But that also means inexperienced and probably I'll prepared considering both of our parents are quite conservative. Are you able to have the implant removed once you want children, or no? And Where would you go to get one?
I would recommend reading through this! It was very helpful when I first started looking into birth control options. I’ve only tried the pill, and this method works well for me. In my 6 years of taking it I’ve been late for a pill only twice (by less than 12 hours). If you’re not good at remembering to take something every day at the same time, the pill IS NOT the option for you!

Yes I think it’s great! Once you decide you want kids you can go to the doctor’s to have it removed. Just a warning, it leaves a massive and sore bruise after getting it implanted. They have to make a hole under your arm and put the little implant inside just under the skin. Don’t want to freak you out, but it’s a big decision. If you want something more short term, I’d go with birth control pills that you take daily.

Yes, thank you so much. My fianceé and I are both very young. We will both be nineteen by the end of this year, but still. We are well-off enough for an "oopsie-baby" xD but we don't want kids for a good 5-10 years yet xD
I would recommend talking to your doctor and see what would be best for you. I was on Gianvi , the generic for Yaz. I didn’t have a problem with forgetting to take my pills, and there were only 4 of the placebo pills, so my period was basically nonexistent for the time I was on it. I’ve heard horrible things about the implant in your arm. My SIL was on it and gained a bunch of weight and her hair started falling out. Plus I’ve heard several horror stories from friends about it getting attached to your muscles and it being really hard and painful to remove. I’ve heard the IUD is a good choice. The shot works as well. But it all depends on how your body reacts to it!
“Oopsie baby”.... wow.
Go to your doctor and talk talk to them. They’re the only one who really can tell you what is going to be best for you.
I won't be using any. In fact I will be taking mine out the day before the wedding. However I have been using the Nexplanon implant for almost 3 years and will be replacing it in October (it's recommended you replace it every 3 years) you can take it out at any time when you decide you want kids. I am terrible at remembering the pill and there's no way I would use an IUD. Not one person I know who had one had a positive experience with it. There is also the shot but you CANNOT skip an appointment with those because everyone I know who has ended up pregnant. Like others have said make sure you talk with a health care provider to decide which is best for you.
I’d absolutely talk to your dr-My method is the pill which is nice for me because I do remember to take it (there’s other benefits but this is something your dr should be telling you not a we forum). I know a lot of people who have done the implant and swear by it (which I’m going to try after I have my first child). I’ve heard nothing but nightmares about IUDs. But again, please talk to your dr or go to planned parenthood. They can go over all risks and benefits and determine what fits for your body, routine, and time frame.
Condoms,withdrawal and Natural Fertility Awareness Method(FAM). I have not been on the pill for almost a decade and won't consider hormonal methods. I was on the pill for acne as a teen and it was horrible for me. I experienced vomiting every morning,painful periods,increased breakouts and worsened depression. I keep track of my periods and ovulation. I'm very aware of my body as is my fiance so if your not it might not be the best option for you. Also not every man is going to be good at withdrawal as it takes a lot of patience and practice which can be difficult in the heat of the moment. On the days I'm ovulating we use a condom. On the days I'm not ovulating we use withdrawal. With FAM some practice abstinence but we don't as I don't like the idea of not doing something so natural that brings joy when we can just use a condom. We have used the methods listed above for the entire time we have been together which is almost a decade with no babies and will not be having them for another decade. The method we use is not for everyone and you'll have to figure out what works for you as everyone is different. I suggest you speak with your doctor or if you live in an area that has midwives I suggest you consider speaking to one. Personally I prefer midwives as they are very woman centered in their approach and appointment times are usually longer which allow for more discussion. Personally I will only see midwives unless I absolutely need an OBGYN as I prefer them but everyone has their own preferences. Planned Parenthood is also a great resource although sadly many may be offended by the suggestion. They have a great search tool on their website that determines what methods might be a good fit for you. Also speak with your fiance and get his insight. I know it's your body your choice but he might have some good advice on what he thinks might work for you both. It's important for a couple to discuss birth control together. Birth control should not only be left up to the woman it should be a mutual effort as it takes two to make a baby. Hope this helps. Best wishes on your upcoming wedding and honeymoon.
