Which contraception to choose?


So I had my 6 week check today and I was prescribed cerazette.

I was on Microgynon for 15 years before I had baby but I can't have a combined pill anymore due to migraines with auras.

I've been reading some horror stories online about cerazette and don't know whether to take it or not now?!

The doctor also suggested the coil or the implant, would really appreciate any other ladies experiences with any of the three mentioned. I've been told yasmin is the best pill to go on but doctors don't like to prescribe it because its expensive?

I had the same problem (migraines) with the pill which is why I went off of it. DH and I use NFP now. We've been using it for 14 months and love it

I guess it means not during fertile period?

Cerazette buggered up my cycles totally. Would be very reluctant to go back on it.

Natural Family Planning It's basically when you chart your temperature, cervical mucus, and cervical position to determine when you're ovulating. If you're ttc you can then have sex on the days you're fertile, but if you're not trying (like me) then you can use an alternative method or just abstain from sex altogether. I use a diaphragm on my fertile days

If you can't go on combo pills then why would Yasmin be an option? That's both estrogen and progesterone. I know since I took that for a while. I hated the pills. Used them for a year and a half. Never again. I did the nfp with temperature charting cervical position and mucus for 2.5 years for contraception plus the pull out method. The only reason we got our surprise is because we were less than careful when we knew we should have taken more care.
I will use this again when my cycles come back.
I highly recommend fertilityfriend.com an excellent tool for this and educational. Spend the $45 or whatever it is on the full memvership. It's worth it and cheaper than buying other types of contraception!

I didn't realise yasmin was a combined too. It's not an issue of cost, contraception is free in the UK

I don't think I could risk natural family planning, I need to know there is actual contraception at work.... I totally respect and envy those who can do it though.
