    I'm on that now.
    Oh right, and your experiencing the erratic bleeding?

    you wouldn't really have much of a choice mate. either always use condoms or go without sex. which was is the better option?

    All drugs have side effects. I am actually surprised that girls are so accommodating about taking the burden of contraception. I guess the fact that they can be left holding the baby plays a role.
    I remember reading a post ages ago from one girl who was on the implant and saying she was having a bad time with it (had been on her period for months, depression etc) and ended it with "no matter how bad it makes me feel at least it means I'm unlikely to be pregnant". I'm surprised some girls are willing to put up with these side effects.

    To answer the OP I've never been on the pill or any other hormonal contraceptives. I have a copper coil which works fine for me and used condoms before getting it.
