There is no 'best' method of contraception, just a number of methods with compromises on something or other and only you can decide what's best for you.

If you're rubbish at remembering, then your list of ones to consider should include the implant (staggeringly reliable, involves having a small bit of plastic under the skin of your arm), the IUD (very reliable, involves having something in your uterus - available in versions with or without hormones) and the injection (very reliable, but if it doesn't work well for you, you're stuck with the side-effects for several months).

Try this tool it'll help narrow down options based on your preferences:

I have a copper coil and I'm fine with that. However some girls get very heavy, long and painful periods on it and others don't like the idea of coils altogether.

I've been on the implant for nearly a year. I've had the pill for years as I suffered with back aches and tummy pains from periods. But it didn't work for me as a contraceptive, I go out on nights out and if you're sick or have diarrhoea then the pill won't work and your contraceptive therefore is void. I decided to go with the implant because I'm forgetful and taking a pill every day is too much of a faff and I worried a lot about the being sick thing. So I went for a more long term form I considered the coil but if it is dislodged or moves again the contraceptive dosen't work. I considered the injections but the implant was the best for me it lasts 3 years. It has caused my periods to be every three months rather than one, this varies and if you need the reassurance of your period the implant might not be for you.

Maybe the implant or a coil which last a few years? Or the patch or ring so you only need to change them weekly instead of remembering to take a pill every day.
