I have to make up my mind what to use. I was on the pills before Bayram. But I'm so clumsy and lost-minded. I always misplace my pills (they're supposed to be next to my bed, how I misplace them?? I don't know!) and I always forget to take it. Sometimes two days in a row. I'm seriousely considering Paraguard this time. Has anybody tried it? Does it hurt when it's being inserted? What else have you used?

I have only used the pill and since we are done having kids now DH has agreed to get a vasectomy.  I was always really bad at remembering to take the pill also until I started to set an alarm on my phone.  Maybe that would help you remember?

I agree, maybe an alarm on your phone?  Or I used to take them at the same time with a certain routine every day  - I have my morning routine, I drink my coffee and I take my daily vitamins, I would just take my pill then too, and it worked alright.  Now I have had my tubes tied, I am actually really glad we are done with all that :smileytongue:
