I'm going to see my doctor today regarding birth control options. Since I know that I'm really flakey with taking daily meds, I'm considering the patch or IUD. I really think the copper IUD is best for me, but I haven't heard from anyone who has actually had one. I hear it's really effective, which is a plus. I fit the req's for both the IUD and the patch, but I'd like to hear what you girls have experienced. Thanks so much.
