My girlfriend and I have been talking about her switching from the BC pill to some sort of shot or another form of birth control. We're both pretty paranoid people (Birth control + Condom), as we're definitely not ready for kids. Plus, she's pretty bad at remembering to take it on time, and so sex without a condom (which would be the eventual goal) is out of the picture, for both of us. Now, I've looked at all the stats for birth control effectiveness, and any of the reasonably effective ones are between 97 --99% effective. The shot seems like the easiest one, to me, but only because the other ones involve inserting metal things or sewing things together. Basically just looking for insights on this. Any experience with the shot? Other forms? Ease of other forms? Personal effectiveness?
