In my experience the Depo-Provera and Implanon contraceptive implant are comfortable and effective birth control.

I take the pill for birth control because my period has always been extremely irregular, long, and heavy. I started on it for acne reasons when I was younger and I kept it for contraceptive reasons later on. Even if I am using condoms, I could not live without the pill. It has its disadvantages, such as having to remember to take it every day at the same time (which does not always happen, I guarantee), but I just could not go back to living at the mercy of my crazy rebellious period.
