    I have heard that IUDs are really good and don't have a lot of side effects. But really hurt when put in. Can someone talk about if that's true?

    It really depends on your body and how it reacts to hormones, etc. The pill is the standard form, but I always found it difficult to take at the same time daily. For years I used Nuvaring, which I loved because it's inserted for 3 weeks at a time and you don't have to think about it. It's also comfortable and easy to use. I recently got an IUD (Mirena - the hormonal one) and it did hurt a bit during the procedure, but the pain didn't last too long. Again, everyone's bodies react differently to birth control, so I can't say my experience will be the same for you. I will say though that an IUD is the most effective birth control - you're less likely to get pregnant than having your tubes tied. So if pregnancy prevention is your biggest concern, I would suggest the IUD. If it's to control acne, cramps or regulate your period, I might suggest something else. I would recommend meeting with your doctor to discuss options, as their insights will probably be the most helpful for you
