    Does anyone have any advice when choosing birth control?

    I'm sexually active and I'm under 18. My mom keeps pushing me to get an IUD for birth control, but I'm so scared of the procedure and the exam that I'd rather look for an alternative. What are your guys' experience for birth control? Is there anything that I should keep in mind when choosing my method of birth control?

    I have the copper IUD. I really like the fact that mine doesn't have to be replaced for 10 years and it's non-hormonal. Having said that, I found the procedure painful and my periods are definitely heavier. I would get it again though.

    Any contraceptive must be selected by your doctor! I like the ring NovaRing. This is quite convenient than drinking pills every day at the same time, but it costs more.
