Hi, I hope I can get some advice. I am looking to change from the pill to another method. I just keep forgetting to take it. What do you girls use? I am debating between the injection and the coil? Any pros and cons I should know about?
Thank you!

injection can affect return to fertility so if you want a baby in the future you need to be aware of it. There is a tendency to put weight on with it too. I bled all the time and put on loads of weight so only had 2 jabs.

Had mirena coil for 5 years and it stopped my periods completely
