There are a lot of birth control options out there now. After having Critter, I talked with my doctor about finding the right option for me. After all, as exhilarating as it is to play ding-dong-ditch on death’s door, I’m really tired of being nauseated. I don’t want that again in the near future.
After a lot of back and forth between my doctors about whether I was a candidate for hormonal birth control, we settled on an option: Nexplanon. Nexplanon is a small rod that is inserted into the arm. It lasts 3 years and has a failure rate of .05 percent.
