You do need a contraceptive that you can rely on, the pill does not suit us all, it certainly did not suit me at all, and I messed up got pregnant in my fourties and then had a miscarriage which was all very traumatic to say the least. The best thing I ever did was get myself to the family planning clinic and ask for there advice, I has the coil fitted and after a period of using other contraception to be sure that I would not make another mistake like before, I have felt sure that the coil is the contraceptive best for me.So why not do the same, they check you out health wise, weigh you, advise you, and give you contraception, you then can visit again for further contraception, or help.
