what kind of contraception should i suggest her(with least side effects)
I can understand you asking if you are concerned for this person, who is a friend, engaging in dangerous activity. Or perhaps your friend is shy, and won't go see a gynocologist out of fear or embarassment. I can't gather whether or not your friend has already had children at all, but as for a long term form of birth control if your friend has a habit of forgetting to take a pill, I highly recommend an IUD. These are usually only inserted for women who have previously given birth. HOWEVER, most birth control only controls THAT... BIRTH/PREGNANCY... if she is NOT in a monogamous relationship, and/or is unsure of the monogamy of her partner. THE ONLY BC I can think of that would be of use against BOTH pregnancy AS WELL AS sexually transmitted disease, are the condom. BUT a condom carries a failure risk of somewhere between .5 and 4%... by no means fool proof! The only failure proof, undeniably 100% effective would be abstinence.
If your friend is not monogamous or is unsure of her partners monogamy, condoms everytime, used correctly, is the best choice. BUT PLEASE convince your friend to see a physician to discuss in DETAIL her sexual history and current activity to come to a conclusion together on the best way to keep her SAFE! Seeing a doctor is the only way to really decide what is best for herself, her body, and her future!!
