I've seen a few posts on this but I'm still confused so I apologize if these queries have been answered. I've never used any form of birth control other than a condom and emergency contraception. I've come to a point where I need to be on some sort of birth control however I don't want to be on anything that will effect my hormones too much and from what I've gathered aas may also reduce effectiveness of the birth control. Also, does that mean that emergency contraception could be less effective? With this in mind I thought about other non-hormonal methods I could consider. Do any women here use non-hormonal birth control methods? Which do you prefer and how would you rate the effectiveness and convenience? I've been looking into something called a copper IUD. Thanks in advance ladies!
