Birth Control

Katie

Hi all!

I have never taken birth control and I am currently 19. I'm looking into it now mainly for preventing pregnancy. I have decent skin that rarely acts up, so I would want to stay away from the hormonal stuff... I am a bigger girl and I don't want to get any bigger (which I've heard is possible through birth control). I am also trying to get it done without my parents knowing because they don't really talk about this stuff with me...we never even had "the talk".

Does anyone have any suggestions for birth control? I.e. Either IUD or the pill, etc?
