Birth control experiences

I've been wanting to go on BC since I've started having sex, but I'm not too sure which option is the best for me. With every type of BC, there are some side effects I don't like & as of recently my mom has been saying she wants me to start using IUD.
I have a consultation with my OBGYN to talk about my options, but I want to go in with some insight. 
Please share your experiences on whatever type of BC your using. Thoughts, dislikes & any type of side effects you may have.
