I have 1 child. i got on the depo shot after i had her. and was on it for 2.5 yrs. i dont want to continue it bc they say not to be on it for mroe than 2 yrs. and ik it can cause blood clots with smokers and yes i smoke. so i need a new form. i dont think i could remember to take a pill every day. and i dont like the idea of the implant thing in your arm. or the ring, or the iud thingy? help?

Since you do not like any other method, only two are left:

Condoms with a dose or two of emergency contraceptives in your medicine cabinet for in case the condom fail.

If you are old enough and are done having children, something more permanent can be considered.

I was going to say something about you still smoking, but I am sure you already know about the damage that you are causing to your own body and those close to you.

Best of luck
