Which Birth Control Method?

Birth Control - what would be the safest method for me? I am 43, had a child 2 years ago, do not want anymore. I am on Pristiq for Post Natal Depression. I have used pill, implant and injection in the past, would like to know if I can have the pill again or injection method. I do not smoke, but I am overweight. Can you help please?

Welcome to ehealthforum

Since you have been using the antidepressant so efficacy of the pill might be decreased.You can go for implant or injections but your Gynaecologist would be examining you and then decide accordingly.You can again use the contraceptive methods so consider visiting a Gynaecologist for evaluation.

Take Care!
