What Birth Control Method/brand Do You Use And Why Do You Like/dislike It?

I am on minastrin and just learned some women experience depression with it and that it doesn't really help with pcos symptoms like others might. That explains so much! I want to talk to my doctor but wanted to get some ideas/opinions first.

Nothing has really helped me as far as birth control. I personally experienced a lot of anxiety and depression with copper iud.... has anyone tried the arm implant ?

Im on the copper IUD and love it. Never have to remember to take anything. I personally get extreme mood swings with hormonal birth control, so this was personally my best option.
