Anything that works: Any form should be fine. If using oral pills, however. Check the INR regularly since hormones can affect the metabolism of warfarin.

Options: A good health history should be taken, including sexual history & evaluation for high risk sexual behavior. At the minimum, a breast & pelvic exam with pap smear & cultures for std. All options for birth control should be offered & discussed. Usually a follow up for blood pressure check after 1-2 months if using birth control hormone therapy.

Birth control: The method that has the least side effects, and that is used by more women would be the contraceptive pill. All forms of hormonal contraception have side effects, but the pill is tolerated better by more women.

Personal Preference: If you want to have a baby soon then do not consider the Progesterone options. It would be better to use the pill or the nuvarina because it is easier and faster to conceive after stopping. Otherwise, it is just personal preference. Just remember with the pill, you have to remember to take it at the same time each day.
