What is the best contraceptive for a teenager?

Depends on her: There is no one contraceptive that works best at any age. All birth control options except sterilization are reasonable for teens: condoms, diaphragm, pills, depo, implanon, iuds.

Tubal ligation: My first question would be how many pregnancies have you had and the number of living children. If you feel you that you want no further pregnancies and you have risk factors against using several other forms of birth control, as you do, I would consider a tubal ligation.
