In brief: You won't like this

Abstinence.
..Of course. Beyond that, Mirena (levonorgestrel) or Implanon are extremely effective, have little or no drug-drug interactions, and you can't forget them. Surgical sterilization is also very effective, but obviously requires surgery and it's risks. Talk to your obgyn for more details.
