Some notes I took from watching The View today :D

Something to think about or look into if you're interested;

ortho evra - patch, change weekly, use one a week for 3
ring - plastic ring inserted into vagina, used as above
new IUD - progesterone coated, lasts 5 years
lunelle - monthly contraceptive, still get period unlike depo provera
cyclessa - low dose bc pill
yasmin - another bc pill, good for bloating, elements of a water pill
encare - suppository, nonoxynol 9, spermicidal
vcf - vaginal contraceptive film, spermicidal

coming soon - male contraceptive - an implantable rod to reverse sperm production

I think I've actually seen ads for Yasmine and Lunelle, so this might be an old show I was watching, but it does bring to mind other alternatives you might not have heard of.
