A friends daughter (19 yrs old) is having sex with her boyfriend..she’s allergic to condoms..which is the better protection? I say IUD because it lasts 5 yrs..where the pill a person has to be responsible enough to remember to take everyday.

I'd say the deppo shot. While I'm not 100% certain I believe there are fewer risks than with a IUD

Btw.. I got pregnant while on the pill. I missed two days.

Isn’t there a shot she can get that lasts a year?

I'm certainly not condoning her having premarital sex, but not all condoms are made of latex. Fourex brand condoms are made of lambskin, and there will be no allergy problems.

I’m allergic to latex too... there are non-latex condoms. An IUD is the best bet versus the pill but neither do anything for STDs.

Not to mention one BC pill company accidentally put the pills in the wrong order recently 😳

Is she allergic to latex or all condoms? Usually it’s a latex allergy. You can get non latex condoms...better choice

Is she sure it isn’t the spermicide on the condoms? They can cause allergic reactions and UTIs.

She won’t be protected from STDs.

Also, it entirely depends on how her body responds. She may not be able to tolerate the hormones from either form of birth control and if she has menstrual problems, the IUD can increase her bleeding and cause other problems.
