Thanks for your query.

There are so many safe methods but hormonal Intra Uterine Device IUD (mirena ) are 99.9 % safe and have so many advantages:
- They can be used for 5 years ,
- reduce periods cramps
- make period lighter,
- the ability to became pregnant returns quickly
The have only one disadvantages large initial cost.

Depo-provera is another method very safety (99,7%) and very convenient, because it is cheaper (than Hormonal IUD) and one injection prevents pregnancy for 11-13 weeks.

She can use and copper IUD because is safe around(97%) and is very effective for at least 10 years and the best advantage is cheap.

Thanks for your query
