The internet is chock full of birth control horror stories. Raging Hormones! Broken Condoms! Vaginal Rings flying through the air like UFOs!

And while it's important to be honest about the issues people face with birth control, including the trial and error of finding a method that fits their needs, a constant focus on the negative makes people afraid to use contraception. So, are there times birth control helped you out in a big way, or times when you felt like you really got to have a say in which method you chose?
