Alternatives / Methods for contraceptive
I am prone to DVT's (blood clots) and have had to go off the pill, which I have been on for many years. I do have a safe partner and would like to understand what my alternatives are to male condoms. I have not yet had children. Are there any "methods" or other options that I have that would not adversely affect my chances of having children in the future and still ensure not immediate pregnancy now.

You could use Depo provera or the Mirena.
