Which contraceptive to use

Hi Doctor.
My partner and I have always used condoms as the method of contraception. I am now seriously considering using another method, either the pill or a device like Merina. I am in my late 20''s. Would the pill be the better option, as I want to have kids in the next 3 or 4 years. Will it make me fat?

The Mirena lasts for 5 years, so the Pill might be a better option. Weight gain is not a common side effect of the Pill.
Best wishes
