Nonhormonal birth control options

So I was on the pill for a few months until my doctor advised me to stop them because I get some migraine symptoms.

Since then I have just been using condoms, but I know its not really a good long term method.

What non hormonal methods would you guys recommend?
this link will bring you to a site that will show you  your option. 

Condoms are a perfectly fine long term method, As long as you use them correctly. 

Another non-hormonal method not listed there is Essure. It's a small implant that looks like a spring which gets inserted into the Fallopian tubes and encourages scar tissue to grow over it, blocking sperm from entering your uterus. Essure is permanent, but if you know you don't want kids, it's something to consider.

?Unlike other permanent birth control, the Essure procedure does not require cutting into the body or the use of radio-frequency energy to burn the fallopian tubes. Instead, an Essure trained doctor inserts soft, flexible inserts through the body s natural pathways (vagina, cervix, and uterus) and into your fallopian tubes. The very tip of the device remains outside the fallopian tube, which provides you and your doctor with immediate visual confirmation of placement.?During the 3 months following the procedure, your body and the inserts work together to form a natural barrier that prevents sperm from reaching the egg. During this period, you must continue using another form of birth control (other than an IUD).After three months, it?s time to get an Essure Confirmation Test to verify you?re protected from the worries of unplanned pregnancy. The test uses a dye and special type of x-ray to ensure both that the inserts are in place and that the fallopian tubes are completely blocked.Unlike birth control pills, patches, rings, and some forms of IUDs, Essure does not contain hormones to interfere with your natural menstrual cycle. Your periods should more or less continue in their natural state.
