Birth Control

Started by Ruthy , author of Superfluous Ambitions 4/25/2012 2:29:04 PM

Does anyone want to give out their thoughts on birth control? I do!

Honestly I am just mad that no one has taken the time to make male contraceptives. Why does it always have to fall on the women to take care of that stuff. Contraceptives should be available to everyone. That way if both males and females are on some sort of birth control then the chances of having unwanted pregnancies would be greatly reduced. 

This topic has come up again because this morning I went to my OBGYN to get my old IUD removed and got it replaced with another IUD. Since November 2011 I had been researching alternative methods but I think and IUD works best for me. What are your thoughts on this?

I'm on the pill myself and I am so forgetful in taking it that my husband has actually put an alarm on his phone to remind me xD But I agree. Why is it only us that have to suffer medications and foreign objects to keep from getting pregnant. Yea, they have condoms, but seriously people, that's just not good enough.

We chose NFP so that responsibility for this was shared. I also refused to take a pill or put something hormonal in my body. Then once we were done w/kids hubby got fixed.

It does seem silly that the responsibility of birth control still falls squarely on us ladies! Brenda, who commented above me, seems to be fairing well now! ~Tui, from #commenthour

I had high blood pressure while pregnant so after that the doctor wouldn't let me back on the pill. So it was condoms for us. Then when I had my c-section for my son at 37 I had my tubes tied which eliminates the whole problem. Kathy http://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com

I have no problem taking a pill, I like to think that we'd better take care of it ourselves instead of putting it in the hands of our significant others (mine is totally forgetful). Pregnancy is not an easy fix mistake, totally life changing!

I had thought of NFP but the thought of tracking my temperature and ovulation and all that just freaks me out because I am busy and very forgetful. I really don't want an unplanned pregnancy. But then again I don't think I am the most fertile since it took about 6 months to conceive my daughter. But since I am very forgetful I cannot do the pill even if I set an alarm. I tired being on the pill and I would often forget to take it even with an alarm. I wish I were done having kids but the truth is that I am not sure if I want more kids. Or else I would have the husband get his tubes tied. He is also so for it. I am only 26 years old so the possibility of having one more child is still there although I am not ready for more kids at this time. That is why I decided to get the IUD. But there are so many side effects associated with it but I still decided to get it once again since it is the easiest and most convenient form of birth control. If you are interested about my IUD insertion and removal experience go here: http://superfluousambitions.blogspot.com/2012/04/iud-removal-and-reinsertion.html

Lucky... I get pregnant at the drop of a hat. Prolly the most fertile girl in the world LOL It kinda sucks but since hubby has more mental capacity then me in the "remember shit" department, I do pretty well on the pill.

I actually heard rumors awhile back that a company was trying to develop a male birth control pill. Not sure how valid the info was, but that would definitely change things up.
