Am I not cut out for birth control?

I reeeeally want the IUD, but I keep getting abnormal pap smear so there is no way. I've never reacted very well to hormonal birth control. What should I use?

  • I do the same thing, we did the natural family planning for a while and didnt get pregnant for 4 years, untillwe wanted to try again. Maybe worth a shot.

  • i used condoms for 12 years before wanting to get pregnant. effective, but not the MOST fun... you get used to it though, and it was so much fun when we finally stopped using them!
    i couldnt take any form of hormonal bc.

  • Try Yaz, it is a different kind of hormonal bc pill, it is a low dose hormone.
