  • I'm pregnant right now (it was planned), but when I'm not I'm going to do the Fertility Awareness Method (FAM). You chart your temperature and fluids, and find out your fertile days and infertile days. You use condoms the days you are fertile. It's kind of work-intensive, but it's worth it for me to be able to stay away from the hormones and the drugs that can cause all sorts of side effects and undesireable consequences. Many friends of mine have been using the FAM and been very successful with it. Google it if you are interested.

  • Hubby had the snip and I take Seasonique(BC) because of PMDD, I don't like it! I have gained 5lbs in 2 weeks, I'm retaining fluid really bad, my heart is giving me problems, the list goes on... So much for feeling better,lol Now I'm waiting for the Dr to call me and tell me where we go from here...

  • I just got put on a low dose pill called FemCon, supposedly it's supposed to not be as harsh with the side effects as some of the other ones. We'll see. So far so good though.
