Do you or do you not use birth control?

I don't use birth control mostly because I do not trust pills. I took BC when I was a teenager because my menstral cramps were so bad and I swear the pills made me feel worse. Plus if I ever wanted to stop having children I would just get an operation done rather than pump myself full of hormones. That's just me though.

What's your take on it?

  • I feel the same way. I don't like putting any kind of chemical in my body. However, I am on Nuva Ring. I did my research and found that it was the best for me. I do have a bad case of baby fever and that's why I need to be on it.

  • Yes I do. I took it when I was younger to help with my menstrual cycle. Now I take it so I dont get pregnant. It didnt work last time so we'll see what happens when my DH gets back home. I dont like the hormones either, but Id rather take the pill or something than have a child we're not prepared for.

  • I don't take Birth Control...My BF and I have been together 6 years,and have a 3 year old together,and we're in love with each other so if I were to get pregnant again it would be another blessing just like our son!! If I werent in a committed relationship my views would probably be different though I'm sure...

  • I should add that I don't think NFP works. I think if your not ready to have a baby, you shouldn't have sex-married or not.

    Yes, I know that I'm birth control. I am however ready for another baby.

  • Don't stop having sex cause you don't want kids. Your man can always wear a condom.

  • Those aren't 100%, as with all birth control.

  • I do not use birth control, but I am not opposed to it for others. For me, I prefer natural family planning, which is not assuming you know when you ovulate, but actually knowing.

  • NO. BC makes me puke. It makes me FEEL pregnant. DH wears condoms. Although after this baby is born, DH is getting snipped. :)
