40 something moms- what type of bc are you on? I use spermicide Encare.

My gyno told me that it is not worth being on the pill and spending money on mirena .

  • None. I'm 48 and have not used any form of BC since I was 29 (hubby had a vasectomy back then).

    I can see where your doc is coming from, however at the same time. During our 40's many women's cycles become so sporadic that it is harder to keep an acurate track in order to stick with a 'natural family planning" route . So, if a woman in her 40's doesn't want an unintended/unexpected pregnancy she should use some form of birth control.

  • It's tracking your cycle and knowing when you can get pregnant based on where in your cycle you are at.

  • Sounds good. It is such a pain worrying about this at my mid 40's, but I would never go on bc pills.I get so hormonal and gain 10-15 no matter if it is high dose low dose I get huge!

  • Due to a complete hysterectomy at the early age of 34-I don't have to worry about BC.
