  • If birth control is against your religion, is the rhythm method? it's not exactly 100% effective, but it is somewhat effective. I know some people who don't believe in using birth control for religious reasons do this.
    It's worth trying to lose the weight, and keeping your weight gain to a minimum when you DO get pregnant again. Just be healthy about it, and take care of yourself. Good luck!

  • do you know why birth control is forbidden in religions? because it prevents procreation. religion doesn't want you to have sex unless you plan to have a baby out of it. go on bc if you don't want more kids. honestly faith and being a good person is a lot more important than stupid rules

  • I think you need to lose weight you want to stay at a healthy weight, and if you dont want anymore children dont have any, your never going to feel good about yourself if your overweight, plus you could develop sugar diabetes.

  • isn't it so easy to hear what you need to do??Well it's not!Yes we all need a little encouragement,It takes a lot to even admit what this little lady said.She needs all of us to encourage her,Yes she needs to lose weight,but yes she needs support !!! So I say YOU GO GIRL!I use portions to loose weight.Talk to a nutritionist at your local health dept.She will tell you all about portions.And they can advise you on bc too.Good luck Dear!!We all have a New Year to start over again.I'm jumping into it with both feet!!!
