Stopping BC and just using condoms

My husband wants me to stop the pill, he fears later I may get cancer from it. He thinks we should just use condoms. We aren't afraid of having another baby, we want another in a few years. Otherwise I would have my tubes tied after our last baby. But I am on the fence. Anyone ever have this discussion with their husband, or what's your opinions and thoughts?

  • The pill does have some side effects and longtime problems could arise. It's actually scary to read the warning label that comes with the pills in the first place.

  • i never heard about bc causing cancer? really?

    I am no longer on bc. and to be honest it was the best decision for us. my libido was GONE! I only had sex because I felt bad always rejecting it most of the time. Once we got into it it felt great but the getting horny part was gone. I accidentally missed the appt to get more bc and never had the chance to reschedule. Since being off it my libido is back in full swing. I get that healthy horney feeling and it has brought us closer!

  • I think it should be a mutual decision. If you want to stop BC go for it but if you rather stay on it. talk to him about another form. Maybe the paraguard IUD

  • We used condoms exclusively for 13 years and only got pregnant when we wanted to. I think they are a good choice for couples that know there is a risk to getting pregnant and can deal happily with another baby.

  • I know there are affects. I hate putting things in my body that I don't need. So I am seriously considering it.
