Anti Birth Control?

Is anyone else anti birth control? I am, but sometimes I feel like I'm the only one. I just don't think artificial hormones are safe for our bodies. Steroids is artificial testosterone, so isn't birth control kind of the same thing as that for estrogen? And we all know that steroids aren't healthy.

  • I was anti birth control, I had the same feelings you do. But then I got pregnant and went through all the pains we women go through and decided that birth control was best because i'm not ready to go through that again anytime soon.

  • that's not true. My mother never used any kind of contraceptives a day in her life and had 6 kids, and my MIL was the same way and only had 4. I'm not talking any contraceptives, just artificial hormones and things you stick in your uterus for 5 years plus. Condos not included.

  • You are anti-birth control but you don't know why? You sound confused. I would educate yourself about your decision. Know what each kind of BC is and how it works hormonally then make a knowledgeable choice.

  • Nah, I'm stating my opinion in question form, as in to make other ask themselves this question. You said I don't know why I'm anti birth control but clearly I do know why.

  • NFP is natural family planning. It's where a woman calculates her fertile period and avoids sex. I asked a mom in one of my groups when we were talking about birth control after having our babies but I really didn't ask for details.
