my current birth control his a vax :) I/we started that when I was 30. I started taking birth control for the first time when I was 16.
I was diagnosed with menorrhagia when I was 15 and put on a low dose BCP to regulate my cycle.
I was in my early 20's. My body doesn't like birth control.. So i can't take the pills, i've tried to IUD, i've tried the arm implant, I've tried it call. Finally after a year and 3 months my body has finally liked the Depo... however ive gained 10 lbs from it
I was 16
I was put on birth control pills when I was 14.
It was a decision made after I was hospitalized with an ovarian cyst the size of a grapefruit. When they did an ultrasound they found I had a total of 27 cysts between both my ovaries. They said with every ovulation a cyst had formed. Stop the ovulation, stop the cysts.
For the record- because I know it is often thought that, by placing a teenager on birth control you are telling her it is okay to have sex- I didn't have sex for more than 2 years after going on the pill.
16, stopped at 20, started again around 27, stopped at 29. Then took the mini-pill after each pregnancy for about 4 months. Never again! I am done with BC pills. Hubby had a vasectomy in '09.
