Birth Control??

Posted by on Feb. 23, 2013 at 10:25 AM

I have NEVER been on any form of birth control and am really nervous about pumping extra hormones into my body.I have done a bit of research and it seems like everything causes negative effects.I also see the commercials on tv talking about suing because of blood clots, etc. It freaks me out! But we recently had our second child and I do not want anymore.The idea of condoms makes me feel like I'm 18 years old. What do you use?

After the kids I used low hormone stuff for BF.

Then went to the regular pill, and it worked great. *I* had no adverse side affects.

But then, when DH and I were done FOR SURE he got fixed. There's just no sense in me using extra hormones and whatnot.

I have way more sexual want now too which is funny, I never noticed it was dwindling.  :)

Everyone here will like something different and don't let the horror stories get to you. GL!

Which pill do you take? I have heard people say a major side effect is low sex drive. That is the last thing I need right now lol and mood swings as well.
