im 21 and my hubby is 30.. we have a 2 yr old and im 37 weeks pregnant.. and after this baby i wanted to get fixed.. but my dr said she wont do it because of my age.. so has 3 other drs i talked too.. dh said he dint want to get fixed because he wants more..
im trying to find out more about birth control and cant find a place on here about any type..
when i was younger i was on the patch then the rin because i would only have 2 periods a yr.. and i had problems with both of them..
i have pcos so the pill isnt to good for me.. and just incase i change my mind im worried about getting an iud..
and i want something better then just a condom
do you know anything about birth control you can share with me..
I always thought The Pill was good for people with PCOS. I've been off and on the pill for 5 years and I've always adjusted well to it and never had any problems.
With the shot its important to take calicum supplements, because it steals calcium from the bones.Its also important to watch what you eat b/c the shot can cause weight gain.
Another option is the NuvaRing. I tried it and I didnt like it but some women do. My doctor gave me two of them to try. Its pretty easy you just leave it in for 3 weeks and the 4th week you take it out.
I would suggest not getting an IUD. Women either love them or hate them. They say the are safe now, but the same risks are still there. If you get an infection it can spread and scar up your reproductive organs and cause infertility. I can also get stuck in your uterus and require surgery to get it out.Those are risks that I wouldnt want to take. Some people say this stuff only happended in the 70's with IUD but thats NOT true! That's why they even say those risks on the Mirena commerical!But its a personal decision, choose whatevers best for you and read up about anything you consider taking and ask your doctor questions.
You could try a drug free approach by taking a Natural Family Planning course. With proper training, the effectiveness is much higher than just condoms - but you wouldn't have the side effects or health risks of drugs to worry about. Immediately reversible if you change your mind.
