I was 20, in my first serious relationship and uninformed! i wanted to use fertility awareness but had no support. my doctor talked me out of it, i left the clinic with a nova-t iud which caused complications and unintented pregnancy within 6 months. i have charted my cycle ever since. get a second, third, fourth opinion, do research and maintain health at all costs!

I was 14 but I was put on the pill to control acne. However, I of course knew of all the other reasons for being on it. I can't imagine not having an open/caring/respectful Doctor. My Dr has always been very non judgemental, caring and unbiased. She gives me the facts and I open up more to her because of that.

I was a teen and they said it would be good for my skin. Bad choice on my part! I might have gotten better skin but everything else went way off whack!

Condoms were first when I was 18. After that, I was 21 before I ever had a Pap smear and used the pill for a year.

I started using birth control at 16 even though I wasn't sexually active. I had horribly irregular and painful periods and it helped greatly.
