PLEASE NO DEBATING OR CRITIZING!!!

Do you think there is a "bad" form of birth control?? Or one that you wouldn't ever use??

I don't think that I would ever use Depo. I've heard bad things about it and I don't like shots enough to get it done.

I have to agree ... I was considering Depo when I go back onto b/c, but I did a bunch of research and am glad I did!

I am unsure about the pill and IUD because of the "back up plan" with those methods. I have to do more research to decide what I really think about it.

Depo. I literally almost died from it at 19. I ended up in the hospital in Germany & they tried to force a hystarectomy on me. I bled for over a year straight after taking the shot only once.

Yes, Depo is evil, horrible, poisonous stuff!


And beyond that, for us - anything that has the potential to disrupt a newly conceived life is a problem. So that's everything hormonal and the IUDs.

Everything hormonal has long term risks and I do think it's very unfair that women have to be medicated in order to be liberated. I don't like that they take a woman's perfectly healthy fertility and treat it like a disease or a curse. I like how I'm made, so we work with that - NFP.

Depo -- would never take it due to the side effects. Also the patch -- have never heard anything positive about it. And the ring -- had it for 10 days and the side effects were really bad for me.

Only recently have I been doing more research on birth control methods. Until now, I was always under the impression that hormonal methods, used correctly, would prevent ovulation completely. I thought that non-hormonal methods were the ones that thinned the lining of the uterus, preventing a fertilized egg from implanting. But now I've found out that you can still ovulate using hormonal methods, and they can also prevent a fertilized egg from implantation. So now I'm against all forms of birth control. We've been using the pull out method and will stick with it until dh gets his vasectomy. There's no other option for me.

I would never use Depo (as I see most people won't) and I never suggest it for others to use.

I've been on the pill and the patch and I have never had any major problem with either. I'm hoping to get an IUD next week so we'll see how that goes.

just popping in from the July PR.. I used Depo for like 4 or 5 years with no problems, ever..
I know there are some information about it now, which wasnt there when I first starting taking it.. never researched it myself, but I know there was something about it thinning your bones, right? theres probly more too..
I am off it now.. I only gained a few pounds, but thats it.. thats why i went off, I wanted to loose those pounds, heh.
I switched to Alesse, and got PG. =)
and they say you wont get PG for a year after taking it.. thats not true, lol.

For me it's Depo, the Patch and the Nuva Ring. I had bad side effects from the Depo and the Patch and with the Nuva Ring.. I ended up pregnant.
