I thought it'd be good if everyone who posts here - or lurks here, could post up an intro, so we all know who is around!

My name is Emma (at the time of writing this) I'm 24 years old & have an almost 20 month old daughter - Gaby. I live in New Zealand & we don't have access to a lot of the different pills & some forms of b/c that are mentioned here, so I like learning about them!

Hi! My name is Ashleigh! I've been around on this board for a while, though I have been off BCP for a while since my fiance, Kyle, and I have been trying for our first. I was on the pill for about 3 years before I went off it.

..Jessica.. July 23rd, 2008 10:47 PM

I'm Jessica and I'm 21! I was on the pill (Alesse) since I was like 14! I've recently switched to the generic version of it called Aviane and so far I don't like it! I'm anxious all the time, emotional, all I feel like doing is crying!!

I plan to talk to my doctor to switch to something else!

Hello! My name's Allison, I'm 25, married to Aaron, 28. Our first son, Aaden, was born June 17, 2008. I'm currently waiting for AF to appear again so I can start back on the pill, Ortho Tri-Cyclen LO.

Hi all, I'd like to introduce myself. My name is Maggie, married to Peter for 2 and a half years. My son, Jack was born July 29, 2007. I've been on b/c since I quit nursing (December '07). I was very shocked 3 weeks ago when I was late for my period and got a BFP on a HPT. :confused: Well, as it turns out, I'm not pregnant. AF came today and I guess I was just late having it due to stress and whatnot..UGH..it's a mess but, I need to start on my b/c again so, I will be joining you all I guess!!

P.S. My siggie is outdated so, I will get that fixed as soon as possible.

I'm Heide (28) and I have been married to Jamie (almost 33) for 4 years. We have 3 year old twin girls. I am on Ortho Tri-cyclene Lo. I want another baby, but dh doesn't right now, so I am stuck on the pill for now. :(

itsmenatalie September 25th, 2008 08:40 PM

Hey there - I just saw the link to this board on kasie's siggy and thought I would pop over. I'm Natalie and I'm 30. Two kids, DS Brad 10/05 and DD Lucy 05/08. I've been on the mini pill (Errin) since after having Lucy but I'm spotting all the time and looking for something else, but I'm still BFing. I have been on the pill since 2001 except when pregnant or TTC and never had this problem so I'm frustrated!

ShawnaCAN February 7th, 2009 01:50 PM

I'm Shawna. I advocate that every woman do her homework about the effects/risks of various birth control methods in order to make a fully informed choice! As a nurse, NFP Instructor, and fertility educator, I've had to learn about the effects of hormonal contraceptives, the pharmacology of how they work, and what to expect in terms of fertility following their use. I speak for the natural forms of birth control, because I think they are a great gift to women who want a reliable way to plan their families without putting their health at risk! Most people don't even know there are effective ways to do that!

I hang around to answer questions about BC's effect on fertility or just basic Female Plumbing questions. :)

Re: Introduce Yourself!!!
Im AJ and i just found this website this evening! I am so excited to read other people's comments and experiences with various birth contrl options-- I have been dissastisfied with my options for as long as it has mattered!

look forward to reading more as I am trying to make a change away from YAZ--but cant seem to figure out what all the abbreviations are!

Re: Introduce Yourself!!!
I guess I should introduce myself :)

I am a 23 year old female from Nova Scotia, Canada. I currently have no human children, but do have one fur-baby (an english setter named Rufus).

I live with my boyfriend of 5 years. Since we plan on having children within the next 3-5 years, I thought it might be good to start educating myself now ;) hah.
In the meantime, I will share my knowledge of not getting pregnant, here at the Birthcontrol board!

Re: Introduce Yourself!!!
Hi!! My name is Rachell I am 28 and I have been on birth control since I was 14...I have two kids that are 2 and almost 7...I have come to the conclusion that my b/c pill is making me a crazy psyco person..I was precsribed Ortho-tri cyclen...but for the last 5 months my pharmasicst has switched back and forth between the original and the gernric( tri-sprintec)...when I confronted him and told him that the gerneric is giving me side effects..he said nothing more than they are the same thing...My husband have been having serious issues and are close to splitting up...I am going to stop the pill when this pack is done.. Just wondering if I am really crazy or if anyone else has had similar problems as I am??? This goes beyond just being moody or emotional...Thanks for reading...

Re: Introduce Yourself!!!
Hi everyone! I'm Ana! I'm here from the Nov 2009 playroom! I got my first B/c shot in December and I hate it! Lol. I haven't been on b/c before so I'm just experiencing it!

Re: Introduce Yourself!!!
Hello everyone! I am Beth (38) and I had my DD in November 2009. I started bc pills this week (after not using bc for 10 years) to see if it will regulate my system. I have only had two episodes of spotting since the PP bleeding ended in December and rather than abstaining for the rest of our lives, DH and I decided that we needed to see if I could get my system back on track (my usual cycle was 28 day cycles, four days of AF) which made figuring out fertility through charting a breeze. DD will be our only bio child due to issues had during delivery so a tubal is a more permanent bc option we are considering in the coming months (once we get insurance)
