Just curious if anyone else can't take the pill for any reason?

I can't because of my epilepsy medication!

I had nausea with it the first 2-3 months but then it went away and I've been fine ever since. Nope, been using it for the past 6 1/2, almost 7 years now.

i don't take the pill because after years of taking anti-depressants, i know how reliable i am to take a pill daily... and i don't want any surprises.

Thank you, Jaidynsmum, for the amazing siggy

I took it for about 2 years before DF and I started TTC, and I had no problems with it. I actually loved it.

I can't take it just because I can never remember to take it! and we all know what that can cause!

I don't really have any physical problems when taking the pill...I just didn't like the thought of what it might be doing to me after being on it for nearly 7 years non-stop. Not to mention the chronic yeast infections it was causing me, and the fact that it killed my sex drive.

Non-hormonal protection is much more appealing to me now lol
