Birth Control…Yeah it’s THAT post…Sometimes you gotta have that “Girl” post & need some honest feedback. Sorry guys!
Currently I am not on birth control because I’ve had some issues with it. I used to be on LoEstrimin 24 and it worked great for about 2 years. My boobs got bigger, I actually thinned out a bit, and my ridiculous period schedule became a reliable routine. Then suddenly it didn’t. I would be on my “ACTIVE” pills and have spotting mid second week and it would continue on up until I eventually got that damn period. Once I think I had my period for like 20 days straight and I was like huh???? What the hell is going on here?? I was discouraged because this happened for a few months, so I stopped taking it.
I tried taking it again during the last bout of holidays and it made me an emotional mess. I have PMDD and it actually amplified it. I was sweating constantly in 20 degree weather, crying a lot, and felt like I was in a daze. I was like “This isn’t me” what is going on here and once again during the “active” pills I was spotting after a week. I would take the pill at the time I was supposed to and it would stop but a few hours later it would return almost like the active pill ran out of my system. Who the hell knows, I’m not a doctor.
Well…I want to go on the pill again because it would make my life so much easier now but I’m a lil cautious due to my past history. I’m terrified of YAZ because of all the cautions I’ve heard and a friend of mine had severe blood clots from it. I can’t fathom how the NuvaRing works and frankly the annoying constant commercials drove me utterly insane for it that I don’t want to use it. But, how would it stay in? I imagine it would be like a game of ring toss and if your bf won your in trouble. I know there is a shot you can get for six months or something but I don’t know much about it. I’m looking for a pill that will work for me and the chances of spotting after a week is feasible.
Now ladies…I have to ask and it’s okay if you answer anonymously because I know this is a sensitive subject for people…What birth control do you use? Have you ever had a response like mine or know someone who has? Has anyone tried that Seasonique where there is I think 4 periods a year? I would really appreciate the feedback here. Any suggestions?
Thank you in advance!!!! =)
