Birth Control Issues
I have been posting how I would like to try for another child, but my husband has not gotten on board. Well, we recently bought a house and moved. Prior to this transition, I was on time with my birth control. However, I have not been able to stay on top of my birth control since the move. This has been going on for two months! I take it on time for a couple of days and then totally forget to take it for three or four days. I told my husband, out of respect for his wishes, and we began using condoms. I have only recently decided to stop taking the contraceptives. Has anyone ever used the tracking fertility method to avoid pregnancy?
Hormonal birth control like the pill comes with risks, so I'm glad to hear that you've decided to stop it altogether.
Natural Family Planning is very effective. I used it for 7 years with 100% effectiveness. I created a thread called Natural Birth Control which has more information that will be helpful to you.
Yes as long as you are following it properly and learn to read your body, it is effective. I also have used it to fall and not fall pregnant with success for the last 5 years. There are also practitioners around I believe that specialise in Billings Methods for example that can help if you need it.
I suspect your husband is worried about finances with a new house move etc - with Dads the whole "provider issue" is the key. Unfortunately no form of contraception other than abstinence is 100% safe.
I am on tri-cyclen lo, and I am mostly happy with it, but I am just curious to see what others think and like just in case I wanted to switch.
I don't really need it for anything other than birth control, like skin issues or anything, but I mean if I good one is known to assist with that, it can't hurt.
