Birth Control Options

posted 8 years 4 months ago
I have been on oral contraceptives for the past three years. I will be off them by the end of the year because we will be having our second baby next year. The pills can really cause some sort of discomfort and gets me in weird moods most times.

Does anyone have other birth control options that work well without noticing you are on them?

Birth control pills make me crazy, too...I find that my moods are a bit like a rollercoaster when I'm on them, and I've tried a few different types. I'm not using any birth control right now because we are trying for our second, but I think after that we will just use condoms. I don't like the way that BC makes me feel, those rollercoaster emotions are exhausting if you ask me!

I only used birth control or condoms. I did not like the pills because they caused me to have severe headaches and made me gain weight. I have known people to use the shots and have had luck with them but I was always hesitant to use them. There are so many different options out there that it can get confusing. I hope you find one that works for you.
