I do not deal well with birth control. It sets me into rapid cycling b*tch mode. I know there are some other options out there now, but I'm always worried it will make things worse. However, if I were to become pregnant again right now, I would absolutely freak out. My 10 month old is a handful as it is. Even my mother-in-law asked if I was going to be on birth control after my daughter was born. I've also heard some horror stories about my friends birth control methods. I certainly will never try Depo!
I really don't know. I would like my daughter to have a sibling, but if she's anything like me, she'll need all the attention and love I can possibly give her. Hoping she gets her daddy's genes and enjoys a life free of mental illness. I also question my ability to balance another child. I'm wonderful with kids, and have worked with them my entire life, but I've always been able to give them back at the end of the day.
So right now, I'd have to say no, no more kids, but I can't guarantee I'll feel that way in a few years.
I also can't do anything hormonal, because it causes tremendous anxiety and panic issues for me. Right now, I'm lucky enough that my boyfriend has had a vasectomy so I don't have to worry about my own bc.
I can not take anything hormonal. Anything hormonal totally throws off my mood stability. I can't have an IUD because I've never had children, so when I tried one it was a very bad experience. I use a non hormonal barrier method.
I have physical problems with most birth control types so for me is a tedious trial and error. My last iud settled too low in my uterus and began to puncture the lining. Pills make me not be able to eat or I forget them. And depo makes me very ill. I just wish that b/c was not a factor in all of this. Feels as if something has been taken from me…like its no longer my choice but my doctor's
Yes it's the hormone one. The first time it was awesome for me. There's no doubt about that!! But the second time around my body didn't like it. I'm happy for you that you've found something that works for you.
