Opinions on Birth Control Pills?
Alternative Lifestyles and Subcultures
Everybody's different. When I took birth control (I used Loestrin 24Fe) I never had any noticeable problems, I used it for 2 1/2 years it helped a whole lot with the terrible physical agonizing pain and sickness I get when I start my period which was the reason I decided to go on birth control in the first place, because seriously any kind of obligations I had school, work, whatever was not happening during that misery which was a problem, and you know I didn't have to worry about getting pregnant. And that's what I loved about birth control, it cured me of that pain and illness but I was always always always so paranoid about fucking my system up if I missed a day or didn't take it at the exact same time every single day which I did a lot and that's no good. Vaginas are so touchy and those lil doses of hormones change so much it's scary and can cause hidden minor issues that will later become known and severe if you don't regulate it properly. So being off of birth control (it's been 4-5months) I like that I am no longer paranoid about those things everything feels the way it should be- natural and I notice my sexual drive is going back up, downer side that evil pain is back and I worry about getting pregnant. Will I go back on birth control? Yes I want to, I'd still be on it if I had insurance to pay for it, however not being on it I see clearly how it has affected me and what has changed.
