    Yeah, but the point is that if you get side effects you change the pills, not try to suffer the side effects. :P Because it really depends on the person and the pill mark if you're getting the side effects or not and also if they have both estrogen and progesterone or just the second one. Same hormone but different pills and you might react compeletely differently. I've changed mine once because the previous ones made me grouchy.

    Also one point in NuvaRing is that because it's changed once a month, the amount of hormones stay more stable and because of that you're supposed to get less side effects than with pills taken once per day. (Btw, i've heard two of my friends praise it and that's why I would have liked to test something similar)

    Okay, i guess that's an acceptable reason. :P

    Well.. yeah.. that sucks to be honest. But I think it's a less bad thing to take them something like 5 years of your life (time you're having a serious relationship but not babies) than being afraid all the time of getting pregnant (especially with my extremely non-stable menstruation cycle). After (hopefully) having babies some day I think I'm gonna get a coil.

    Ops.. Sorry, i think i used a wrong word. That's what the online dictionary said but...

    This is what i ment: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intrauterine_device

    (Dictionary says "a coil: Common name for any intra-uterine contraceptive device (Abbreviation: IUD)-the first IUDs were coil-shaped.&quot

    Ohhh...

    See, I'm grossed out by the idea of putting something up there and leaving it for so long. I guess it works for some, though.

    I think I've got used to the idea since i've known so many women who have done that and been pleased about not needing to worry about taking pills, changing rings etc. But I've heard it's better not to have it before you've given birth babies. For some reson. Can't remember why, though.

    They're perfectly natural - many birth control hormones are obtained from plants like yams and a type of pea (can't recall which species off the top of my head). Women have been using one form of hormonal birth control or another for thousands of years.

    Until I get my hysterectomy, I'm staying on some form of hormonal birth control because I can't stand the wide array of completely hideous symptoms that the PCOS causes (and they have the added bonus of no baby making). I change pills up every couple of years because they stop being as effective. The Lo-Ovral was good to me for almost 10 years, but the hair loss in year 8 or 9 or so kind of put an end to that beautiful relationship. I'm like, yeah, I'm going to break out, have sore boobs, horrible cramps, bleed erratically and with no rhyme or reason... but I won't be bald.

    Right now I'm on a low-dosage partial-month pill that uses strictly progesterone. It controls some of the symptoms like breaking out, boob pain, and for the first couple of months it controlled the erratic bleeding - but I'm 9 months in and my cycles are getting weird again, so I may need to up the dosage.

    I'm still trying to talk my dr into a tubaligation but since I'm only 32 they are hesitant. They know I can't take BC so that's why Hubby had the vasectomy but his last sperm check a couple months ago showed small amounts of sperm and the urologist is concerned that it could be growing back (rare but does happen).

    I'm compleatly and utterly DONE having children. I hope the Dr's agree!

    But i wish that would be an option, because it sucks to take a pill everyday. (of course I could take a two-years-lasting progesterone capsule to my arm.... but I don't like the idea. )

    It has to do with a higher rate of expulsion due to the shape and tone of uterine muscle. Baby stretches all that out, so it stays in there better.

    (for people that don't want hormonal BC, you can get a copper IUD)

    So...when are you going to pop that baby out and start nursing for five years? After all, thats "natural". :P

    “You have never answered but you did not need to. If I stand at the ocean I can hear you with your thousand voices. Sometimes you shout, hilarious laughter that taunts all questions. Other nights you are silent as death, a mirror in which the stars show themselves. Then I think you want to tell me something, but you never do. Of course I know I have written letters to no-one. But what if I find a trident tomorrow?" ~~Letters to Poseidon, Cees Nooteboom

    “We still carry this primal relationship to the Earth within our consciousness, even if we have long forgotten it. It is a primal recognition of the wonder, beauty, and divine nature of the Earth. It is a felt reverence for all that exists. Once we bring this foundational quality into our consciousness, we will be able to respond to our present man-made crisis from a place of balance, in which our actions will be grounded in an attitude of respect for all of life. This is the nature of real sustainability.”
    ~~Llewellyn Vaughan-Lee

    "We are the offspring of history, and must establish our own paths in this most diverse and interesting of conceivable universes--one indifferent to our suffering, and therefore offering us maximal freedom to thrive, or to fail, in our own chosen way."

    "Humans are not rational creatures. Now, logic and rationality are very helpful tools, but there’s also a place for embracing our subjectivity and thinking symbolically. Sometimes what our so-called higher thinking can’t or won’t see, our older, more primitive intuition will." John Beckett

    My friend has the same problem. She had to take anti depressants with her bc pills. So she thought the nuvaring would be better since it's a lower dose of hormones. She's just having the hardest time with contraception. She gets alot of constant bleeding that just never really stops. She gets her period. Then she sorta mimics me then right after me...

    Oddly with my heart and Diabetes I pretty much can't take any bc.
