For Women Only : What is the most effective non-hormonal birth control?
I really want to come off the pill but am afraid of getting pregnant!!!
The pill is great. It cleared up my acne and it makes me more curvy. I also have never gotten pregnant and can have sex most of the month.
However I feel fat all the time and I have put on 10 pounds since on it even though I eat very healthily. I also get depressed alot and I have cellulite although I never did before.
I want to get off this stuff.
I have been doing alot of reading on the internet and realised I am not alone and that my symptoms has to do with this pill.
I have read too many horror stories , including of women getting blood clots and dying.
I want to be happy with my body again and healthy.
Please give some advice.
Are any of you out there not using hormonal birth control and have never gotten pregnant unless you wanted to?
I don’t like condoms. Any other alternatives with no side effects ?
