Birth Control Advice?


I didnt know what forum to put this in. (I apologise if it is in the wrong forum)

I was wondering how those on birth control learnt to trust it. I honestly dont and I take it at the same time everyday yet I still question its ability even though it has worked before with me.

Im a very anxious person in general and I usually trust medicine but the birth control there is something about it which makes me uneasy.

I would use condoms to eliminate any fear but even with lube it really hurts and tears down there.
So we end up using birth control and the pull out method as semen burns down there and again the lack of trust with said birth control.

Anyone else go through questioning their birth controls ability?

I haven't questioned mine but it's probably because I can't get pregnant . I'm on it to help with symptoms of PCOS.
I know women on it and they don't question it but everyone is different . Semen burns you ? That's not good :( do you have some sort of allergy ?

I have been on the pill for many many years...I always trusted it and took it exactly on time...never had an issue with a "whoops". I haven't been on birth control pills for over 3 years after my son was born. I just don't like any more drugs in my system anymore since I've been on them since I was 16. Condoms work for us, and has worked just fine.. Maybe he's semen is on the slightly acidic side??

I have been on it for 12 years and never had an issue. You need to have caution for the first 3 months as it takes that long to fully work. But make sure not to make birth control your only form of protection!

I just had the iud put in and I love it!! It gave me cramps the first few days but now I feel nothing and I don't need to remember to take a pill everyday.

I used to be on the pill and ended up still getting pregnant.

As long as you are taking your birth control pill exactly as directed, you should be covered. If taken correctly, birth control pills are up to 99.9% effective.

Using the pull out method in addition to your birth control pills means your chances of getting pregnant are very slim. This is a good call if you don't totally trust the pill - definitely lowers your chances of getting pregnant if he doesn't ejaculate in you! If you're still worried, avoid sex midway through your cycle, as that is the time you are most likely to ovulate (should that happen while you're on the pill)

I was on the pill for 14 years and never once had a "whoops". Three months after I went off the pill (trying for a baby) I got pregnant.

If taken correctly, the pill is very effective. I hope you're able to put your mind at ease to fully enjoy sex with your partner without worrying :)

Popping in on this thread just to say, Ladies be careful if you take the injection and have mental illness. Your doctor might not say anything (mine at the time didn't), but it can cause big problems. I have depression and anxiety and at the time it made me have HUGE mood swings and scream at my husband all the time (I have never been a very angry person).

To the original poster, with those combination of methods there's no need to worry it's a tiny, tiny chance. Just make sure to use the pill and methods as directed! If you are starting to feel anxious all the time, consider talking to your doc to put your mind at ease.
