Warning for guys upfront this is one you may not want to read. I am sure it is probably way off topic of things you want to think or read about.

Ok ladies I really hope you don’t mind answering this question for me. As I am really trying to decide what I should do and learn the pros and cons of all my options out there. I know you can research them online and ask your doctor. But that only tells you so much. I would like to hear from real people who have are using them.

If you are comfortable with leaving your answers in the comment area that is great this way others will have answers too. If not that is fine also if you would like to give your comments but not for everyone to see I understand 100%. You can email me your answer to the asingleparentslife email. Also all comments have to be approved before they are posted for others to see so if you trust that you can just state that you would rather your comment not be approved for all to see. I respect your wishes either way.

Ok here is my questions for you all…………………………………..

1. Are you or have you take any of the falling 3 pills?

A.  Seasonale     B.  Seasonique     C.   Lybrel

2.Why did you like/dislike them?

3. What other forms of birth control have you used besides this?

4. How did you like them compared to other forms you have used?

5. What side effects did you have from them?

6. How long did the side effects last?

I was on the pill when I got pregnant with my first almost 9 years ago. I took it every day same time all the time like they say and still got pregnant. It made me moody and sick some for about the first month. After that I don’t think it was to bad maybe once in a while. Not wanting to chance it with the pill again after I had my daughter I tried the patch that they just came out with. I really didn’t like it. I liked the idea and not having to take a pill every day it was great. But I felt sick all the time I was moody and sick all the time. Plus it never wanted to stay on for the full 5 to 7 days or what ever. The sticky stuff wasn’t that great. They say you can swim or take a bath with it and you really couldn’t. I really didn’t have to worry about getting pregnant because I could careless if we had sex or not. The moodiness could have been partly from hormones and things from just having a baby and all that goes along with it. But I know the not wanting to have sex wasn’t because I was back to wanting and having sex 3 weeks after I had her. Hell I was wanting it before that but that was the soonest I could lol. I will not take the shots at all. I have read to many bad things about them and know to many people who got them and had problems. They I know are not an option for me. I tried the ring for a short time also but it made me feel like the patch did. I finally just gave up and went back to condoms who never failed me unless I didn’t use them. Well until this baby and I really believe that I got pregnant this time from one of the times we didn’t use anything or that he did something to the condoms before he put them on. Just by the way he acted and things plus I have never had as many problems with condoms as I had when I was with him. In 9 years of using them.

I know pretty much for sure this is my last baby. I am thinking I want to maybe go back to something more than condoms. Just so I don’t have to worry about it all the time. I have a little while to think about it but figure I would start doing research now and getting opinions. I like these too because you don’t have your monthly friend every month. That would be nice.

Again thank you in advance for reading this and taking the time to answer. It is greatly appreciated as I don’t really know anyone who is on any forms of birth control. That might be why everyone I know has 3 to 6 kids lol.
