What to consider when choosing a type of birth control

Filed under: Uncategorized — Ashlynn @ 9:48 am

Choosing birth control isn’t only about preventing pregnancy it’s also about making the right decision for yourself and your lifestyle. If you don’t like having to remember to take the Pill everyday you may want to think about the IUD or NuvaRing. Or try combining a condom with spermicide for a hormone-free, but just as effective, form of birth control. Additionally, if you know you do not want children, permanent methods such as tubal ligation and sterilization are available.

Remember to choose methods that fit your goals, values, desires, and lifestyle.

As with every prescription drug there are health risks. You have to decide if your health is ready to accept the use of birth control or not. In some circumstances hormonal birth control may not be an option for you.

  • If you are over 35 and smoke more than 15 cigarettes a day.
  • If you have any history of heart disease, liver, diabetes and high blood pressure.
  • If you are or suspect you are pregnant.
  • If you are breast feeding and/or are less than 6 weeks postpartum.
  • If you have breast cancer, history of breast cancer or an abnormal growth in the breast.
  • If you have a history of blood clotting problems.
  • If you have cancer or history of cancer of the reproductive organs.
  • If you have unexplained vaginal bleeding.
  • If you have active liver disease or a history of liver tumors.

You should be aware about the benefits and side effects of all birth control methods. Learn the details by speaking with a healthcare professional. Most types of birth control are 99% successful in preventing pregnancy as long as you use them consistently and correctly.

  1. My girlfriend has been having problems with her period and her doctor has put her on birth control in hopes of getting her back on a normal cycle. The problem is, the birth control is making her feel really nauseous all the time. She’s tried switching the kind she’s taking and has recently been put on a lower dosage – but she still feels sick. Is there anything we can do to help her feel better? Foods she can be eating? Vitamins she can be taking? Exercises? Any tricks to help her alleviate some of the misery? (We’re a gay couple and neither of us have any prior experience with usage of the pill.)

  2. Nausea is a common side effect of birth control when first starting, but fortunately it subsides over time (I was hit with it for about a month before I started to feel better, now everything’s great.) Your girlfriend can try taking the Pill before she goes to bed, that way she can sleep through the nausea. Exercising may take her mind off of it for a bit. As for foods or vitamins I haven’t heard of anything. Unfortunately this is something she will have to wait out. If the nausea doesn’t subside over time I would see your healthcare professional again.

  3. I am a 49 yr. old woman, divorced and am interested in birth control methods, other than condoms and messy spermicide gels. My partner and I are getting HIV tested, but once the results are known, would like to have sex without protection. We do not live together, so I don’t know if the pill is what I want or safe at this point of my life. I don’t want to stop the menopause process, since I am pre-menopausal. Any suggestions? Thanks

  4. Dear Joni,You should definitely check with your doctor to see which method is the best for you. You do not necessarily have to go on the pill if you don't want to. There are other birth control methods such as the Depo Provera Shot, Mirena IUD, the Ortho Evra Patch, the Nuva Ring, etc.
