Hormones Don't Work For Me

Posted by: Alexine on Thu Oct 4, 2007

My husband and I use withdrawal for birth control. We were using condoms until recently because I can't take hormones. I'm estrogen dominant to begin with and I tried every low dose on the market (they all made me feel gross or gain weight). So we take the risk of getting pregnant each month but we are at the point in our lives that when it happens its ok. The pros are you're not putting fake hormones in your body and messing with your natural cycle and the con is that you never know if you might be pregnant. Every month is a waiting game. I might get a copper IUD after I have my 1st kid and then once we have our 2nd he's getting snipped. I'm happy to say it was his ides since I have to go through child birth he volunteered. Good luck to anyone in the same boat!
