Sticking with the Rhythm Method for Now
Having used the pill (very briefly), the patch, and most recently nuva ring, I decided to switch to the rhythm method primarily because of the real and potential side effects. For me, the libido suppression was real and the potential for weight gain was problematic. The weight gain bit was a big deal for me - though in retrospect there is no evidence that I gained alot of weight as a result of the hormones. In any case, 7 months to my wedding, I took my chances with the rhythm method and haven't bothered switcing back. Obviously, it doesn't help to always worry about whether I blew it this month or not, but given the fact that my husband and I will want a family in the next 2 years, I am somewhat comforted knowing that my body has been free of hormonal birth control for nearly 1 year. Right after I have 2 children, I'm all about a birth control method that can be in place for 5 years.
