Ok, so heres the deal. My boyfriend and I have been dating for sometime and I was originally on the pill. But after being on it for a while I noticed a few adverse side effects that I had noticed in the past (pre-conception of my 2 year old) I noticed that after awhile on Alesse I start to gain weight, become very moody and well both are a big issue for me. We have been talking for sometime about another pregnancy, and have decided that we'll try this september. Unfortunetly we both dislike condoms, I refuse to go back on the pill. (Last time I gained 25 lbs in 1.5 months, it was insane) and I was willing to try the Mirena but have backed down from that idea, because I'll only be on B/C for such a short time. Does anyone have any ideas/ options of temporary birth control that will not hinder our chances of trying in 6 months?
