MIRENA BABY ALL THE WAY!!!!!!!! I would suggest it to anyone. Its the easiest birth control possible and no more periods. It makes sense and I feel the same about getting pregnant again right now because I had preeclampsia and if I get pregnant again I would be on bed rest for probably the whole time.

i would suggest getting an iud they are much safer and more preventative, less to worry about because if you forget to take that pill one day or two you could definitley get pregnant and with the iud i don't even have my period! hope this helped let me knw!

I do the same thing.

My birth control lists tetracycline antibiotics as one of the risky medication interactions. Now I'm ridiculously paranoid, i've taken that stupid pill every night at the same dumb time. It makes me extremely moody. And the antibiotic I was on was NOT tetracycline, but it still goes through my head..... not the correct antibiotic... but did they tell us it was all antibiotics? would today be a fertile day? oh my god I'll hang myself if there are two of them hating me and yanking my hair....

I feel you.

Hello, i would defiantly go see your GP, he/she will be able to help alleviate your fears and worries about this issue...its normal to think about it once in a while but not late at night, all those late nights will eventually affect the way you function during the day not to mention your relation ship with your husband, its your right to have only one child and society puts pressure on us all to have the perfect family with 2.5 kids, talking your worries over with your with your GP will defiantly help...

Have you thought of getting an IUD? It's less drastic than fixingand much safer than the pill but best of all, if you get a certain IUD, you could stop having your period altogether!

Its ok to be axious about it. I get that way too sometimes. I am not on birth control and I'm feeling pretty confident about using natural family planning. You just calculate when you are ovulating and you just don't have sex around that time. It is easy and it has worked for us for 6 months. but if you are on birth control it is more preventative than you think. Not to mention when you do get pregnant it is a gift from god and he never gives you anything you can't handle.

hi. i think your thinking about this far too much. you need to chat to your doctor about how you feel and if there is anything else you can do to prevent you getting pregnant. if you take the pill and use a condom or have the coil it would be a complete miracle if you got pregnant. please spend less time worrying about what could happen (and will not happen) and more time thinking about how lucky you are to have a lovely little girl. please see you gp, they will put your mind a rest. good luck. marianne

I don't think that's normal. I mean it's 1 thing to think about it or worry but if it is consumeing your life you might should talk to a dr. Do you worry alot about other things too? I mean is worrying normal for you?
