Birth Control Question

Misty - posted on 10/09/2012 ( 1 mom has responded )




I just turned 20 years old today. I have 3 daughters, ages 28 months, 16 months, and 3 weeks. I was on the pill, but I always forget to take them. I go at the end of October for my PP visit. I was breastfeeding but now its more formula than anything, but do occasionally breastfeed.

What are some birth control methods that worked for you? Any bad symptoms that you are going through?

Abstinence works. If I had 3 kids and I was only 20, I'd consider that a very viable alternative. Firstly, breastfeeding is NOT a form of birth control. Secondly, if you DO decide to continue to have sex, you need to consider more than one method of birth control. If you can't be responsible enough to take your pills regularly, talk to your doctor about alternatives that may work for you, AND use condoms as well. Two types of birth control is better than one.
