Stranger Things: The Birth Control Talk

So you’re thinking about birth control. There are lots of factors to take into consideration before moving forward. I remember being where you are and I was terrified. I didn’t really have anyone that I felt comfortable enough talking to , mainly because my mom had me at 19.So my family just had this notion that I was going to follow in her unprepared footsteps. Wrong. I’m 27 and still don’t have any children. So take that,take that. But all games aside, the journey you’re preparing to embark on is not an easy one, but you are smart and you’ll get through it. I’m here to help in whatever way I can.

Firstly, I want to congratulate you for being responsible and recognizing that motherhood isn’t where you want to be right now. So if no one is proud of you Rie is. One day we’ll talk about making sure that the guy you decide to give your body to actually cares about you before engaging in any intimate activity with him. But, that’s another story for another day. I think we talk about relationships enough for you all to be sort of knowledgeable in that area anyway. Moving forward, there are several methods of BC. Pills, shots, IUD, condoms and of course abstinence. But y’all know I’m gone keep it funky with you. I am currently on the pill , and I actually don’t have man complaints. I think it has kicked up my appetite, so I’m eating a little– ok a lot more, which made me gain weight. But other than that it’s pretty simple. I set an alarm on my phone that reminds me to take it at the same time.

Secondly, make sure that this is for sure something you want to do. If you are blessed with someone experienced and a little older than you, take the initiative to be vocal about your wants and concerns. It may be scary and embarrassing at first, but you’ll thank yourself for it later. Have that same person recommend a OBGYN or a female doctor for you and walk you through the process. Birth control has some sketchy side effects and you would do yourself a favor knowing what they are and how they could effect you. Different hormones and chemical break downs, may help you make the best decision. Birth control has been known to stop bad cramps, clear acne prone skin and remove ovarian cysts.
