I am officially back on the pill. I am not a big fan of any type of medications, and was never able to find the right BC that didn’t make me crazy, bloated, nauseous… Still I can’t take the anxiety every month when I am waiting for the flow. I have nightmares of walking down the aisle 9 months preggers. My mental and physical health will be interesting in the next month, and I am sure I am going to be a real treat. My co-workers are going to love me! Anyone else back on the pill!

I’ve had a crazy time finding the right BC pill too. I finally had to go on Yaz, because nothing else controlled my monthly nuttiness.

I’ve been on the pill for almost 10 years (yipes!) and I’ve probably been on about 9 pills in that time. One will work for awhile but I’ll develop some weird problem with it (night sweats were the WORST!). So I switch. I still freak out about getting preggers but I think that’s because part of me wants to…so weird. FI and I are currently debating me going off of it when we get married, we will see.
Funny thing is many people think we are knocked up b/c we are getting married 3 months after we got engaged–someone at work actually asked me if we picked that time so I woulnd’t be “showing” in my dress. I just laughed and said absolutely not but UGH! How rude.

I am, yuck. I was on a variety of shots and inserts before the doctor switched me back. I dislike taking it every night but it’s the only thing strong enough to hold back the force that is Aunt Flo for me.
I just had my first visit in 3 months and I was all kinds of a roller coaster. Boy i don’t miss those days. I’m so SANE when i’m on it 24/7.

I am a pill convert, now I use the ring. I have been on it for about 14 months now, no complaints. It is so much easier than a daily pill and I trust it a lot more.

The Yaz is not working out for me. It is weird because I was on it last year, and I was fine. Now I am jittery and short tempered. Any suggestions on a different Pill. I have already used the Nuvaring, and had zero sex drive and bad attitude.
