Should have never had it put in!

I'm so glad I did that. I was afraid it was going to be as bad as having it put in but apparently my body didn't mind getting rid of it. A tiny twinge and it was gone.
I am once again using the Vitamin C treatment for the BV that was just relentless while I had the IUD, and hopefully now that it's out I can treat successfully again.
I asked the OB/Gyn if she had any other suggestions for birth control, I am just amazed at how the medical community is trained to push the unnatural and discount the natural - even in the literature.
She said the best she could do without the use of hormones would be other barrier methods, condoms or diaphragm. I had to ask about natural family planning and she really tried to dissuade me from using it. She gave me some literature on it which basically said it was "best guessing" and discounted it also.
I haven't personally tried it but it seems like they would put more effort into the knowledge, education and technology to promote and continue this wisdom to young women rather than the obvious favor they give to "the pill" and other dangerous practices. It's a shame, really, that this information and wisdom is being lost through the generations. I know there are also combinations of certain herbs that inhibit pregnancy, I think some are poisonous or dangerous though, but not all. I know that Vitamin C is one and Hops is another but I'm sure someone could come up with a safe and effective method of natural contraception with just a little knowledge and effort.
I'll have to do some more reading, I have several herb and aromatherapy books, maybe I can create my own :) That would really be risky at this point but it would be kind of fun too.
Maybe one day ...
