I absolutely hated oral contraceptives, they immediately changed my mood, my weight, and my libido was so high I couldn't stand myself. But that was years and years ago when there weren' to many to choose from. I have been "natural" for the past 15 yrs.
Still, no one could force me to take oral contraceptives.
I love the NR but still may just use up the 3 I have then back to normal, the $$$ cost was remarkably high
But, I refuse to be henpecked and obviously when I told the first ignorant poster (who cited such menial things as vaginal irritation instead of the actual dangerous side effects) that I had read about it thouroughly,
I did not need further chiding and ragging from folks telling me what to put or not put in my vagina.
That doesn't work on children, and it doesn't work on adults. Presenting facts as they are without judgment or preaching= more effective.
Have a good day, I appreciate your concern, incis. I understand it is not a good thing. Obviously!
