30 Bananas a Day!

Are the possible side effects worth it? It's obviously not natural, but how safe/accurate is natural family planning? Thinking about not taking it anymore, but I definitely don't want kids at this point in my life.

p.s. I'm not judging parents who abort children as im sure its not easy to make that decision.

Withdrawal only works when their is no residue sperm in the penis. If a couple has sex twice in an hour the percentage chance of preg. is 20%  unless the male pees a few times. This clears the sperm from the initial ejaculation. If the couple has sex without this clearing, the sperm can be picked up in the pre-cum. The pre-cum is from an entirely different gland and contains no sperm. 

The chances of perforation (happens at time of insertion) is 1 in 1000.  That's the same risk of having a child with Down Syndrome if you conceive between the ages of 30 and 35.  No one's telling women that age not to have babies.  It's not a risk I would place too much importance on, especially compared to the advantages.

I would stay away from birth control pills. I see many ads on TV for women who suffered serious life threatening side effects from taking them. Some women have mild side effects but the long term effects are unknown. I worked with a woman who was a smoker and when she hit a certain age, I want to say, 35-39, they refused to prescribe them. The adverse health risks were too high. I also watched a study that showed that women who use birth control like the pill, are attracted to the same chemical make-up in men. So it's basically throwing you off balance and it is similar to inbreeding. I was on the pill for a few years and never again. Too toxic.

They made me seriously depressed and after I stopped taking them (I tried different ones) the depression didn't go away so quickly because they seriously mess with your hormones :/ They also made me feel sick each day and I kept panicking about forgetting to take them or leaving them home when travelling... so annoying!

I have a copper chain (not a spiral) now, which is softer and doesn't cause too many problems, though periods are longer and a little more painful now. It's as safe as the pill, though, so I still prefer it over Natural Family Planning right now, and a hundred times over the pill. It's called GyneFix and is an improvement to the normal copper IUD because it's saver & hurts less, but I don't know if it's available in every country (especially outside europe).

Btw, random fact: The excessive hormones in the pill get eliminated and pollute our sewage, which is actually why some fishes suffer from "feminization" or so.

I was on the pill for about 10 years. Had no problems getting my cycle on it. I went of of it and I could not get my cycle to be regular. That was about 7 years ago and it is still irregular, which is part of why I am trying 811. When I tried to get pregnant I couldn't and ended up doing fertility treatments for both of my sons. I'm not sure if the pill played a part in all of this, but I suspect it did.

being in the pill was the most depressing episode of my life. i'm a super optimistic/happy person but when i went on the pill it totally transformed me. and i was only on it for a month. i cried everyday that month and for the next 3 months after because it fucked with my hormones. i know every pill isn't a match for everyone, and my doctor recommended that i try a different one, but it's been about a year since then and i'm afraid a different brand might have the same effect, and it's soo not worth it. so now i rely on condoms, and the occasional morning after pill.
