I love FAM! I love that for at least a week or so out of the cycle we can have worry-free sex. I love that.
That being said, did anyone see the latest Private Practice? They had a serious Jewish couple who had 6 children, the parents were exhausted and didn't want to have anymore kids right then and there, but they believe God doesn't want couples to prohibit and abstinence isn't an option. The drs basically told the mother to take 'these pills, which will boost your iron levels, among other things". The mother knew what they were and basically agreed to lie to her husband. At one point in the deliberation about BC they said "I wish there was something we could give her that wasn't hormonal and not considered birth control!" I shouted at the TV "Hello FAM!" They didn't even bring it up, not even the rhythm method.
Does anyone else get 'you are stupid' looks from drs and nurses when you tell them that's what you are using? It's like they expect to see you back soon because of user failure. That irritates me. This stuff works! I wish more of the medical community would see that.
I avoid the GYN practice here and just get all my stuff done at my GP's office because I don't want to have to continue to explain myself and refuse BC. And good grief if I even suggest that I know when I ovulated!
