My 18 year-old daughter has been in a long-term relationship for several years and has recently become sexually active. She and her boyfriend are using condoms but she wants something additional as she is trying to be very responsible.
She and I have been researching the options and we are both feeling very uncomfortable with all of the side effects of the various methods. I feel strongly in support of her taking responsibility for her sexual health but can't seem to find a contraceptive method that feels comfortable to me to recommend to my child. I've raised her with no vaccinations, no pharmaceuticals, organic and chemical-free eating and living for her entire life... breastfed her for over four years. So I don't want to start pumping chemicals and hormone-disrupters into her now, but I also do not want her to risk unwanted pregnancy.
I would like to hear from other natural-living women what you've found to be the least-toxic method(s) of contraception. Please share your advice and experience but not debate. Thank you.
