  2. Family Planning
    Hi all!<br> I had a question about the mini pill. I started it back in January, I have gotten regular periods since I started, I always get it in the last week of my pills. I was due a week ago for my period but still haven't gotten it. I had missed a pill at the beginning of the pack and I...

    <p>I've been fitted for a diaphragm by a midwife but am finding it impossible to find a pharmacy in my area that stocks them. They are all saying that they've been discontinued. Now that I finally found someone to fit me, I really want to start using it!</p> <p> </p> <p>Does anyone have...
  4. Family Planning
    I haven't been on bc pills in years. Used to use the ladycomp with condoms. Then have up ladycomp out of fear of irregular cycles and non accuracy as I get older (36 soon). I hate condoms, I hate tracking my cycle, I won't use an iud (bad experience with paragard years ago). I do have a fibroid...

    <p>I'm 19 years old, and I want to be a mother. Not right now, heavens no. I don't want to be a teen mom, maybe when I'm 23 or so. I enjoy reading parenting magazines, learning parenting stuff, looking up stuff online, etc. I want to be a little bit prepared once I decide to become a mom. I...

  10. Family Planning
    <p>So, attempted an mirena insertion today, and...no dice.  After a good bit of poking & prodding, the NP declared my cervix simply too tight to get the IUD in:(  I'd gone to Planned Parenthood b/c it seemed SO much more expedient than the 2 month long process at my regular GYN because of...

    <p>I wanted to get feedback on either of these birth control methods. My daughter is 3.5 and we've decided that we don't want kids for now... prefer these methods because they're hormone free. Thanks!</p>

  17. Family Planning
    Hi! Me and my guy were having sex recently and the question has arisen that I could have gotten pregnant. I'm on Mononessa, taking antibiotics at the time, and though he had a condom on....it broke. It's still too early to test yet. So, I'm wondering about how likely it is that I could have...

    <div>DH and I are trying to decide what to do for birth control now. Our DD is nearly 3 and DS is nearly 6 mo. I'm 36, DH is 42.
