I've quit the pill. Had enough of it frankly. I quit on March 7th. I've decided to use condoms and FAM (charting-a natural birth control method). Tried 3 different pills had too many side effects that made me miserable. Side effetcs: vaginal dryness, low sex drive, depression, moodiness, infections galore! (yeast & bacterial). I'd like to update everyone on how it goes. I figure it will help answer a lot of questions about it. I'm 21 and newly married. I've been on the pill for almost 2 yrs, since May 2008.
Idk how long it will take for things to return to normal, but I'll find out. As soon as my period ends I'll begin charting as according to the FAM Method described in Taking Charge of Your Fertility by Dr. Toni Weschler. Taking my temp orally each morning & checking consistency of cervical fluid.
I'll post later on how it goes...
