As women, making the decision to have kids is an extremely personal choice, and that decision is in your hands. I'm in my late 20's and I've made the choice to put kiddos on hold because my health is still in a place that, quite frankly, needs a lot of care and attention. Having and taking medications that have the potential to cause birth defects is one reason I use a long acting reversible contraception.
My health is really important to me, but so is the health of any future children my husband and I decide to have. I love my long acting reversible contraception because it works with my body, so i don't have to remember to take another pill, and it fits in with my lifestyle. Once it's done, my body goes back to normal, and we can work on trying!
In the next few weeks here in this community, I'm going to talk about why birth control ISN'T a taboo topic, how to talk about the topic to friends, what the benefits of different types of contraception are, and how to feel autonomy over your body. Birth control seems like a scary thing to talk about, but it's totally normal, and we're going to talk about it comfortably! I even wrote a blog about it - visit the link in my bio!
