I'm pregnant at the moment, due end of the month but I've been stressing about getting on birth control after I have the baby. This is my 2nd baby, and I do not want anymore! (right now anyway, I've got a 10 month old and a newborn coming, my hands are full.) I feel to young to get my tubes tied, i'm only 20, I think you gotta be 21 to tie your tubes anyway.
Me and my husband are discussing my options, in the end I know its my choice about what I wanna do but as it is, He doesn't want me on anything and says he'll use condoms, I however am scared I'll get pregnant again and am considering some form of birth control. I don't really like the mood swings and weight gain either, if I wasn't having sex constantly I'd say no to it all together. I'm not even gonna consider the depot shot (may be spelled wrong) I've heard one to many lovely stories, I tried the pill once for one week, and my boobs were so ridiculously tender I bawled for days. I'm on the fence I don't know what to do, I can't handle another 9 months of being pregnant. I can't do it. The babys are fine its the pregnant I can't stand, the pain the pressure the emotional rollacoaster, I dont know what to do.
Should I try the pill again?
Does the patch work pretty good?
or if I stick with condoms will I be ok?
No insertions either. If it matters I had a overactive thyroid, thats been fixed, so as of now its normal, but i'm also afraid that any form of birth control may throw my thyroid outta wack. Is that possible?? Any input would be great!?
