Private Parts

Tonight, it was a Red Scion. A sports car type. Yup again, I am at the library. This stupid ace math project is going to kill me.

I don't want to write about this. But I told you I would so I will.

Remember the private news? It's literal private news. As in, my privates. Wow. TMI.

The news is... I got my IUD out!

Which means;

WE'RE HAVING .................

Protected SEX!

lol. Again. TMI. But oh well. Thats what you get when you read my blog.

So anyway, this was decided (the getting the IUD out thing) because I was having some irregularity with it. I've had it for about 2 years and it was just not getting normal. (I had this one)

I'm not sure whether I will continue to advocate for it. But I loved it for a good reason. I didn't have to think about it! It was just there. Automatic birth control. Who wouldn't love that?

Well, it came time to have it out. And now i hate my life. It's been 3 days and I want it back. Not necessarily the IUD. But something to make me feel normal!

I don't want to give you too much gross information but I might anyway. I am bleeding like a freak. Gross. That's so gross.

I was really hoping to not to bc for awhile to just let my body 'heal' if you will, from the weirdness it's been through for the last FOREVER. However, I was thinking in the future and asked my doc to give me a perscription for some low dose bc. Looks like i'll be visiting Wal-greens tomorrow.

Many people think birth control is evil or something. And that makes me worried. In fact, when I grow up, I want to be an educator of people. On birth control and protected sex. I'm not an idiot and neither are kids these days. Of course i am an advocate for abstience but let's face it, it's not happening for the majority of teenagers. Therefore, I am going to travel the world and teach kids (even and especially LDS ones) about birth control and sex in general. We don't talk about it enough. Really. It's so true. That's another topic in itself.

I talked to my sis-in-law about natural bc. it seems like a lot of work. Is it worth it? What about the non hormone releasing IUD? Does anyone have experience with that? Give me some feedback ladies (and gents if you want!) What works for you? What doesn't work for you?

  2. Well here's a little TMI for you. I used the nuva ring for quite a while and loved it!! You only have to worry about it once a month and it adds a little something to the sex (in a good way ;). It also helps provide extra lubrication since the hormones are right in the vagina! Double nice! I've talked to friends who use the non hormonal IUD and they all really like it. I've not heard one complaint. Oh also be glad you're bleeding like crazy, because I barely bleed, like a slow leek FOREVER! Seriously I was spotting from Aug 20th to October 9TH!!! Ugh love being a girl!

  5. I'm not much help since most types of birth control (estrogen containing kinds) can be life threatening to me. So it's Depo for me. But not right now, it ran out in August, and I haven't gotten a new shot. I don't want to. I want to be free from all artificial hormones, and figure out what I'm like, what my cycle is like, without them! But, we are using the dreaded condoms. Yay. Thanks to breastfeeding, no period yet.

  6. After our fifth child, when we knew we were done, my husband joined the V team -- vasectomy. It was perfect for us. However, it is kind of an end-of-the-line choice.

    Before that, it was nothing but stress. One time without a condom that resulted in one child. A condom that broke resulting in another.

    And because of my PMDD I am so sensitive to hormonal changes that any bc pills made me either suicidal or homocidal.

    Good luck. Hope the bleeding stops soon. That sucks. Especially when you bleed out and have to soak and stain treat all your clothes. Sorry.
