Nope. Although I don't take it anymore because the brand they had me on (Yaz, for my PMDD) gave me WICKED migraines every night. I've not gone back on since because signs point to that being the case with all BC for me. (Same thing happened to my mom at my age, that's a big one.)
Um heck no. Best thing ever invented as far as I am concerned eps for us college girls. Wild parties and what not can lead to unexpected sex and I am soooo happy I am on birth control. Plus I always know when I am going to get my period. Major bonus. For birth control all the way!!!!!
Personally, I'm against it. I think it's a way of trying to control nature.
HOWEVER, there are certain people who should use it (e.g. where one person has an STD and their partner doesn't). If others wanna use it, it's fine with me. I can't control what they do in their bedroom. I never will use it, however.
i think using birthcontrol and using it wisely is important for couples...t0 better plan their families..though i mean you can only plan so much cause nothing but abstinence is 100%...we have gotten into a problem however with women being on birth control for years, decades even...then suddenly wanting to have a baby and not being able to get pregant or carry a child to term...and more and more females are being encouraged to use birth control that severely limits theri periods which could have profound medical effects later on....children need to be born...in many countries the population is aging and less children are being born then the people who are dying..even in the United States, though we have huge imigration here which helps keep the population balanced...it is in teh devoping world where birth control methods are unknown or jsut starting to be used and the average age is much younger where the population is growing fast and will continue to streesing the environments there more then they are already....so be wise, be informed, be careful, limit your activity, and plan before ever even thinking of having sex..and if you never want children there are things you can do to ensure that you dont for males and females, soem of which can be reversed if you at soem later date change your mind..but there are also alwasy orphans needing a good home too.
