Control Your Birth Control

We should all know by now that pulling out is NOT EFFECTIVE! *Raising my hand*
And there are far more effective methods of birth control.

It is important to realize that, just like our lives, birth control is NOT a one size fits all. What works for one or several of your girlfriends may not work for you and vise versa.
When choosing a birth control you need to ensure that it is right for your body, life style and also need to consider the amount of "time" it will take out of your day to take/switch your birth control.

Here is an insightful video I found on YouTube about the varieties of birth control and methods.

PLEASE LADIES DO NOT say you are not going to get on birth control because:
  • It is too expensive 
    • A baby is WAY more expensive even BEFORE birth let alone after birth. 
  • I don't like the way it makes me feel
    • With so many options out there try another one.
    • Remember how you felt throughout your pregnancy? All the cramps, "morning sickness", headaches and everything else in between? Do you want to feel like that again while already taking care of another child... HELL NO. So if your birth control gives you a headache or makes you gain weight deal with it. These are only temporary and are both completely in your control.
Both of these things are ridiculous excuses for reasons to not do your research and get on birth control.
Other sites with more information on birth control are Planned Parenthood.org and Web MD.com.
Think about all the research and time you put into planning the perfect baby shower or name for your unborn child. Now put that much effort into LIFE changing research.

Thank you for reading :)
