  • Help! I need advise

    I'm 24 & just got married. I dont want to have a baby yet. So I decided to just take birth control pills but Im wondering the side effects if I'll start taking it. Is there a possibility that I cant get pregnant in the future?
    Could anyone help me....

  • well there are positive and negative side effects,
    the negative ones are weight gain and the fact that if you are already in a risk category for thrombosis (for example because you are overweight or a smoker, or you have varicose veins), that risk will be slightly increased.


    Positive side effect are that your skin will get better, your body hair will be reduced, and your breasts might get bigger (which is a positive thing for most women).

    But these side effects can be reduced if you get a lighter version of the pill.

    And if you decide that you do want to get pregnant, you just stop taking the pill and you can already get pregnant after the first cycle.

    • Thank you for the advise... yes I do have varicouse veins thats why Im hesitating to use birth control pills.
      My husband & I are thinking a lot of birth control options, we're wondering if using a fertility monitor to predict ovulation time & abstaining during that time if its an effective form of birth control?
