So I’ve wanted to do this post for a while as over my time in the blogging world I have read a few blog posts from lady bloggers talking about there experience with contraception. And I have really enjoyed reading them! Maybe because I am nosey? But I think it is so good to talk about any subject that comes with a taboo and isn’t a dinner table convocation. So if your one of those ladies thanks for the inspiration!!
Me, Chloe, right here and right now I cant think of anything worse then getting pregnant! I bow down to the women my age and younger who can raise a mini human!! But personally I really don’t think I could do it! Not now! Not yet! I can hardly sort myself out let alone a tiny little life. This being so I think it’s so important to talk about here are a few little things I’ve been thinking about.
- Talk about it… And by this I mean to your partner or thing of the moment or even a friend. I know its a hushed subject between couples for some strange reason but it’s a good convocation to have. It means your both on the same page and you can both be happy about what you both want. It may be a bit awkward especially if it’s a ne night stand situation but I think it’s a very good convo to have.
- Horror Stories… I’m sure everyone has heard them!! Oh that gives you blood clots or don’t take that I was really sick or things like my friends, sisters brothers girlfriend got the coil and it damaged her insides. Yes on very rare occasions do problems occur but on the whole I think most people are ok! Just don’t let stories put you off picking something that could work for you! (Which leads me onto my next point).
- What suits you… There are so many different types of pills, gadgets and things that can do the job of no babies!! For me I’m on the pill and have been since I was around 16, firstly to just control my periods and now for contraception. I also use condoms just to be extra safe!! I was rubbish at rembering to take my pill before I got in a relationship(naughty I know) but I know have a reminder set up on my phone that works for me. I have friends on the implant so it’s whatever works for you!
So there you go if you take any moral from this blog post please let it be ‘just talk about it’ (I think that’s a good moral to follow in life with most things anyway). But especially with this one.
Thanks for taking a look! Let me know what your opinions are.
