I had a talk with my mom the other night, like a day or so after I went for my ultrasound. The attitude she gave upset me a little and made me feel like she just wasnt hearing me at all.
The background: I am now 21. I am in my 6 1/2 month of my 6th pregnancy. I had 2 miscarages before I was 16. I gave birth to Vicky when I was 17. I had an abortion at 18. And then gave birth to Nick at 19. So this makes 6...
I have been on almost all ortho-tri cycle hormones and had such awful side effects I stopped. I got pregnant with ortho-tri twice. I have used the ring. I was on the Depo shot with this pregnancy and somehow still got pregnant. I have had an IUD. I used to use condoms, but no longer do.
My mom and I got into it because 1. she tried to tell me I just wasnt being safe. That it really just must be me useing birth control wrong and that is why I keep getting pregnant. Then 2. she tried to say I should just get "my reproductive issues under check once and for all with my tubes being cut."
I dont want my tubes cut! I am only 21, what if next year or 10 years from now I want to have a forth? What then? Why should I cut my tubes and make a very perment situation for myself? (The reversal is just as much money as having it done, not that I could afford either, really.)
So now I feel a little hurt and upset about being told what to do with my body and wht should be done with my body...
So, My question is has anybody used non-hormonal birth control that really worked and that they liked? Your answers will be most helpful, thank you.
