    Misinformation...
    Birth control has an abundance of positive side affects for many women and it regulates cycles (I used to have a cycle once every 3 months now I am regular as clock work). Not to mention it significantly reduces the risk of cervical cancer I think it was as high as reducing it by 60% if I recall correctly.
    Well I think it works differently for different women.. My ex gf's period cycle was messed up after going on the pill though.

    I don't understand why people have sex without anything to stop pregnancy if they don't want to have a child it's quite silly. I think people should stop complaining if they get a female pregnant or get pregnant. I don't believe in "accidental" pregnancy as they chose to have unprotected sex.
    its quite simple. they are idiots.
    they spread disease and have unwanted badly raised children.

    they are people so irresponsible they make the choice of "it kinda feels better" when they run the risk of dieing slowly from hiv or having a child.

    they also probably run the risk of spreading it because most of these same idiots are too cowardly to get themselves checked out.

    It can take about three months for it to become controlled when you first go on the pill. After that it should be completely fine. I originally started on the contraceptive pill for the purposes of controlling my cycle. It improved my quality of life considerably.

    I'm going to go ahead an assume she only tried one of the many available types of hormonal pills. Every woman is different and can react differently to hormonal changes, that is why there are many different types of pill. While she may not have reacted well to the combined pill (oestrogen and progesterone) she may very well have had positive effect from the minipill (progesterone only).
    Any decent sexual health nurse will describe all the different types of birth control in full and any of the positive or negative side affects that can occur and what you can do if the negatives happen (which is usually try a different type of pill).

    Yep, it takes 6 months+ to get out of her system. Very inconvenient. Also, if she's ill at the time of sex without condoms, then contraceptive pills might not work anyway.
    I think it can take up to 3 months for the hormones in the pill to fully leave your system, this does not however mean it takes 3 months before you can get pregnant, in fact it only take 2 missed pills for that to become possible. What it means by 3 months to leave your system is that it takes (up to) that long for the woman's hormone cycle to regulate itself back to normal levels (though her levels once missing two pills are not subnormal enough to stop her getting pregnant)

    Also yes that is correct about being ill, though there is a very detailed and informative instruction packet that comes with pills that tells you what to do in these instances for mine it states that if I have vomited within 4 hours of taking the pill then I must take another and if I have had diarrhoea within 6 hours of taking the pill to take another and to use extra protection such as condoms if symptoms persist after having taken the back up pills.

    She might have been on the mini pill; that can cause irregular bleeding. I know someone who had periods which lasted six weeks when she was on that :eek:

    No-one's telling you 'all women should' but if you care as a woman yourself for minimising the chance of becoming pregnant then you'd be smart enough to take them considering you have no side-effects. And to see for them, you'd need to try out the pills in first place.

    It's like guys asking ''why should I wear a condom if it doesn't make sex pleasurable for me as it would without it?'' -- emm STDs/STIs etc??

    I personally have tried them but came off due to the side effects. The same has happened to several people I know also.
    If you read my other posts- I'm not exactly condoning the fact that some people just have unprotected sex- but I'm not stupid enough to ignore the fact it happens due to people being in the heat of the moment and accidents do happen.

    Why indeed. And why do these selfish people then expect the rest of us to pay for their baby?

    Unprotected sex? Yes. Accidental babies? No.

    Haven't you heard of the morning after pill? Abortions?

    I think it's inconsiderate to not use a condom and do you really want STDs/STIs? People just don't look at the bigger picture.
    Good bloody comment. I hope all these lads who are whining about how crap a condom feels get penis warts and their willies fall off

    I never said accidental babies? If by baby you mean foetus then yes, that can happen from unprotected sex.
    I have heard of both of them- you obviously haven't read my other posts.

    Neg me, don't care, the MAIN purpose of sex is reproduction so why be surprised if you fall pregnant if on or off contraception? If you know you're not ready for a child don't have sex simple.

    One of the main purposes. It's also used for pleasure, stress relief, socialising, weight loss etc.

    Why should a woman have to put chemicals into her body that can cause bad side-effects and can actually even alter her body?



    If it's the heat of the moment then most likely people won't be able to look past the '15 minutes of pleasure' at all- it's easier to say that than to actually do it. Noone should be sterilised.
    Because preventing a pregnancy is not just the role of the man, women should be trying to prevent it just as much as men do.

    Yeah but when you're looking through this thread and others like it, you see people mentioning that condoms are awful and they'd rather she was just on the pill, so women seem to be doing more than men in these situations.

    She doesn't - she could use a diaphragm instead if she wants, although they're less effective.
