    Just do it. He's being retarded. No sane man wishes for any woman to be without non condom based contraception.

    I don't think that it is a good idea to go on the pill. God knows what these contraceptive pills have in them. People are too ready to pop pills without knowing the risks. Plus, there is a chance you'll mess up when taking them and become pregnant.

    If it's something you'd feel better taking than just using condoms then do it.

    Turn it around: be unreasonable and refuse to use condoms. If he really doesn't want you to get pregnant, he'll see your side more clearly.

    I think it's really sweet that your boyfriend is so concerned about this. I'm sure there are lots of men who wouldn't give a crap about what their girlfriends did for contraception - as long as she didn't get pregnant. Many others would welcome their girlfriend going on the pill because of potentially better sex, more spontinaeity, not having to fork out for condoms - you get the idea - but not actually give a thought to the side effects, some very serious, that women can experience on the pill. I think it really shows that he cares about you and your welfare rather than just seeing you as, sorry to put it bluntly, a sexual object. If you personally want to go on the pill and your GP gives it all the go ahead, sit down with him, talk about it and reassure him.
    Or he doesn't want her to become a fat *****.

    definitely tell him you are pregnant and ask him if he will support you and the baby.
    then see his reaction.
    If it's not good then it's time to find a new boyfriend.

    Well tough! It's your body, your choice, not his in the slightest. What a thing for him to say- as if he has any say in the matter at all (I don't know, are you giving him a say?).

    Use a different form of contraception with either no or few?

    The IUD has no hormones whatsoever (the Mirena coil has localised hormones, the IUD has none), and doesn't need to be replaced for years and years - you can just forget about it (though you should check it every so often, but that's nothing really). He shouldn't have a problem with it.

    I'd sit down and talk with him, explain that you want to go on because it's much more effective as contraception, also there are great side effects regarding periods for the majority of people.

    Also, maybe agree to make it a trial? Like, remind him that if it's having negative effects you can stop taking it straight away and the symptoms will stop very quickly. But for the majority the pill seems to have good effects. I personally don't know a single person who I know that's been on it that has had a bad thing to say about it (apart from one girl who had a weird effect when she changed brands). I have one friend who doesn't want to take it because she doesn't like the whole hormones/artificial idea, but other than that everyone I know loves it.

    That goes for any contraception. Which is why I hate the idea of condoms alone - at least with the pill etc, you have a back-up.
