Last week I had my implant removed. Why? At the time it seemed clear: I had no s*x drive and I wanted to be hormone-free for a while. Now? I’m not so sure. What good is a s*x drive if you’re not having s*x? And the hormone-free thing? He-llooo, emotional roller coaster!
I’m thirty (read: not getting any younger) and I was very tired of wanting to want my husband, he of the cute dancing and silly grin, so I figured spending some time getting to know my cycle (sounds icky, doesn’t it?) might be a good idea. When we’re ready to start trying to spawn (it’s a JOKE), I want us to be ready to go.
Now? Every time my husband approaches me with that look (your husbands have “that look” too, right?), visions of puking on planes and frantic attempts to de-house ensue. No thanks, buddy.
So now I’m not sure what to do. Doctors seem hell-bent on pushing the hormonal birth control, but I don’t want hormones! *stomping feet* Barrier methods seem so 1980’s, somehow. And c*ndoms? No, thanks. There’s a 100% chance of failure when you hate your method so much you don’t use it, ya know?
What kind of birth control do you use? And do you like it?
