  yOur contraception experiences 
what do you use? • 

  contraception 01    
how old were you when you first started using contraception; what method did you start with, and where did you learn about it?

16 after my first child.

did your mother talk to you about preventing unwanted pregnancy? did she bring it up, or did you? did you discuss it with your friends?


what about school - what did they tell you regarding birth control?

we never had any school programs

have you tried more than one method? what do you like about the one you're using now, and what don't you like about it?

I tried them all. The Pill the IUD, the Diaphram, and then had an emergency Histerctomy.

have you had any problems, side effects, etc. with contraception?

Yes with the IUD It got lost and had to go to the Doctor to have his pull it out.

what would you tell your daughter (real or hypothetical) about birth control? When would you start talking to her about it (or others you've tried)?

Yes. I did tell them both. And my oldest is 30 and no children. My 25 yr old daugther has a 5year old.

do you always use contraception when you have sex (that is, when not-hoping to conceive)? How important is contraception to you?

I had my historectomy at age 32.

is the contraception method you use covered by your insurance?

yes it was.

this conversation makes me think....

how lucky I was with my own children even with my son talk about birth control. He is 23 and no children.
