what do you use? • 

  contraception 04    
how old were you when you first started using contraception; what method did you start with, and where did you learn about it?

i started with birth control. i started out taking it as a hormonal regulator but ended up taking it as a birth control device

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?

nope. my mom was completly against me having sex and still is. infact i was IN TROUBLE for doing it! it was so stupid because she knew it was going to happen.

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

nothing! all they told us was to not have sex! if i wouldnt have been with a guy that wasnt a virgin i dont know what i would have done concerning the condom!

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?

condoms. i love em! they prevent pregnancy and stds! whats better than that?!

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


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)?

i would tell my daughter as much as i could! i had to go out into a world where i had no idea what was going on and it sucked! i would NEVER do that to my daughter. i would tell her to ask me about it whenever she wanted because i wouldnt want to tell her too early or too late.

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

yes. contraception is very important to me. i wont have sex without it. no matter how horny i am i must have a condom. if worst comes to worst im strictly oral.

is the contraception method you use covered by your insurance?


this conversation makes me think....

about the time i lost my virginity at 14 to my 18 year old boyfriend.
