CF ladies, are any of you NOT taking hormonal birth control? I don’t like the idea of putting hormones in my body and wondering if anyone here is using any of the other options

I use the lesbian contraceptive...sorry couldn't resist. My friends all have IUDs


Copper IUD paragard. Best option I've found, but makes your periods heavier.


I have a Mirena and don't even get my period - it's still hormonal but lower than BC pills.


Same. I have a Mirena and used to have heavy, long lasting periods on BC and now I don’t have any.



I recommend a hysterectomy. I had mine 3 years ago and it was one of the best decisions I’ve ever made.


IUD paragard Would still suggest using condoms to avoid STDs coz men can’t be trusted 🥲🙃


#Truth!!! Until we’re exclusive? Wrap it up.


Condoms. Had constant pain, low-grade cramping with Mirena IUD, which doctors said was normal. Spotted all the time; had ghost periods where I had all of the anxiety and PMS but no bleeding and no sense of relief. Do not recommend. Do recommend always wrapping it up and avoiding penetration while ovulating if you can. Has worked for me for 15 years.


I use Phexxi because the non hormonal IUD wouldn't comply with my cervix or vice versa.


Wow I just researched that and it’s so cool I had no idea it even existed!!!

Condoms 🎉


Oh wow that’s awful. That’s exactly what I was afraid of and why I had to look into it further. I am thinking about getting an old-school diaphragm for cervical cap

I have the paragard for a few years now and I like it. I had a pretty light period to begin with so I think it just made my period average.

I was on the pill for 20 years, sporadically switched for the patch, ring, and Nexplanon. No issues. My man got a vasectomy and I miss not having periods, but not enough to get back on anything.

I have a Mirena IUD, really like it.

I’m not! Why are you considering them?

Paraguard IUD. Had it two years. It does make your period heavier, but worth it to me for a non-hormonal solution.

Hey everyone I just looked into phexxi I had no idea this existed -everyone check it out!
