I’m so sick of the pill and I feel like it’s so bad for you and I have been on it for years. Can’t get an IUD (personal reasons please don’t ask). What are the best other forms of BC that are low side effects/low maintenance ??

I’ve got nexplanon (the implant in your arm) and love it. Doesn’t work for everyone, but it does for me - only side effect has been complete lack of a period (which honestly is a plus!), and only maintenance is getting it replaced every few years.

I get my period every other month and it’s WAY lighter. I still have cramping on months but I use a light tampon or liner instead of the ultra every two hours.

Is there a reason why condoms aren’t considered? Easiest BC imo

I tried all of the bc options and my body just couldn’t handle any of them. Condoms plus timing my cycle (read taking charge of your fertility) has worked going on 7 years now!

This will certainly be my next option-I’m sick of putting things in my body, but I also have bad periods to begin with so BC helped with that. Will deifnteiky look into that thank you!

Third for the nuvaring! My doctor and I decided an IUD would be bad for me as I already experience pretty intense cramps, and I wasn’t interested in the pill because of potential side effects with the hormones. The nuvaring is also hormonal, but at least it’s localized and not something I’m ingesting that will spread throughout the body.

Oh wow I had no idea. Scared to trust soemthing I insert myself😂but seems to have positive reviews

Nuvaring - I loved it but recently switched to IUD.

Second Nuvaring, it's so easy!

Nuvaring just don't forget to not put it back in...

However it can cause blood clots and other disorders in some folks

I went straight to Accenture right after college and while I’m so grateful for having a good job, I just feel like I haven’t done enough and will never realize certain financial goals at the rate I’m going. The problem is I’ve never really been good at setting attainable goals and often get discouraged and feel as though I can never be “the high achiever”

Hi fishes, I am currently working with a Top medical device Org but currently there is no learning & no scope of growth here. On the other hand I received a big offer from a startup, which is doing good in India. So my question is, is it a good step to move from a Big US MNC to an Indian Startup ( doing pretty well). Will my profile be hampered when working with startup?

Went out this weekend for my cousin’s 21st bday. My cousin ended up getting super sick, throwing up at the bar, etc. my buddy and his gf came to the same bar (they were celebrating gf’s bday). Seeing my cousin in a bad state I decided to take her home. My buddy’s gf got super mad at me and my gf for wanting to care for my cousin. She then gave a half assed apology saying she was annoyed at the situation. I don’t really know how to bring this up to my friend. Any suggestions are appreciated!
