Re: It’s time to come off birth control

We’ve actually already had that kind of discussion. I’d like to bring the conversation back to birth control if that’s okay, I would be interested to hear peoples real life experiences of coming off hormonal birth control, particularly the implant if anyone has a story to share?

Re: It’s time to come off birth control

i had a read of the articles but the thought of them makes me feel weird :lol: yeah definitely, because I’m so anxious he doesn’t enjoy sex either, so it will be better for both of us to just stick to non-penetrative activities I think. Do you have any articles on making a sex life based around thos...

Re: It’s time to come off birth control

Hi Alice! Thanks for getting back to me :) I’ve always found sex painful, due to upbringing I still have negative feelings regarding sex (eg super religious fanatical beliefs being forced on me), so I know it’s likely a tension thing, but I remember being so disappointed the first time that it wasn’...

Recently, I’ve started to feel it’s time I come off it. But I don’t want to ...

Re: Birth control and liver

I asked the nurse and she confirmed it was a non issue :) Isn’t it funny, a few years ago I was worried about pregnancy scares, and now I’m worried about liver functions and smear tests!

Re: Birth control and liver

Okay thanks Sam W :)

Is the main concern then that if you already have liver problems, then the active hormone in the implant won’t be metabolised and used by the body properly?

Re: Nexplanon side effects

Hi Sam

So I went to see a Dr and he wasn't very worried, just prescribed some hydrocortisone cream and said use as and when needed. Although funnily enough it's not happened since I went to see the Dr :roll: :lol:

Nexplanon side effects

Hi guys. I know you don't replace the advice of a healthcare professional but I thought I'd see what you say before I go and make an appointment. I had my nexplanon replaced last July and haven't had any major problems up until the past couple of months. The end at which my implant was inserted on a...

Re: Soy interactions?

I get what you're saying about the counselling, but me and my counsellor have explored my issues with sex, there comes a point where it's wasn't a productive use of either of our time to continue because I know why I fear sex, I know the reasons behind it (religious reasons etc) so it really didn't ...

I don't know what my remaining options are.

There wasn't really much else to explore with my counselling so tha...

Hi everyone :) Just want to bounce a question off you guys..I've started drinking soya milk as a way to be dairy free, and my manager at work said that soy messes with your hormones?

Re: STI testing

Yes it does, thanks!

So are you saying that I can specify if I want a pregnancy test or not? And even if they do pregnancy tests as part of the screening am I allowed to say I don't want it?

Also, where can I pick up another DIY chlamidya kit? Will my GP surgery offer them?

An update, I started bleeding, and the tenderness is nearly all gone, so I'm guessing it is probably related in some way :)

The paracetamol is an over the counter medicine, so I just took it from my cupboard at home hoping it would do something to help.
