Birth Control Ok?
Posted 11 July 2005 - 06:30 PM
Ok, so to my question...my downward spiral started with Depo birth control. (Anyone else?) The worst nightmare imaginable followed, but thanks to the Internet and mssg boards like this, I realized that eating gluten-free eliminated most of my problems. (Drs said I was crazy...was all in my head...birth control wouldn't do such a thing. Etc.)
So now I'm back to square one. Needing a birth control ('cause hubby and I aren't ready for kids until I'm done with law school) but I'm SO scared to re-live all that over again. Has anyone been thru this? Is it ok to try another birth control?

Is depo the injected bc? Or a patch? Or? I'm assuming it alters your hormones to work. In which case the logical alternative would be a) barrier like condom and/or b)spermicide. You can get straight spermicide at the drugstore in a box and you put it in like a tampon, and you can use it w/o a condom. Obviously, you have to use it each time.

PS--If you really want to be gluten-free, you need to check your shampoos, face lotions, lipsticks. Even one small item like lipstick or chapstick that isn't gluten-free can hold you back. There are a lot of posts on products I can help you find.
gluten-free since Feb 2005
