Birth Control OUT of Control

Birth Control has always caused me to wonder… although all drugs must list their potential side effects.. some of the most common side effects of birth control are the following:

  • Weight Gain
  • Acne
  • Mood Swings

If you were to combine these or even take them on their own… they do not exactly scream attractive!

As I delve even deeper into the whole birth control myriad, the IUD’s, not to be confused with the military IED’s are t-shaped items that are inserted with 2 fishing line strings that dangle.  Some pamphlets have talked about how you should ‘check your strings monthly’ although they say that your partner will never feel the strings… I am not sure about you, but, this just creeps me out.

Going further down the path there is the ring, the patch, the injection and so on and so on.  Each option may or may not contain hormones; however, some do and some do not and you need to keep these all straight; however, the list of side effects has become just as long as birth control options.

When I think about the whole situation I simply have to wonder – WTF?  I get that for some it is the best option; however, when it comes right down to it.. are all of these options really options?

I still have to giggle when I think about the first 3 most common side effects.. if you ask me, those three things are sort of the best birth control around today… especially when you have all 3 at once.

When are they going to come up with a pill that a man can take daily, at the same time?  We can put a man on the moon, open our car door with our phone, but, come up with a male form of birth control pill… must be somewhere on the drawing room floor.
