I was hoping for a bit of advice and hopefully reassurance. I’ve been on the pill religiously since I was 18 (27 now) as its worked brilliantly for me, no side effects and no risk of getting pregnant before we’re ready. However, I’m starting to question the use of it since hearing a lot of horror stories. I’ve read a lot about hormonal contraceptions hindering the process of trying to conceive. I even had a friend say to me “my doctor has said I’m not getting pregnant because I was on the pill for ten years.” Now as someone whos been on the pill for a long time this is scary!
Is it just urban myth? We don’t plan on children until I’m at least 30 (quite possibly after due to financials) as I’m a career changer in my mid twenties and we just couldn’t viably afford it until then, but I’m terrified of getting to the stage that we’re ready and then having difficulty. Should I come off the pill and try something else protection wise? What do you use if not a hormonal contraceptive?
Thanks and apologies for my nervy rant! Life’s hard as a woman wanting a career and a family! Anyone else feel this pressure or is it just me? Haha 🤦🏼♀️😂 x
