Birth Control

Today’s episode is an important one; birth control! Garance chats up Tori, Natalie and Emily about the variety of options out there, the side effects of taking it, some very funny mishaps and how lucky we are to have access to it and talk about it so openly.

  • What an interesting conversation, thank you for sharing it! – I agree, just having the choice of using birth control is a huge privilege! I think you should carry on the conversation on another PMF and talk more about the decision of quitting the birth control to start trying for a baby. Personally, it did feel like a big deal for us as a couple (and we are expecting now).

    I also think how funny – and odd – it is the change in attitude towards protected and unprotected sex as you age: you go through your 20s actively avoiding a pregnancy, and the moment you are in a settled relationship, married or hit your 30s, the pressure from family (and even friends) really kicks in – and the topic of your fertility almost becomes public domain!

  • I was taking pills for year until I got a fibro adenoma in my breast (supposedly that’s one of the side effects of BC) that started growing rapidly. Once off the pill, omg I realized how crazy I was.
    Ladies, please do self examination regularly and get screened at least annually. There are a ton of organizations (at least here in NYC) that do it for free.

  • May I ask the fertility app that Garance recommended?

    Really nice and important topic guys, just before recommending so much Natural Cycles, as a stockholmer – since it’s a Swedish app – I feel obligated to bring to your attention that its under investigation by Swedish authorities.

    Just be aware, of course no contraception is 100 % but still this particular one is very much under development.

    Thank you for this! Most of all, thank you for Garance’s honesty about her abortion. It’s refreshing to hear her talk about it the way I would like to xx
