Have you heard of natural cycles? It’s the only FDA approved hormone free birth control. It’s an app with a thermometer.

Every birth control I ever tried negatively impacted my hormones/health. I wish I found something that worked for my body. But since I didn’t husband got a vasectomy. It’s nice not having to worry about bc now.

Do you think you'd like to have more children? If not, you and your husband should discuss a vasectomy. Messing with your hormones is no good. Try not to look at your period as an inconvenience. It's a great way to get to know your body. If you use a menstrual cup instead of tampons/ pads you'll only have to deal with your period twice a day & it's a lot less messy. It's also better for your body, the environment, & your wallet. Good luck!

IUD freaked me out so I got the arm implant. I’ve only had if for a month but I’ve had no problems so far. The reason I decided to go that route is because I’ve had a couple of friends who have it and they love it!
