[i]Ladies.... or gents .. lol

I would like to get some opinions, comments, stories etc.. about modern day Birth Control!

I've this feeling that many issues that might go wrong now a days with pregnancies.. might be because women of this new World.. have all these different options for Birth Control. There are so many from the Pill to this
new "Emergency Contraception Pills (ECP)"
that alters ones body, to not concieve.. or worse.. make sure you dont. And are we really shocked why so many women can't become pregnant? Or have Miss-Carriages?

Maybe they are all tied in together.. The doctors will tell you NO! but well.. I question all of it.. Here are a few links taking you to the Discriptions and side effects of some of the most common used Contraceptions....

Unhappy Birth Control

I am becoming increasingly of the opinion that birth control pills, although liberating to women when they were introduced, could be the cause of what I see as increased difficulty in conceiving amongst the young women I know and also a 1 in 3 risk of miscarriage amongst those that do become pregnant. I think we have trained the body too well not to have children!

Talking birth control

there are a few methods one can do involving birth control .

1.make the guy wear a condom ...it is a great risd to the woman all that chemicals in her ....if she likes the pill then she should not complain about the side effects

2. keeps her legs closed ....that is always a sure fire way of not getting pregnant

3.ther are alwas IUD's and such like ........

of course i am not a medical advisor in anyway shape of form whatso ever ...this is just from dating experience ..

I just saw a commericial, (here in the U.S.) for a new birth control pill that helps a woman have only 4 periods a month.

That just doesn't seem right to me.

Talking birth control

basically the bottom line here is it is all about wants and needs thats all ....the smart individual should be wise enough to make that choice rather than moan and complain about all the negative aspects which make their life miserable ........but then that is only my opinion
