pros and cons of getting on birth control
I am assuming you mean hormonal birth control such as oral contraceptive pills? It depends on the type. The combined pill (oestragen and progesterone) is highly, though not 100% effective. It is easier to take than a progesterone only pill as it is actually preventing ovulation, therefore you have a 12-hour window in which to take it. Its fantastic for regulating your periods. It also lets you skip periods. However, its contrau indicated if you have high blood pressure, a BMI over 35 or get foecal migraines, as it increases blood thickness and its likely to exacerbate these conditions which puts you at risk of stroke. Also, if you miss one pill, you cannot rely on it until you have been taking the pills correctly for a full week.
Progesterone only pills (mini-pills) provide good protection against pregancy though not quite as good as a combined pill, and in most cases you have to take them within the same two hours everyday as they do not prevent ovulation. They work by making the v@ginal mucus impermeable to sperm, and this effect only lasts 24 hours. The good thing is, they can be taking by people for whom oestragen-containing pills are contraindicated, and if you miss a pill, you only have to be back on the pills for two days before they are effective again. You can also get progesterone only pills which do prevent ovulation and like thge combined pills you dont have to be quite so pedantic about taking them at the correct time each day. One bad thing I have found about progesterone only pills is that they can make you bleed randomly, but for me this got better over time (I cant take combined pills because of my foecal migraines).
Another option is depo provera shots which again is progesterone only. It is one of the most effective hormonal contraception as there is much less room for error, considering you get a shot about every three months. The downside of this is that it can take a while for you to return to normal fertility. You can also get implants which release hormones over time which are very effective and are pretty idiot proof because you dont have to remember to take pills everday.
Pros - protection against concieving a child (although it's not 100% effective), if you have something big coming up you know when you're going to get your period or you can choose to not have it. Cons - there are side affects such as weight gain or loss, acne, bad menstrual cramps etc. but everyone's different and it may effect you differently you just need to see which one suits you best.
It can decrease acne, decrease period discomfort, allow you to choose weather to have a period or not, lose weight, lots of pros. If your having any negative side effects you should get a different perscription.
You can have sex, without worrying AS MUCH about concieving a kid. Your boobs sometimes get bigger. Clears up acne... raddaradda.
you can prevent weight gain and save can save a lot of money.
