Taboo Topics: Birth Control - Choosing Between The Lesser of Evils

As a society, we are ultimately very lucky to have access to birth control and be able to decide when or if we want to have children. The issue is that, for many women, birth control is less than ideal. Be it a pill or an IUD, these contraception options act primarily by altering the hormone levels in your body, which can make you emotional, irritable, and sometimes feel as though you are not in control of your own state of being. This is not to mention the whole slew of health risks that are associated with these medications. Another option is a copper IUD, this option can increase bleeding and amplify the pain from natural periods, which at times can be incapacitating. Then there are the classics: condoms, these are inconvenient and risky at best. Of course, abstinence is a possibility, but a sad one indeed. This is all to say that none of these options are ideal and it can feel crushing to think that you must suffer with one of these choices for a huge chunk of your life, particularly when you have a heightened sensitivity to some of these symptoms. So the question is, given that these are all the options we have, how do we make the choice?Check out this new episode of The Frame of Mind Coaching™ Podcast! the episode's transcript here: are your thoughts on birth control?
