You could get a copper IUD though, which is non hormonal :)

Hey, I also have this but until I read your post I thought maybe my boobs were still developing or something like that! (I'm 20)

After reading your post I searched online and the first thing that came up were pages and pages of links to porn websites etc for "puffy nipples", and after searching a little further I found some threads of other women asking pretty much the same question as you!

Judging by the replies on them it seems like there are many men who actually love "puffy" nipples and think they're extremely attractive and sexy! I had no idea of this either and it's made me feel a tonne better after reading them :)

The guy you're with should love your body no matter what, and you should learn to love every aspect of it too! Plus confidence is attractive. There's absolutely nothing wrong with nipples any shape or size, and who knows he might be one of the many who are incredibly turned on by puffy ones :)

The most important thing is, like linkleblue said, is that your body is perfect the way it is!

Jeez that's really annoying! How old are you? You shouldn't feel embarrassed, it's normal and the people at the checkouts certainly won't be bothered either :) if you still feel embarrassed, maybe you could give the money to a friend and ask them to get them for you!

How come you can't order them? Would parents be curious what you were buying or?

I'm not sure which other sites do this but I use durex, and they send them in a normal cardboard box that has absolutely no mention whatsoever of what website/brand it's from
I order condoms myself and I live in student accommodation so as you can imagine it'd be pretty embarrassing (I would be anyway) if they were being delivered to the reception desk! So i made sure before ordered that it was going to be discreet packaging

I came off the pill after 4 years of being on it in July, also not for the purpose of ttc. Like you, I felt generally much happier, less moody/down etc when I came off it
I also began to get dryness on the pill which I hadn't noticed for a while but that has now stopped since coming off it!
Don't get me started on the sore nipples!! Mines were almost unbearable for a few weeks after coming off it, but now I notice they only tend to be sensitive when I'm ovulating. Also, I thought I'd add that you won't be able to calculate your period for a while after coming off of the pill until you've had 5/6 (regular) cycles!
My boyfriend and I just use condoms now, and feel much happier in general, and, speaking personally, I'm glad knowing that in the future when we are ready to ttc (won't be a for a loooong time yet) that we'll be able to start straight away :) (of course this is true for the copper IUD too)

In my experience the process was over in no time, I just took a couple of ibuprofen around an hour before it and it was only really uncomfortable mostly! It did hurt when the IUD was being inserted but that wasn't for longer than five seconds, the rest of it was just a bit uncomfortable. The nurses also talked to me about my plans for the week etc the whole way through it so that I wasn't thinking about it which definitely helped. The only thing was that I had to sit around for a few minutes after because I felt a bit light headed, but that was all! Just remember that it will be worth it and usually the whole process is over in 5 minutes, the painful bit just a few seconds  :)

Hey everyone just thought I'd update you all! Ended up going for the copper IUD, only just got it fitted about an hour ago; was painful for only a few seconds but not unbearable! Guess I got quite lucky. Able to stop taking my pill as of today :)

Oh that's fab!! That was something that I was also a bit worried about. Been so helpful, actually looking forward to it in a strange way now (if that's what I do go for) haha!
Oh yea I bet seeing that date was strange! Taking a pill every day has never been a problem for me, i don't think I've ever forgotten one although and a little while of pain and not having to think about it for 10 years seems pretty appealing!

Dear god a lot to take in!! I'll call up the doctor tomorrow to get appointment and take it from there :)

Pip, that's crazy how much you had going on due to your pill! Hopefully will find the right one for me, will keep you all updated

Socks, jeez it sounds like you did have it tough!! Also, may be a bit personal but can your boyfriend feel the strings from it too??!

Great news Charlie, even if it doesn't work out perfectly in terms of bleeds I don't mind as my priority now I think is getting off this one, not doing me any good at all any more! Baffles me why it works wonders for so long yet now it's a completely different story, ah well

Thanks all for the advice and experiences, feel a lot more confident about it now :)

Haha no bother at all any advice is welcome! So, regardless of whether I end up switching or stopping my body will be confused either way, but for either of those options judging by the holiday mid June might work out the best time to do so? I know you can't really predict these things but hey! Also, this might be silly to ask but like would you consider the 'right' pill for you being one that doesn't give you crazy mood swings etc too or is that near impossible on bc? Apologies for 21 questions too!

Pip, can I ask how it was in those few months you stopped birth control? Is that when things started to go back to normal? I'm going to Vietnam on 1st July, only for 12 days but I wouldn't like to be starting a new pill just before i go so was considering taking a month or two off of birth control before starting again! Just wondering if it would be worth waiting off or going on to another pill straight away. Would sort of like to see if I feel better without it too! Glad that you're feeling much better now!

Socks, you're not doing a good job of selling it to me haha!! How long have you had yours for may I ask? And is the bleeding more or less regular with you?
