Those of you who have been here for a while know that I'm very open with you. Hell, you probably know more about me than some of my closest friends!! So, I figured this was no different...
About 3 weeks ago I took myself off birth control. Don't get excited...it's not because I want to have a baby. Not yet, at least. It's because of all the weight I have gained from being on the pill.
A few times in the last couple of months I have....yes, maybe drunkenly...broke down to Mike about how I really feel about the way I look. He always says stuff about working out at home and I just can't get motivated at home. I have been there and done that and I have to get IN the gym to be motivated. I guess that's not such a bad thing, though.
So, knowing I would be getting in the gym almost 5 times a week this summer, I figured I didn't want anything hindering me from losing that weight and feeling a little better about myself. Mike agreed. Although......what man actually likes "wrapping it up" so there was a little hesitation. (Yup...getting personal.)
Mike has always wanted me to get an IUD. I have heard a ton of horror stories about infections and stuff like that and am super hesitant. Plus, my doctor told me that it's not really recommended for anyone who hasn't yet had a child. So, most people would just go with that and leave it.
Here's my problem....my doctor is a wacko. I don't have nor have ever been to an actual gynocologist. My doctor is a general practitioner and has always been the one I go to for my pap. She always said if anything was wrong she would send me to an actual gyno but there has been no reason. Annddd....all of them around me are guys except one....and I danced with her in our adult dance class and that's just weird.
I wouldn't really care about a guy, but there's something perver about a 20 something year old dude deciding....yeah, I wanna stare at p*$$y all day. I mean really?!?! But I don't know what to believe about my crazy doctor...
So I need your help. Do you have an IUD? Or what are your feelings about them? Have you ever had any issues?
What should I do????
