I've been on the pill off and on for the past 6 or 7 years. It seemed like an obvious choice to be on it at first - it was a good method of back-up birth control, and then with Matt, once we realized that we both wanted a long-term commitment, it made sense to stay on it.
Now, the more I think about the fact that I'm putting synthetic hormones in my body, the more I'm questioning how good/safe this is.
On the other hand, it seems like condoms probably aren't terribly environmentally friendly.
How do you guys feel about the pill? Have you been on it? What made you decide to stay on it or stop using it? Do you have any alternatives to suggest?
