My First Time: Getting Birth Control



I recently decided to go on birth control for the first time. This is my experience with planned parenthood and the pill. I hope this is helpful to some of you.

Follow me!

Todays video is pretty personal, but I decided to film it because I think it is important for other girls out there to see that it is totally okay and normal to go to planned parenthood for birth control. With all that has been going on with birth control and politics within the last few years, I didn’t really think too much of it because I wasn’t affected by it. I never thought it was a place that I would go. But then I found myself in a place where I needed to start taking responsibility for my body, and get birth control. My first thought on where to go? Planned Parenthood. I was honestly pretty nervous and a little embarrassed about the idea of the whole thing. But, Planned Parenthood makes it so easy, accessible, and affordable to get the care you need. I’m really glad I went, and I hope this encourages you to feel confident in using birth control whenever the time comes that you decide you want or need it!

    I recommend looking into different types of birth control like the shot, IUD, implant, etc… the pill isn't for everyone especially when you're worried about side effects of depression

    “To control births” 😂 I went for the first time today, my bf accompanied me. It’s true, they are so welcoming and make you feel comfortable. My first time taking BC! I’m excited but nervous. 😬

    I thought normally you have to have a gynecological examination first? Like a pelvic exam & Pap smear? Condoms are a good option. There are multiple methods available & different options or use two different methods together. Check WebMD for different options. Hormones can affect your emotions.

    If you start taking the pill on the first day of your period (eg – a wednesday) do you have to work your way through ALL of the hormone pills before you take the sugar pills? Or do you just take the sugar pills when you get to them, and then finish off the remaining hormone pills?

    Thank you so much for doing this video. Birth control is a topic that people should feel free to discuss openly. It does sadden me that many young women do not feel like discussing birth control with their parents. The reason I say this is because every woman’s body is different and birth control is not safe for all women. For some women the effects of birth control are virtually nothing at all but for other women, birth control can lead to serious irreversible illnesses or even death. Birth control can sometimes trigger underlying genetic health issues that could potentially be very dangerous. In most cases parents are a good source of family medical history. Those with a family medical history of blood clots, cardiovascular disease, migraines, or circulatory problems should take extreme care when using birth control, even low dosage, because the health risks are enormous. In September of 2018, my 20 year old daughter passed away due to blood clots in her lungs that were triggered by her use of a combination hormonal birth control pill. She got her birth control through Planned Parenthood without the knowledge of either of her parents. Had she discussed her decision with us, we could have informed her of some issues in her family medical history that would make birth control use dangerous and unwise. She did not give us that opportunity. Now she is gone. All that’s left are a mother, father, and younger sister to grieve for her. Please remember young ladies, your decision regarding birth control could potentially effect so many people other than yourselves. Please be safe, please be careful, and most importantly please inform yourselves as much as possible.

    90% of women can STILL get pregnant on birth control! It does NOT prevent pregnancy. I had a serious conversation with my doctor about it and she told me the truth about birth control, it typically only helps with cramps, hormones, and delaying your period.

    I tried the pill and instantly hated it after being sick 27 fricking times in 2 hours girl no I hated that was off it in a month

    thank you i needed this. i’m only 13 and when i was prescribed birth control they told me NOTHING ABOUT IT and that was literally earlier today so i have no clue what to expect

    Birth control can't "cause" depression. Depression isn't something that a medication can bring on. It's a chemical imbalance in your brain. It also isn't necessarily bad for you… If it doesn't work for you then that's one thing, it doesn't mean it's bad for you.
