What Your Favorite Birth Control Method Says About You

You mean you use birth control? Like, you think about it and plan it out and use it? Guess that doesn’t leave you a lot of time to write Hamlet.

(If you are not using condoms and opt for another birth control method, get your partner tested for STDs beforehand. OBVIOUSLY).

    Yay! I can have ice cream for dinner. I really think it makes a better breakfast, though. Possibly while enjoying a morning-after with the man you just had protected sex with.

    Does using the Implant mean I can have ice cream for dinner? Gosh, I hope so…

    • Jennifer Wright

      7 entire bowls of ice cream! All the ice cream! And one of mine because I forgot about it.

  • BeccaTheCyborg

    The Pill (because periods are terrifying otherwise), condoms (because mess) AND my tubes are tied.

    I get ice cream at all the meals. And it’s the good stuff. Alternately, I’m obsessive, a neat freak and sickly. Who has champagne sorbet in the freezer.

  • Lauren

    I’m taking this permission to have ice cream for dinner seriously. I’m also having 2 bowls since I’m on the pill and use condoms. Yay for lots of ice cream!

    I resent that you put withdrawal on the last slide.
    If it’s done right, it’s more effective than a diaphragm, cervical cap, or sponge.
    Psychologically, you don’t feel as safe, but it is as effective if it’s done right, according to Planned Parenthood.
    It does require a lot of trust, however.

    …What about condoms AND spermicide? Does that earn me more ice cream? Or no?

  • emily

    i went with condoms because, you know, hormones make me a suicidal, sobbing mess and both my husband and i agree rubbers are preferable to 1) babies 2) me unable to function 1/4 of the time.

    yay, ice cream.

    Missing one: NuvaRing

      I know…I want ice cream for dinner! I’m a grown-up too, right?

  • kbaz

    Champagne sorbet?!?! Where and how do I get this? Do I need to do all of those other things to get to have some? I use a patch, does that make me sufficiantly cool to get to partake in what is assuredly amazing (that’s the sorbet I’m talking about, not delightful, protected sex, although that’s fabulous too)?

    • BeccaTheCyborg

      I got mine at the convenience store next to my building, but I haven’t seen it much of anywhere else. I swear it’s otherwise a normal convenience store.

    • Kay

      Hagen Daaz also has a really tasty blackberry cabernet sorbet.

  • Steph

    Two bowls of ice cream? Yay for pills and condoms!

  • Beth

    Nuvaring + condoms = double the ice cream?

  • Baunilhete

    pill + condoms all the way, can I have a double ice cream?

  • no.

    birth control isn’t 100% effective. it’s not okay to have abortion in with Prayer/hoping pulling out works/only using plan B….it’s not a form of birth control, it’s not an easy decision to make, and it happens even when people are on the pill sometimes
