“My boyfriend doesn’t want me to use birth control because he’s scared we won’t be able to have kids in the future. Do you have advice?”
Using reversible methods of birth control (like the IUD, implant, shot, pill, patch, or ring) won’t change your ability to get pregnant in the future. As soon as you decide you’re ready to get pregnant, you can stop using it and your ability to get pregnant will return very quickly.
Different methods of birth control cause different side effects in different women. When your doctor talks with you about your options, they’ll explain any possible side effects and help you find one that’s right for you.
Using birth control is totally your choice. If your partner still doesn’t want you to use it you may want to think about whether he’s the supportive and caring partner you deserve. Someone that loves and supports you will agree to your decision.
