Birth Control help

Hey, so my FH and I are saving DTD for marriage but we won't be able to afford children for a couple years. What are you ladies using for birth control? I would like a pill that is not an abortificant. If an egg happens to get fertilized, I don't want it to be prevented from attaching. I just want a pill that will prevent the egg from being fertilized in the first place. I would be very appreciative of any suggestions :) thanks much!

The contracepive pill, when taken properly is 99% effective at preventing pregnancy and most (not all so check with your doctor) wont have a negative effect on an embryo should and egg get fertilized.


I found this the best contraceptive for me when I wasn't ready for children. I was afraid to rely on condoms alone in case one should break (which happened to us twice in 7 years).

I did not know that about the pill. Huh, learn something new every day.


I'm currently on the pill, and honestly I couldn't tell you if it just stops fertilization or what. I had also looked into mirena but price wise it wasn't worth it for me since my pill is covered mostly by insurance. I'm not sure if it's different from other IUDs, but I didn't need to already have a child for this one.

The pill, patch, and injection are all just estrogen and progesterone (unless it's a mini-pill which is just progesterone). What they do is they keep the levels of these hormones high, as would naturally happen if you were pregnant. By making your body 'think it's pregnant' they stop the formation and release of an egg each month. It is critical you take your pill at the same time each day though, because if your levels of these hormones drop the formation of an egg will start. You have about a three hour time window to take your pill and still be 99.9% effective.


If you were to become pregnant on the pill it does not abort the baby, and most studies show that there are no harmful side effects to the baby. It isn't harmful to your body either because it's just mimicking natural hormonal patterns in your body.


The only method of birth control that can be labeled abortive is the morning after pill or plan b pill, but that's not really a method of birth control, as you're not supposed to use it regularly.


Anyways, HTH, if you have any questions feel free to message me, I'm a nurse so I have a good idea what I'm talking about! :P

i take the pill and i work in a pharmacy and my pharmacist told me that birth control pills dont harm a fertilized egg...there is just no need to take them while your pregnant thats why the dont recomend it....so the pill is great and effective if you use it correctly...but in case something would go wrong and you would concieve it wont harm the baby

Thanks so much for your help ladies. Now I'm curious, everyone makes reference to 'the pill' but, excuse me if I'm wrong, isn't there more than 1? I am very much against abortion for religious reasons but we just won't be able to afford children for a couple years.

As in, different kinds of pill? Or just different kinds of birth control? There are several kinds of BC available, but I'm sure one of the other posters could answer more about them. (Y'all seem so knowledgable!)


With the pill, it's just a term for birthcontrol taken orally or- BC in pill form. :/ I don't know much about that, but a gyno could really answer most questions. Such as, how will it affect my sex drive, dosage questions, etc.

A monthly pack of birth conotrol is not an abortionificant, they all operate the same way as has been described above. The only difference is the brand. I am on a generic brand of the pill, have been for years, and it works. We also use condoms as well, but I don't know if your beliefs allow that or not.


There are no abotionificant pills. Even the Plan B pill, something hotly contested, is not one. It is simply a very concentrated form of the regular pill. Once you're pregnant, you're pregnant, there is no pill on the market that can do anything about it.

The birth control pill, or as often refered to as the pill, is just a pill. Although there are multiple brands and dosages, they are all just estrogen and progesterone. Except of course the mini-pill which is just progestrone and used for people who can't take estrogen. Alesse, one of the lowest dosages available is still just as effective as the higer doses.


There can be side effects to the pill such as morning sickness, and lack of sex drive. Keep in mind that being on a lower dosage pill will prevent these symptoms.


And yes, as jennypaul said, no technically plan b is not an abortive because if you're pregnant you're pregnant, if taken under 72 hours after unprotected sex it will prevent the fertilization of the egg. So although it doesn't abort it is in the same mindset of it - just preventing before it happens. It can also prevent an egg from sticking to the uterine lining, so there is a possibility that you could have a fertilized egg but the pill won't let it implant. (Which is why although plan B says it's no abortive some people argue it's still classified as one).
