I apologize if someone mentioned that the Mirena is locally acting, I have a newborn and I’m tired! Haha. By rhythm method I meant the temping/charting/etc.
I also forgot to mention that I took the pill for years and had no problems on it or coming off of it. Everyone is different.
I completely agree that teaching abstinence is silly. Teens need better education about their bodies and girls should definitely know about their cycles. HOWEVER since teen pregnancy is pretty detrimental I think young people should use other forms of birth control as well- the benefits of the pill preventing teen pregnancy outweigh its possible risks in my opinion.
