I need help real bad, and please, if you feel the need to yell at me, take it elsewhere.
I am using the pill for medical reasons, and I just tried to get an appointment to have the exam to refill the prescription. Because I go to a walk-in clinic, they turned me away. they only have appointments during the day, and I WORK during the day! I am so scared because if I have a natural period…well let’s just say it won’t be pretty. I’ll spare you details. They started getting hissy with me (the receptionists) saying “just use a backup method!!” and I stormed out. I didn’t feel like explaining to them and the whole lobby that I wasn’t on it for contraception. I really hardly care if I get pregnant to be honest,. I want it to stay healthy!!
So bascially, assuming I can get the exam sometime this month, I still have to wait until after my next period to start taking it (unless the doc has good news for me, because as I said…if I have to have a natural period, it won’t end well)
Is it possible at ALL to use NFP for that month? Is there any way at ALL to avoid pregnancy other than not having sex for a whole month and a half? I ask because I just had to go through a month of “nothing” because I had surgry and I was on antibiotics and those counteract the pills. I’ve been married 3 months, and most of our marriage has been “nothing” because of these stupid pills. I DO NOT need someone pimping NFP to me because trust me, if it was my option, I’d be ON that, I just have to have SOMETHING to keep my periods from killing me. I’m SO frustrated right now! And no, the JohnII institute or whatever isn’t an option for my husband and I. We’ve looked into it.
If anyone ANYONE can be helpful, please help!
