    I do think it may be really tough, particularly on a teenager, as it causes you to m/c. I've had a natural m/c and it's not nice, both physically and emotionally Sometimes surgery may be the best option, sometimes the drug maybe. I would never take it unless it was another life threatening situation for me, but I would prefer to m/c at home then have surgery.

    Everyone is different though.

    Anyone I know has chosen surgery over the pill because you don't know exactly when or how painful the process will be. The councelling part is the same regardless.

    I can understand that. I think my decision to chose a drug that ended my EP (which wasn't RU but a chemo drug which is routinely used for EP) rather than surgery to remove the baby was partly bc I have severe reactions to GA. Plus I wanted to save my tube at all costs bc we still want another baby.

    So I guess my point is agreeance that everyone is different and the method they choose

    No silly! Perhaps the shot in the arm (depro). Trusting young kids with condoms or the pill which they have to remember to take every day is asking for trouble..

    Plenty of people fall pregnant on Depo, nothing is 100% apart from abstinence!

    I agree nothing it totally 'safe' but I wouldlike to see the comparison rates of depo v pill/condoms.

    So many women say "I was on the pill" but weren't taking it correctly. (forgetting, not taking other precautions when on antibiotics etc). There's no way all the women (even on here) who claim they got pregnant when on contraception were doing things correctly. Having something in you just removes a lot of the room for human error.

    All contraception (minus rhythm method) has around 97% effectiveness if used properly... the issue like you say, is a teen using a condom properly or forgetting the pill

    What if your hypothetical daughter (coz I know you have a boy) doesn't want the depo shot? I gained 30kg using it and it side effects leave a lot to be desired. What if she just wants to use a barrier method after all the condom covers std's as well.

    Do they hand out contraception to underage children? I'm not sure they use the depo shot for menstration issues (it tends to make things worse).

    Terminating a fetus that was conceived through a rape is also totally different than aborting it for lifestyle reasons.

    I think this new drug is a good thing, terminations are devastating enough in most cases, I get the impression that some people think D&Cs should be kept because it is harder on the mother etc, but I think that is just cruel. Women will terminate regardless and usually it is a really heartbreaking decision for them, we don't need to make it harder to punish them.

    As delirum says - there are different reasons for choosing one way over the other, some people react badly to GA, or you may be worried about scaring.

    On the flip side, I can totally see why someone wouldn't want to take the pill when it causes you to m/c.

    It is all about choice really.

    Next stop male contraception, why does it always have to come down to us all of the time?
