Birth Control

Page 2 of 2 First 12

  1. yes, there are many benefits of BC, but it is indeed a steroid. It messes with the female hormones, changes lengths of periods, amount of bleeding, mood, etc. etc....

    Its my personal opinion, and believe me i can see exactly were people who dont believe its a steroid are coming from and i respect that but i think otherwise!

    Maybe im biased because my girl was on the pill and she was raging like she was mega dosing dbol! hah really moody!!!!

    exactly...

    -test is given to induce puberty in pre purberty males.
    -BC (estrogen) is given to induce puberty in pre puberty females.

    both manipulate a sex hormone, so both are steroids.

  3. Steroids include estrogen, cortisol, progesterone, and testosterone. Estrogen and progesterone are made primarily in the ovary and in the placenta during pregnancy, and testosterone in the testes. Testosterone is also converted into estrogen to regulate the supply of each, in the bodies of both females and males. Certain neurons and glia in the central nervous system (CNS) express the enzymes that are required for the local synthesis of pregnane neurosteroids, either de novo or from peripherally-derived sources. The rate-limiting step of steroid synthesis is the conversion of cholesterol to pregnenolone, which occurs inside the mitochondrion.

    We're discussing the negative effects of steroids in the human body. This includes ALL steroids, estrogen, testosterone, whatever... Nobody ever said this was about androgens...

    TELL HER TO GET ON PARAGARD. It's an IUD, no hormones, and takes minutes to insert by a health care professional and last 12 years. I was on the shot and pills and I had ZERO desire for sex. I got it last month and although my periods are heavy again, I think I can get back to my normal self pre-hormones. I'm still ****ed up as my boyfriend can attest, but I think I should be normal in no time.

  8. Has anyone tried the b/c Alyacen (generic for Necon)? When I went to my doctor I requested the pill that was least likely to make me retain water, gain weight or enlarge my cup size. Although I haven't had those side effects, I don't feel that I'm leaning out like I could or want to. I weight train 3x a week, swim laps and have upped my HIIT's to 5x a week. Also trying different ways to get my diet even more in check.

    Just wondering if anyone has had experience on this b/c and if it could be keeping me from leaning out.

    Birth control is not going to prevent you from leaning out. Retaining water and gaining weight happen to those who don't have their nutrition and/or training in check when using the pill. Trust me, I was using it last year and made NO difference whatsoever to my ability to get or stay lean (and in fact, was my leanest when was in the latter months of using it!) That said, everyone is different, so may have slightly different experiences with, but it shouldn't affect your ability to lean out!

  10. I'm also a big advocate of non-hormonal BC. Paraguard is brilliant (copper IUD) and the best solution. Weight gain is just one of the horrid side effects of administering exogenous estrogen. Hint: There's a reason that female BB take things like Tamoxifen and Arimidex to dial in for a show.
