What should I do when I want to stop using birth control due to side effects, but my partner wants me to stay on it?
This sounds like a situation where you need to find another method that’s best for you and your body, if you don’t want to become pregnant.
Whether that means not using hormonal birth control anymore and relying on abstinence or condoms or finding options that work better for you, your partner needs to respect your decision and know that it’s your body and your choice.
Research other birth control options with your partner – some have different or no hormones.
Ask your partner if they want to come with you to your next doctor’s appointment to discuss options.
