A friend pointed me to this op-ed on making (at least some) birth control pills available without a prescription. Generally I think that making birth control easier to get is a good thing. I’d also welcome more research on the efficacy of hormonal birth control in fat women. Plus something tells me I’m not the only fat woman who found she had trouble inserting/removing things like the sponge — I tried a sponge once and I ended up having to go to the doctor’s office so it could be removed with forceps.
This also got me wondering how other fats manage birth control. Hey, we haven’t had a poll in a while!
(I did update the poll to add a few more methods)
