So, a lot of us ladies often get to the point where we have to make a decision about contraception. Whether we want something like an IUD or hormonal contraceptives or if we’re happy purely with barrier methods.
I myself am scared shitless of IUD’s. Everyone I know that has had one has had awful experiences and I can’t bring myself to do it. And barrier methods on their own… we’ll let’s just say they’re effective until they aren’t
I live in Korea and here you just buy contraceptive pills from the pharmacy with no need to consult a doctor or get a prescription. However, are there any known implications of using hormonal contraceptives like this on people with HBV. I’m presuming it needs to be broken down and metabolised in the liver? Would perhaps a hormonal injection be better or is that just as bad?
I will of course, consult with my GP prior to any decisions but wondered what people’s thoughts were here.
