I just spoke to my wndo about putting me on hormonal birth control to help manage my blood sugars. I have the worst time controlling my numbers during my period and it makes my a1c higher than I think it should be. I have been using a non hormonal IUD for birth control and today I made the switch to the pill. My endo recommended I use a pill that will give me a period only every 90 days so I don’t have to deal with the blood sugar fluctuations every month. Up until this point, I was strongly against hormonal birth control and refused to alter what my body does naturally just to not get pregnant. I’m having a serious moral dilemma about starting the pill and I’m wondering if anyone else feels this way. The only reason I started the pill was to have better control of my diabetes. If that wasn’t a concern for me, I would never have started the pill. I guess I’m just looking for input from other Type 1 women who might be dealing with a similar struggle.
