Gosh, I never thought in my wildest dreams that I would have to ask this question for a while, but what do you women with type two diabetes do for birth control besides condoms? I know that the hormone based pills come with risk of heart attack and stroke, and since my mom has already had several mini strokes, well I don’t want to take this too lightly.
I’m not much a fan of condoms, but what other options are there for me when these factors are in play:
*I don’t want something to mess with my blood glucose levels.
*I don’t want something with a high risk of weight gain, when I am trying so hard to lose weight.
*I don’t smoke anything and do not plan to in any future lifetime.
Thanks, everyone. I’ve read an article that says us diabetics can use anything, but I couldn’t find anything on the American Diabetes Association website. Any thoughts?
