I have a question regarding IUDs. I've been on the pill since early 2017 and I get pretty bad side effects. My breasts swell up (they become REALLY painful) and I get extremely nauseous. I haven't been off the pill since 2017 and the symptoms haven't disappeared. I'm honestly sick of it and decided to get an IUD. Have any of you had experiences with IUDs? I am not sure whether to get the hormonal or non-hormonal one. I absolutely hate and almost can't stand the side effects of hormonal birth control, but I get very painful periods and I heard that the copper IUD makes them 10x worse. ;-;

anyone here have experience taking the mini pill? (progesterone only) wanted to take the lowest dose combo pill but estrogen isn't an option for me due to migraines/increased stroke risk.

i'm fuckin terrified of gaining weight/forming acne and losing my libido. this is the first time in my life i have not been acne ridden and slightly overweight and the idea of backsliding is so depressing and scary. i know it works differently for different people but i was hoping some of you might have some exp to share.

Have any of you gotten hives from bc? Tried two kinds and always hives.

No. 124640

thats weird. have heard most people are not allergic to bc because they are just hormones that occur naturally in the body already. its possible you could be allergic to one of the other ingredients/binding agents though? maybe try a different brand or ask a doctor about it.

No. 124642

I did tell them that I am 99% sure the hives are from the mini pills but they told me that it's highly unlikely and got annoyed when i said but not entirely? I had to take a break between them and the hives did nearly go away. I am gonna push them on the allergy tests tho, thanks anon. It's just morifying how dumb some doctors think you are when you voice actual concerns and problems.

i was on n off birthcontrol for two years…
i was on the shot but it made me gain a lot weight and cause me to have the worst depression ever.
then i switched to the pills.
the last time i was on the pill was July. i'm thinking about going back on it again but i want to know what brands are good…
i don't have insurance, so i always pay out of pocket💀 i use those BC delivery services!

Annon I'm on the same boat but I'm currently in the process of learning that it's me who's doing isolating.
Best advice is to step back and look at yourself and the way you interact with others, are you really alone IRL or are you pushing people away because you feel that they/you are unworthy? Are you actually putting in an effort to contribute to conversations or are you trying to bring attention to yourself?
also like many annons above said, get a hobby it's the easiest way to socialize especially if it's art related. You can go to your local community center (if you're American IDK if other countries have something similar) and join a club or activity they provide.
There's also charity work like soup kitchens if you want that quick short term boost of serotonin for feeling like your doing something good for society.

No. 124416

Wanting validation is fine and all but 4chan anon really? Maybe you lowkey know you'll be treated like that and do it on purpose so it confirms how shit you feel. If you want sexual validation, go on tinder. Or go on those woe is me subreddits, maybe even make up a crazy story, it's pretty easy to bait redditors lol

No. 124588

I got a piece of advice: "people can tell when others are asking for validation, and it's a huge turn-off." I stopped (why continue if it's having the opposite effect of what I want, right?). It was difficult. Now I feel a lot better. I get validated just as often, and it actually means something to me. 10/10 would recommend. Godspeed, anon.

No. 124601

Validation and attention is all about ego. Humans are social animals. If you try and feed the ego, you'll find it's never enough. This is why I disagree with anons who say the right path is looking inwards and validating yourself. In fact, what your ego is trying to compensate for is lack of connection to the world, belonging.

Here's my advice: pull your head put of your ass. Stop being so self-centred. Go help at a homeless kitchen. Volunteer at an animal shelter. Waltz into your local firefighter department and offer to answer the phone or do paperwork. Ask your elderly neighbour do they need help with something.

If you spend your entire time gazing up your navel, no wonder everything will seem dark and stinky. There is a whole beautiful wide world out there that NEEDS YOU. Be the force of light. Help others. It takes so little, it means so much. It changes lives. It changes you. People who do that are the ones that make this world worth living in. Go make this world worth living in.

No. 124885

Hey anon, I'm feeling a similar way. If you were to drop an email or discord I'd be happy to chat (unless youre a scrote).

rattan bag >>124217 anon here. thanks for all the suggestions. after hearing your opinions on the rattan bag, i decided to give it a shot, but i ended up finding an even better rattan/woven bag in the meantime! i absolutely love it, it ticks all the boxes i had and it's super cute. if anyone is interested it's called a "drawstring rattan bag" and you can find them for super cheap on ali.

What are some good shops that I could find a pretty formal dress for a wedding that's not too expensive? I just got notice today from my bf that we were invited to a coworkers wedding and it's in two weeks, I'm between jobs right now so I have a pretty conservative budget but I wanna look cute. Kind of freaking out about how soon it is! My style leans more vintage/boho/girly so I'm looking for something more along the lines of a flowy maxi dress rather than anything form-fitting. Any help would be appreciated!

Does anyone else have this problem? My legs look like they belong on a 60 year old woman because the fat just sags around the knees. How do I get rid of fat around my knees! I can’t wear cute mini skirts without looking like a pudgy toddler

No. 124273

I have this too, anon. Although I think bone structure has a lot to do with it as well (same as the hip dip issue). Personally my mom had similar distribution even when she was very athletic in her youth so I just have trash genes when it comes to legs. When I touch my knees I can even feel that the joints are just slightly more inward than they "should" be.
Accept your ugly legs anon!! Or get really strong so people feel threatened when they're exposed.

Broad hipped/hourglass shaped Anon here with ab lines. I don't mean to come off as humblebraggy but what I did is vacuum exercises or the "sucking in" thing, I also just ate a normal diet, like not too much, not too little but very nutritious, I like the Mediterranean diet but I do have my days where I want soda and junk but my metabolism is fast so it may be harder for those with slow metabolisms. I also have lots of sex like 2-3 times every other day or every three days or whenever my bf can come over. I only noticed my ab lines coming in the more I had sex

Is this just to improve circulation to the legs? It doesn’t seem to be strength training

Is it ever ethical to lie about your sexual past? I feel like I've dealt with a lot of shit and even though I've had tons of partners that's not who I am now.

Asking on lolcow because let's face it, most of us here have a phase or two where we've had sex with men we barely know, hooked up with losers, slept with men we met online etc. We've all been there so I want to know there's light at the end of the tunnel.

I'm just tired of that life now. Want to settle down.

lying to your partner or avoiding the question is absolutly immoral imo. you're hiding something that tells a lot about someone personality and is also something that is a big predictor of marriage success.

No. 123903

I can feel the frustration in this comment. Theres a moderation, between being a slut and being afraid of it.

There's nothing to be ashamed of, and you can't rush it.

People who are sensitive about it need a good first time more than anyone, a friend of mine had a bad first experience with a guy and she still has negative feelings because of it. It's important to recognize you're afraid, and instead of thinking punishing thoughts like that, come to an understanding that it's not your fault. You can work on it, even without a partner, in many ways.

No. 124221

The general social survey has been keeping track of the numbers of sexual partners in relation to marital happiness for decades. Virgins do have a happiness advantage. And yes. It benefits men to be virgins too. What's good for the goose is good for the gander.
I've never seen anything corrilating abuse with virgin marriage.
This may be an unpleasant subject. But you shouldn't live your life by statistics. You should just take them under consideration.

Hopefully this is the latest thread on the topic…

I wanted to recommend all anons struggling with the issue book in pic related. You can get it for free on libgen and it's super helpful if you commit to it. It's sort of like going through therapy by yourself. You have to do the exercises and take your time. The book not only helps you stop overshopping, but also find out wtf is wrong with you. I am not finished with it yet (to be honest, I have not even reached the halfway point…) but I am already really glad that I have found it! It's especially great if you like writing, as you will have to write down answers to many questions about your shopping habits.

I thought I would share it since I had issues finding a good self-help book on shopping addiction before someone recommended this one to me. If you are struggling with compulsive shopping, please give it a shot. It costs nothing and might help you a lot.

thanks so much anon, i'm going to look into this! i have been going crazy with spending on stuff i don't need or use so hopefully this will point me in the right direction.

I suffer from chronic fatigue syndrome all my life. I checked all doctors possible. I checked my thyroid, heart, blood, minerals and vitamins in blood. Nothing. Living like that is a hell. I don't even sleep that much, but I feel dizzy and have realy bad brain fog most of the time. There are times where I can function quite normally (i don't feel that dizzy and don't have that extreme brain fog), from one week to even month or two. But most of time i feel bad. I also have a big problems with short attenion span and weak memory.
Of course, I'm a neet now and I don't feel that's gonna change in the the near future.
I take NADH pills for now. I'm taking these for a few months. I don't feel any changes for now, but I'm gonna keep going.
If my life gonna look like that, I'm gonna kill myself when my parents will die. Fucking hell.

I have had chronic migraines for 14 years over half my life is how I haven't kms get but I recently started a biologic med called Ajovy that I think is helping with minimal side effects. I can't handle triptans at all n nothing relieved them besides this anti inflammatory shot the neurologist will give me when I go in with a bad migraine. Is I why they can't just prescribe that to me.

I also have some kind of auto immune issue that causes severe eczema all over that was truly he'll until I started a biologic called dupixent but I'm still extremely sensitive to Sun and heat that leaves me housebound most the time. I wanna move some place where it's dark and cold all the time..

All this shit has left me all sorts of fucked up I'm majorly depressed.

I had a life with a career and was self sufficient but then it got worse n worse and I had to move home.
Idk how I keep going.

That sucks, anon. Do either of your parents have it? That seems more common when it starts from childhood. I hate the name chronic fatigue syndrome. People tell me they get "tired" too or that I have the symptoms of depression

I can't sit up or stand more than a minute. I'm starting to lose the ability to communicate, because writing, reading, listening, and speaking cause such bad symptoms. It's scary to think of being trapped inside my body but conscious.

I hope research finds something for us.

You are more than likely attached to the only thing you consider safe even though it isn’t because it doesn’t allow you to grow in in a relationship.

No. 123646

Thanks. I don't think that's pathetic at all, if it brings you peace and makes you happy you shouldn't feel embarrassed about your coping mechanisms. There are much worse things to do to distract yourself than self-care.

I don't know if I'll ever get into a massive skincare routine but I should probably get back onto the basics, I've neglected myself a little too much lately due to stress. I really appreciate the support and advice.
