What’s the best birth control item for you? Are you allergic to any of the components? Which one is best balanced for your hormone system? Which ones won’t harm fertility in the long run? This is a list to use for muscle testing if there is a problem with your current contraceptive and for picking products that are better suited for your body. Often Planned Parenthood can give you great advice on the challenges with the wrong contraceptives whereas sometimes the local medical facilities won’t be able to diagnose those allergies.
