    Thank you so much for responding. Your comment means a lot and has hit hard. I think I really need to consider a few things.

    Thank you also for telling me I have done nothing wrong. I feel guilty about my reservations towards him regarding this behaviour, and I even feel guilty posting here about it. Thank you so much. It means so much.

    Thank you so much for your kind response. It means the world. Your empathy and compassion is so lovely. It really means a lot that you care. I think you’re right.

    It was my boyfriends idea to go on birth control (he wanted to have sex without condoms) but it was my gynaecologists idea to go on the IUD. I had cancer when I was 14 so my gynaecologist recommended the IUD as apparently the pill increases the risk of breast cancer, and she didn’t want to take the chance when I was still waiting for my 5 year cancer free mark.

    In short, it was (according to her) the best option as I have a really bad history with periods (I was diagnosed with endometriosis this year via keyhole surgery) and a history of cancer.

    Thank you again for your kind comment xx you are an amazing person and I appreciate the time you took to respond. <3
