The Five Biggest Contradictions in Fitness

Itís no secret that when people contradict themselves, it has the effect of making the flaws in their actions or statements seem glaringly obvious. But what about when WE ourselves get caught contradicting ourselves by someone else?

    how effective, THE PILL

    my gf has been on the pill for a month now, taking it every day w/o missing a day... it's odd though, not having to wear a condom and all that, it's like, all this time we're trained on what NOT to do, and with the pill, it's okay..

    how many of your gfs/wife have been, or are on the pill.. w/o any problems or pregnancy? is it trully effective...

    The pill is supposed to be safe I have read. What happens if she forgets to take it though? My girl takes this http://www.depoprovera.com/
    It's once every 3 months and that's it, seems more reliable and easier from what I have read.

    Oh if she takes antibiotics I have heard the pill doesn't work, not sure if that is accurate.

    Brawl's right dude. Just because she started the pill doesn't mean you go plugging away raw. It's most effective after using it for 3 months.

    My girlfriend's been on it since June. Obviously no pregnancy problems, although I still always pull out for peace of mind and facial.

    In Memphis, it is illegal for a woman to drive by herself, unless a man is walking or running infront of the vehicle, waving a red flag in order to warn approaching pedestrians and motorists.

    The shot can mess some women up.

    If she forgets it 1 day she will still be protected I think. if not, the day she wont be, wont be the day she forgot it

    Obviously a girls input on this would be better since they tend to know more about these things. But I've dated girls on the pill and it's never been a problem. If they forget a day I dont think its a big deal as long as its not a regular habit. Ive dated a girl that had the shot too and never had a problem. You're right though, it is weird to not have to worry about 'going' and to not have to wear a condom. The only thing is, if a girl wanted you to get her pregnant she could stop taking the pill not tell you. That happened to a buddy of mine. But I don't think most girls would do that.

    if she forgets, she should take it as soon as possible. if she doesn't remember until the next day, she should take two pills at the same time as soon as she remembers. if she forgets more than one day in a month, then the cycle is screwed up. the pills should be taken as normal AND a backup method should be used in conjunction for the remainder of the cycle.

    normally when the pills are prescribed, her doc should go thru all the "what if" stuff. the info would also accompany the pills in the instruction packet, and also, the pharmacist can answer all those questions as well.
