Question
HI, IM 37 YEAR OLD. WITH 1 CHILD. I WAS DIAGNOSED WITH HELLP SYNDROM WITH MY LAST CESSAREAN AND WAS SERIOUSLY ILL. SINCE THEN IM ON TENORMIN FOR MY BLOOD PRESSURE. I WOULD LIKE TO WHICH CONTRACEPTIVE IS SUITABLE FOR ME AS I CANT TAKE ANY HORMONAL . THANKS.

Answer
I received your question in the question pool at allexperts.com
I am sorry to hear of your story. I feel that hormonal contraception is unhealthy anyway so I usually recommend condoms or Natural family planning. Neither of these is 100% safe in preventing pregnancy but neither are hormonal methods. To find out more about Natural family planning, go to http://www.ccli.org
Or do a search for Natural family planning on line. Please email me at CHERYL51@aol.com so we can talk privately.

Sincerely,
Diane Cheryl
