So my gf and I have sex alot using condoms, she isn't on the pill nor injection. I haven't spoken to her about it but it seems a little odd as her friends are all on some kind of birth control. Tbh I don't know too much about the pros and cons of birth control if it was me I know I would find it a pain in the arse to take 'the pill' every day and it can be useless if taken improperly, when ill etc? So to me injection sounds like a winner all round so why isn't it as popular? (in my experience..) could my gf have other reasons for not having either? I suppose the best way to know is to ask but if I do ask how should I go about it? as straight forward as "Have you considered taking the pill or having the injection?" or is there better ways of bringing this up? The other thing is we have only been together 3 months does this seem like too much of a commitment at this early stage or the sensible option (she has had other boyfriends before I am assuming she has never had any birth control.) No I dont want babies.
