Ease Me In (The more guarded approach):
We’ve talked about the fact that I want to stop using my birth control because of the hormones, but there are lots of other good options out there that we can try.

Let’s look at this Birth Control Method Selector together to come up with a plan we feel good about.

Just Give It to Me (The no-nonsense tactic):
I’d like to stop using birth control so I can stop getting the hormones, but I know it worries you. Can you come to my next annual checkup and we can get the facts and discuss some other options with the doctor?
