Jill Duggar recently, made some personal revelations on a Q&A video posted on YouTube on Wednesday morning. She and her husband decided to sit for a transparent conversation with their fans, during which Jill revealed that she uses a non-hormonal birth control.
″We use birth control, but we prefer to use non-hormonal birth control methods because we don’t want to use anything that could potentially cause an abortion,″ said Jill in the video. ″I think there are probably uses for hormonal birth control for like regulating things and stuff like that, but for us we just want to be careful about that.″
″We’re more natural-minded and sometimes there can be more longer lasting effects from hormonal birth control and stuff like that so we just steer clear of those,″ she continued. ″Eventually we want to have more kids and stuff — lord willing — so we don’t want to mess too much with all of that and potentially cause problems.″
″We’ll probably stop using birth control whenever we want to get pregnant,” Derick added.
In another video they released the previous week, the couple opened up about a variety of decisions that Jill’s made in recent years, including wearing pants, chopping off her long locks, getting a nose ring, participating in therapy and being open to getting a tattoo.
The pair also mentioned that they are planning for more kids in the future, but not as of now.
″Yes, like Derick said, we would love more kids if God chooses to give us more. And secondly, how many? I don’t know. I don’t know that we have a number. Probably not 20 kids,″ said Jill.
They further added that they might as well have a possibility of adopting kids.
″But again, we’re not going to rule anything out. If God has us run an orphanage or something, then maybe we’d have more than that! I don’t know,″ said Jill. ″So we’ll see. Derick’s mom was adopted, so adoption’s always had like a place in our heart — a special place in our heart. But we’ll see. We’re not saying no, never or anything yet.”
