Mackenzie Douthit, of 16 & Pregnant, made it clear on the show that she was not a fan of birth control because of the negative effects it has on her body. This led to her and her boyfriend, Josh, welcoming son Gannon into their lives at a young age. So did having a baby change Mackenzie’s feelings about birth control?
When a fan asked, “Are you expecting a lot of backlash after the reunion for not being on birth control?” she replied, “lol I really don’t care. Me and Josh are choosing not to have sex, and birth control messes with my blood sugars.”
Mackenzie and Josh are currently engaged. She is still tumbling and he is still in the rodeoÂ—perhaps their risky hobbies make it less tempting to have risky sex!
Watch Mackenzie Douthit, her fiancÃ© Josh, and the rest of the cast of season four on Tuesday night’s episode of 16 & Pregnant: Life After Labor. Dr. Drew is sure to have plenty to say about this teen mom not being on birth control!
