Birth Control Win!
As someone who has been on some form of contraceptive since I was 17, I feel a strong need to share my experience and JOY at finally finding my perfect BC (only Fing 6 years later). First I was on OrthoTriCyclin Lo which made me chunk out. I mean, I already want to put everything over the recommended serving of sugar and carbs into my mouth but on OTC Lo I COULD NOT RESIST!!! Then I moved on to the Neuva Ring, dropping about 8lbs in the first month -SCORE-. I thought I had found a gift from Gods Vagina until I realized that I was an idiot who can’t keep track of a three week time span, resulting in me forgetting to remove said Neuva Ring and a labia shaking vag infection. *tear* So then it was YAZ for me and another unwelcome 10lbs.
So I am sure most of you are more competent that I am and therefore can gage every month WHEN your period is coming (which if you are on BC should only be a matter of what color pill you are popping), but I am like a Fing digbat puppy around that time of the month! Flouncing around in lightly colored skirts and shorts, dreaming of sugarplums in a land where periods don’t even EXIST when *BAM* I wake up… bleeding all over my boyfriends white sheets. I must give the credit for finding Seasonale to my boyfriend who said “Isn’t there something where you only have a period, like, 3 times a year? Can’t you just do that?”—-Lightbulb!
Seasonale (and really I’m talking about the generic shit, b/c mama’s broke) is a gift from Gods Vagina. My boobs are looking “juicy” according to said boyfriend, and I have already kocked off about 5lbs. Just a nugget of wisdom for you ladies out there. And for the men with stained sheets, we love you.<3
