So getting straight into it, I firstly wanted to chat about the pill. Why I am on it, whats good about it, whats bad about it and how it affects me.
When I was growing up I had a hard time with my periods, they are brutal! I remember being sick in the school car park, feeling so faint, and being sent home on a few occasions just because of how my period affected me. So I was put on the pill from about 15 (roughtly) to try and control my damn crazy body.
Did it help?
Simply, yes! I no longer dreaded that time of the month and I felt in control of my body again 🙂 happy days! As a bonus, when I got older and began to explore my sexuality I was already covered on the pregnancy front.
Any side effects?
Luckily for me I didn’t see any of the bad side effects I was told about such as weight gain. On the other hand, I didn’t see the side effect I was kinda hoping for at the time which was larger breasts (damnnn itttt!! 😉 better luck next time) !
Further down the line
I am now 23 and I am still on the pill, although I have changed from the one I was originally prescribed. It works well for me and my lifestyle which is great news 🙂
Any questions, please ask 🙂
