Something I Will Regret

But I do feel it needs to be said. After having said this, I will retreat to my bunker until the rage ceases but I just have to say it.

If you are a reproductive female, get on the Pill please. It makes life so much simpler and much less painful and much less messy. Everything runs like clockwork too so you can plan your activities months in advance. Easy peasy. Just imagine periods that even you do not notice. Talk about freedom! No mood swings, no blood, no bloat - hey the only 'downside' is you cannot get pregnant because you already are - kinda.

Everyone's experiences are different, naturally, but I was on both high and low dosages for quite a few years and - basically - no periods! PARTY TIME! Both before and after my kids. No muss, no fuss, no problem and yeah I smoked, drank, and generally misbehaved dreadfully. And the Pill is cheap.

So if you can, take it. And now I shall gracefully retire inot my bunker and contemplate the diminished guest list for my parties. Because chances are if it happened around this time this month - it will happen around this time next month - ad infinitum.

If your family has a history of cancer, and you smoke, you should not take the pill. Thank you.

They have a fairly new "pill" out now. Historically women were pregnant most of there adult life (ages 15-30). Pregnant would have been the normal status for an adult woman.

They now have a pill that make the cycle extend to 3 months . That would be only four periods a year.

Not that know, but it sounds better than 12 per year.

Phineas is right though, for those of us with certain histories or issues, the pill isn't an option. The shot makes you gain excessive ammounts of weight, and the patch doesnt stick.

they need something new

In any case, ladies you will be dealing this for this for quite some time - so do please take steps to effectively control not only birth control but also the periods themselves. Having a period should never interfere with one's pleasures.
