As you can see on the box, you take exactly one pill per day. To make sure it works, you need to take one pill every day at the same time, or it stops working. You take only one pill, and…
I also have ovarian cysts and have to take birth control. It is expensive and I have learned that when I go to the doctor next month my birth control will be covered in my insurance policy BECAUSE of Obama care. Right now I pay for it out of pocket and it is very expensive and still not even very effective because I have to take an even more expensive brand. I do not have sex. The reason I take birth control has absolutely NOTHING to do with sex. I take it because without it, I am anemic. The last time I tried managing my condition without birth control I came hours away from losing my uterus completely and needing a transfusion due to blood loss.
If contraception is banned (though I sincerely doubt it will be) then there is no way to treat my disease which could even progress into cancer, without having to cut out my uterus. And if THAT isn’t birth control then I don’t know what is. I’m an incredibly infuriated that there even IS a debate about contraception. I’m infuriated that people who don’t even know me and who don’t know that contraception actually SAVED my reproductive organs not even two months ago want to take it away from me.
Hey you guys! I was able to realize my goal for that insurance that I need thanks to so many of you. I’ve applied and paid for it and it should kick very soon and I’ll be able to go to the doctor for real and see what’s wrong with me. No worse, nor better on the health status which could be a good thing seeing as I’m not getting MORE sick. Thank you all so much for your generosity and support and to my amazing friends who dropped everything to do anything that they could for me and who are constantly checking up. It truly, truly means the world to me. I really wouldn’t be in a good spot if it weren’t for every single one of you. Thank you, from the bottom of my heart. I’ll keep everyone updated on diagnosis and that sort of thing when it finally comes.
