Real talk: I honestly don't remember when I started using birth control pills, but I can't remember or even imagine my life before them. I have terrible periods - cramps that leave me unable to move, break outs, mood swings, heavy flow, and they last for at least a week. I've had to switch pills a few times to find the one (right now, Loestrin 24) that helps with most of my problems. I still have the cramps, but I'm only partially down for one day instead of my usual 2 or 3.
I think the only downside to birth control pills is having to remember to take them - at the same time every day. Luckily, Bedsider.org has you covered. They have reminders for not only your daily birth control, but also for doctor's appointments. You can find those reminders here - Bedsider.org.reminders.
Birth control pills aren't for everyone though. And that's totally okay too! There are so many options now for women to practice safe sex. Bedsider.org has you covered on the many different methods of birth control too - you can check those out here with their Method Explorer.
Honestly, I love being on birth control -- I feel so empowered by being able to live my life without being hindered by my cramps. I think that birth control, while also doing what the name says, can help out with a lot of different things. Birth control pills have also helped my acne, which has definitely boosted my self-esteem. My life has become infinitely better by being on birth control pills. I'm able to live my life the way I want it and I feel great about myself.
