Let us now praise the power of The Pill
I love my Pill.
I do. Of all my medications, it may be my favorite. It's benefits are multitude.
No more PMDD. Now, instead I get about two days of moodiness and cravings for ice cream. Used to, I would get two weeks of being possessed by a monster.
No more cramps! Before, I was living on ibuprofen for a week each month. Three pills every four hours. Now? Now, I may need a dose on the first day, but that's it.
Crazy light periods. They've never been very heavy, but now? So light, I can't remember the last time I had to buy tampons or pads. Some days, I can literally go without anything because it's so light it's barely noticable. Whoohoo.
My breasts don't hurt! I have bad, bad, BAD fibrocystic breasts. Basically, that means I've got lots of fluidy lumps in my boobs. And they hurt. All the time. At least, they were getting to that point. My boobs are huge, frankly and the larger they are, the more likely they are to get all cysty. They were getting to the point were they hurt all the time, not just during my period. I was contemplating wearing a bra to sleep in, in order to keep them from keeping me awake at night. So, since I've been on the pill? No more pain! A little tenderness, but no pain! You have no idea, unless you've been through it, how incredibly painful they were. So now? Long live the pill!
No more ovarian cysts. I used to get them fairly frequently and you know what? They hurt too! I'm particularly sensitive, apparently, so even the ittybitty less than a centimeter ones would hurt me. Hmp. But they're gone now! Whoohoo.
Plus, my skin is clearer. Took it a few months for that bennie to kick in, but now my skin is much much better.
Oh yeah, there's also the No Baby effect. Can't beat that :)
So, long live the Pill! Whoohoo!!
