It's About Time!

I've wanted to get on BC for a long time now and never did, mostly because of anxiety. When I was a minor, the only person who could take me was my dad and I was not about to have that conversation with him.

Then college started and I was too anxious to go. I know it sounds stupid but I didn't know how to make an appointment, what I would need, what people would think, and I hate the thought of getting lost in hospital areas. So I just never went.

But now, I'm having sex pretty frequently and I'd like to say I trust the man I'm with but withdrawal just isn't a good method, period. Plus he really wants to have a kid someday. I want to trust that he would never impregnate me on purpose and lie, but with things like that, it's too easy to be underhanded. I think that's what happened to one of the girls I used to work with - she didn't want kids and he kept talking about making a family and suddenly, she wound up pregnant.

So I (wo)manned up, made an appointment for my first annual gyno exam, and got my first prescription for Sprintec. I'm not going to use the first pill until my next period - I'm excited and worried at the same time. I'm worried about the side effects I might get, at least at first (nausea, weight gain, moodiness, headache, acne) but still, I'd rather have those than a baby bump.
