Contraception – the pill vs condoms

I was being put on the contraceptive pill a few years back after I lost my period. 

A few months later I went back to a general practitioner for a new prescription and she told me I had to stop taking this pill as it was taken off the shelves in other countries about a year earlier due to its higher risk of blood clots and other health problems. I stopped taking it and decided I would never go back on the pill.

However, I do believe that if you do find a contraceptive that works for you, it can be what you’re looking for as it does release period pain (because you in fact just get withdrawal bleedings, not periods) and it does balance out your hormones during the time you’re taking them. In some cases it even will actually reduce acne on some level as well. Though it is not a solution! Many practitioners and gynecologists prescribe the pill as a “solution” for acne and period pains, yet there is often an underlying issue and your contraceptive will just work as a bandaid in that case.

We are expected to take a pill that may have some benefits, but also have many risks involved along with a lot of playing around with our hormones, while the majority of men still dare to tell us they choose not to wear a condom because they “don’t like it”.

Just let me tell you this:

  • The pill won’t give you 100% protection from pregnancy
  • The pill won’t protect you from STD’s
  • A condom comes in sizes
  • A condom exists in anti-allergic non-latex variants

Do you have any more excuses not to use one?

Honestly when a man doesn’t want to use a condom, tell him to keep off having sex for a few more years and invest that time into educating himself.

It's okay if all you did today was breathe - Mondays can be extremely challenging for many people and can even trigger anxiety with many of us.

Your Vagina is NOT supposed to Smell Like Flowers

Your Vagina isn't supposed to Smell Like Flowers - it's supposed to smell like Vagina. “Flower scented” hygienic products like liners, pads or even scented perfumes are all over the shelves in our convenient stores, giving young women the message that our vagina is supposed to smell like flowers. Don’t be fooled, this is just another marketing trick to make you think you actually need these products to make your intimate area smell “better”.
