I always feel really gross when I’m on my period. I don’t believe it has anything to do with societal views of menstruation being unspeakable. I just feel gross.

I’d been on the pill since the start of December 2013. So about 9 months, and I still couldn’t skip my period successfully.
I went to my GP after March to try to change the pill I was on, hoping a different one would be better for me because Levlen obviously was not working correctly with my body; my GP refused. Continue reading »
