I just started my birth control today and I’m really nervous. Nervous about what I consider to be an “adult” thing when I don’t really consider myself much of an adult at all.
I’m nervous about the side effects; potential blood clots, gaining weight, painful menstruation. The spotting doesn’t really concern me much, that already happens. I suppose I’ll just have to adopt a really healthy lifestyle in order to combat those issues. But while I am extremely worried, I’m also happy about having something to regulate my period and also, NO BABIES!!
So you know, pros and cons.
