New year, new me? That isn’t so much for me in terms of all the changes I want to make. We’re always changing and striving to do better. But there’s new year, “same me” which really only applies when I’m joking.

Birth control has made a world of difference for me when it comes to my periods. I’ve briefly touched on how my body reacts to my period. I started birth control my freshmen year of high school. I didn’t have the diagnoses of PCOS and endometriosis, but I’m glad that I was already doing one of the main ways to make it manageable, birth control. I’ve been grateful for it ever since.
