First Comes Love, Then Comes Marriage, THEN Comes…Other Stuff

 “Never go to bed angry.  Stay up and fight.”
-Phyllis Diller

Sooooo, the fun part about getting married when you don’t want kids and haven’t been sexually active?  Screwing (no pun intended) with your hormones.  Time for birth control.  I did my research and decided to start with The Pill first.  I’ve always wondered why those letters get capitalized, but I digress.  I also told J. to DIPLOMATICALLY inform me if my mood or weight decides to to freak out.

Science has never produced anything nearly as effective.  But I don't recommend it.

Fun Facts!  There is a 8/100 failure rate, something I initially panicked over and asked the doctor about and she laughed.  “Pills generally fail when you don’t take them,” she said.  “The failure rate when taken correctly is less than 1%.”  Good.  Now let’s just pray that I’m not extremely fertile.  And apparently, most women who gain weight on the pill do so not because of drastic chemical changes, but because they start eating more.  Feeling pregnant makes you eat.  Huh.  Geniuses, in the medical community, geniuses.

  1. C!
    I did not know that you were engaged when I first started reading this. So, I scrolled down to your Feb 9 post, which I had somehow missed, and read the good news.
    Congratulations girl!!! You never thought you would see this day. I am so happy for you. You will love being married- it’s fantastic. Really!
