There are things that happen in life that I can't tell my friends and family about. However, a person can't keep everything inside!

Random Things I Can't Tell Regular People

Tuesday, April 5

Childfree (and loving it)

Every night at 12am,if you happen to be at our apartment, you'll hear my little alarm go off. This is my reminder to take my pill. I take it religiously. In the beginning, I didn't realise that you needed to take it around the same time every day, I would take it when I got up, be it 6am or noon. I'm glad I didn't get pregnant when I first got married. (I even forgot to take it the day after our wedding. Imagine getting pregnant your first time!)

Anyway, my husband and I don't plan on having children ever, so this pill ritual is very important. There are some good points about the pill, such as:
- 99% efficacy
- nothing to insert, roll on, take out or adjust
- partially subsidised by the government
- mainstream, no one really turns their head when they hear you're on the pill

However, I do not like messing with my hormones. I often feel like I'm betraying my body, which does such a good job on its own (by and large, at least. See here for it's betrayal of me!) I've researched more natural methods, but such is my desire to remain childfree, I wouldn't want to leave things to chance. Not to mention that my life is pretty irregular and measuring urine/spit samples daily isn't my cup of tea. And that the more fertile I am, the hornier I get!

Being in Canada, doctor's don't insert IUD's to women who have not yet had a child. I wouldn't want to use a barrier method, so I suppose pharmaceuticals are the best for me. Maybe when I'm thirty five they'll let me get my tubes tied...
