The Pill

Birth control pills, better known as “the Pill” are prescribed meds that gURLs take on a daily basis to avoid getting pregnant. The pill can contain two hormones (estrogen and progestin) or just one hormone (progestin). The two hormone pill is the one most commonly used by gURLs and is called the “combination pill.”

    IM ON BIRTH CONTROL! lol obviously, I love it. I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo (big name lol) and I would always get nauseous whenever I started a new pill pack. but my college clinic put me on Aviane and now I have no symptoms at all. so it takes some weeding out to find which brands work best for you.
