karl wants the very best for me, and he isnt grossed out by me! i dont get it. were both adults. i mena, he knows i have a period. its part of being my life partner?!
also, since i began to use cloth everything and really respect my bodily functions by placing importance on even the smallest aspect of how i care for myself, i feel so much better. like most american girls, i was raised to think my period was disgusting. now i know better, and i realize how that attitude permeates every part of your self esteem. it isnt obvious, but it does. birth and breastfeeding and everything has helped me recover from it.

So keep that in mind if you think you have a reaction and are on birth control it most likely will stop after you are no longer taking any BC.
