If you read earlier, you know that I officially went on birth control for the first time about half a month ago. I know, I’m super good with the calculations, but I don’t have the little pack with me, so I can’t count. I’m close to half way done.
So what is the update? Nothing. Seriously, nothing. I’ve had no side effects at all! No spotting. No bloating. I feel totally normal. Sometimes I wonder if it’s working at all. I was all prepared for the worst, but really, I haven’t had anything stand out as being caused by birth control.
I’m going to give it a huge thumbs up. We’ll see how my period goes. If it’s light, then I’m going to kick myself for not doing this sooner.
There is perhaps one thing, now that I think about it, that I didn’t think to attribute to birth control. That is my level of sexual desire. Lets just call it the level of how horny I am. In the last week, it’s been seriously crazy.
Now I’m no prude. I love a good roll around. I have a pretty active imagination and I’m comfortable talking about it. But this is extreme, even for me. I catch myself considering the people around me I’ve never considered before, and shouldn’t consider. I have to shake myself, and then go take care of myself. I’m not usually so…randy! I’m thinking it’s time to start dating again. I wanted to wait at least a month to make sure these little pills are working, but I’m not sure I can. Even now, sitting at my desk, writing this, I’m wondering if I should go onto POF and choose one of the guys who’s been talking to me, and just call him over. Usually I would talk myself into a few dates first. This could be dangerous.
