    17 Things Everyone Who's Ever Been On The Pill Will Understand

    Oh, birth control.

    1. Setting an alarm on your phone...

    I love my birth control reminder app

    2. ...and snoozing it multiple times...

    i measure my life in the 9-minute snooze intervals of my birth control alarm

    3. ...every day.

    *birth control alarm goes off for the 5th time* me: get up and take the pill me to me: just push snooze again

    4. Blaming the Pill for literally everything.

    Literally blame everything on the pill... "I'm so sorry I'm late for work, I'm on the pill"…


    5. Mood swings? Definitely the Pill.

    "You can't blame your shitty attitude on the pill" fucking watch me

    6. Weird cravings? The Pill for sure.

    7. Despite all your complaining, being grateful for any relief it brings...

    Birth control 👏🏼 stops my 👏🏼 excruciating pain 👏🏼 + scar tissue 👏🏼 cementing 👏🏼 my organs together 👏🏼 you thick 👏🏼…

    8. ...and the fact that it stops you from having children.

    I mean, how the hell am I supposed to handle birth if I can't even handle cramps now?? 😫😭

    9. Always struggling to get the pill out of the packet...

    the feeling when you get a pill out of a blister pack, aka I've Just Killed Something With My Bare Hands, And I Feel So Alive

    10. ...and feeling your heart stop when you drop it on the floor.

    11. Hating yourself when you keep forgetting to take it.

    *forgets to take my birth control once*

    12. Having the luxury of feeling secure.

    13. Getting a new type and deciding to educate yourself.

    14. Feeling slightly uncomfortable when telling other doctors...

    Not quite sure why my eye doctor needs to know the specific reason I'm on birth control but, ok.

    15. ...but, for the most part, having zero shame.

    16. Realizing that taking birth control is the only semi-responsible thing you do...

    Everyone is pregnant and getting married and yesterday I took my birth control with a corona

    17. ...and being pretty proud of yourself for it.

    The amount of pride/responsibility I feel every time I remember to take my birth control makes me feel like I'd be an incredible mother.
