If you're someone who uses birth control, chances are you have a very good reason (or several reasons) for using it.
That's because birth control is not one-size-fits-all. There is no one method that's perfect for everyone, and there's no one reason to take it.
So we want to know: Why do you use birth control?
Maybe you take the pill to regulate your periods or treat your acne.
Or maybe hormonal birth control helps to treat a serious, life-altering disorder like endometriosis or PCOS.
Maybe you use condoms because avoiding pregnancy and STIs are both top-of-mind for you right now.
Or maybe birth control lets you work your ass off on all the things you want to accomplish before you start a family.
Whatever your reason for whatever method you use, we want to hear about it.
