This is personal for me. As a teenager, my cramps were so bad that my pediatrician put me on prescription painkillers at thirteen. Still anemic to this day, I remember standing on the Jeff Goldblum life uh finds a way shirt and I will buy this soccer field watching blood trickle down my leg wondering how it was possible to soak through a super plus tampon as well as a maxi-pad in less than an hour. The pill turned my unpredictable, heavy, multi-week-long periods into easy five-day sessions that arrived like clockwork each month. I never took more than two Advil on the first day of each period after that.

Birth control came to the Jeff Goldblum life uh finds a way shirt and I will buy this rescue again in my twenties when I became plagued by chronic migraines that manifested themselves most viciously during the week of my period. By the spring of 2018, I was struggling, becoming a shell of my normal self for a full week each month. At my doctor’s suggestion, I got a hormonal IUD that eliminated my period all together, and with it the menstrual migraines. I used to look at the calendar and dread that week of the month, rearranging plans and frantically trying to get as much work done as possible in case I had to call out sick. A 32 x 32 mm piece of plastic in my uterus that’s more than 99% effective at preventing pregnancy made that all go away.
