3. I hope this happens during my fertile years
I'm a woman and have been on hormonal contraceptives since I was 18 years old. First, it was The Pill for several years, then DepoProvera for the last 6 or 7.

I'm married, and both my husband and I are pretty certain we want to remain child free for the rest of our lives, but not sure enough for us to get clipped and stiched--that's why i'm on BC.

I would LOVE to give my body a break from the estrogens and progesterones it's been given for the last 12 years. LOVE LOVE LOVE.

I understand that alot of people (single, young, not-so-monogamous) would be warry about whether a guy REALLY took his pill, but there's quite a few young women out there (single, young, not-so-monogamous) that aren't strict about taking THEIR pills either--I was one of them, and that's why I switched to Depo---I would forget to take a pill, then forget that I forgot, remember 4 days later and ....ooops...that's too long of a stretch to just pick up where you left off.

I'm married and in a terminally monogamous relationship. I don't worry about my husband trying to sabatoge me or our future by saying 'yeah, I took the pill' or 'yeah, I got the shot" when he didn't. And MILLIONS of other men and women are in our situation---whether married, or just long-term committed couples.

I think this is great, and it should have been something developed A LONG FUCKING TIME AGO.

I just hope it comes around while I'm that we can at least use it for a while just to be able to tell our kids that we did.
