"I actually went to Planned Parenthood. I was getting really bad migraines. My doctor put me on a progestin-only pill instead of an estrogen pill because she thought it would help with the headaches. She didn’t tell me actually, that I wasn’t going to get my period. The progestin-only pills are active everyday so you don’t get your period. So ever since then I’ve really enjoyed not having my period. I just stayed on that kind of pill ever since….I just feel free. I don’t have to worry about the bleeding….I don’t feel like it has taken away my womanhood at all. If anything I feel like it is in my hands. It’s in my control. I can decide if I want my period or not, and I don’t."
