I wish I had to take birth control!

I apologize in advance because I am posting from my cell phone and there is no spell checker :)

Anyway, I wish I had to take birth control! Literally 2 girls in my first class got out their pill packs and popped their anti baby pills. I remember back in those days. I would beat myself up if I missed a day and come to find out it wouldn't have mattered anyway. Oh the money I would have saved... Let's just add it up. Over 5 years I tried numerous different kinds. I tried the shot once - $90 and the pill, patch and ring - $1026 (all $18 each month) and don't let me forget the condoms too... Harder to add up but we will estimate. I'm allergic to latex so they are more expensive... Maybe $12 a box. So condoms- $500... And I think that is low. Grand total is... $1616! Don't even get me started on what I have wasted on hpts over the years! Ugh.

Yeah, I don't even want to think of all the time, money, and worries I wasted over birth control. What a joke. I used to think for sure I'd be the one to end up pregnant if I missed just one day. Sigh.

I know just how you feel. If I added up all the money I spent on birth control in 12 years I would probably throw up.
