Our relationship with birth control is one of “can’t live with it, can’t live without it.” On the day-to-day, the little pill we pop in cases we carry around like wallets is really no biggie at all. But, miss a day or two and enter complete panic, which is followed by mass texting to all your pill-popping friends about the odds of you’re potential pregnancy, and then hysteric phone calls to your lady doctor.

If you’re on The Pill, chances are that you’ve muddled your birth control on more than one occasion, whether intentional or not. Sometimes we wonder…why are we on this thing again? And then, as if by “Teen Mom ” magic, a swollen woman, pushing two strollers with another crying baby in her arms, passes us by and we think, “Oh, okay. THAT’s why.”

*Always be safe and try not to mess with your B.C. But, if you do, chances are you had a very good reason:

Forgot What Day Of The Week It Is

If you can’t remember what day it is, chances are you didn’t remember to take your birth control either.


Temporarily Believed It Was Making You Fat
