Wooh, so I just went in for my annual.

This was seriously the fastest pap smear I have ever gotten!! I felt like I was in an Indy pit-stop! The doc was male, and nice and very gentle and all of that, it was just so fast lmao XD. He shoved his fingers in there for the post-speculum exam faster than even I can get my fingers in there, and you know they use three!! Just slopped on some lube and went for it, I was like whoah! XD it made me chuckle inside.

So now I have a prescription for Depo, we'll see how I do on it. I have never had any reactions to the pill so I feel my chances of doing well on the shot are high. I'm lightweight and had long cycles off pills so my guess is I'll also get the benefit of having no period! I was going for Implanon but they just don't have it yet, too new. Oh well! Smile I haven't picked up my prescription yet, I probably will do it closer to when I go back to school.

I hadn't gotten my period after getting off the pills yet so I've been absolutely terrified for the past month. But, the test was negative (and I would have been 8 weeks so it definitely would've show) so I'm on cloud nine lol.

Two years, heh. My old cycle was 40 days long, and the period I got in the last week of placebos before I quit was light due to stress so that didn't help my panic and paranoia XD The doc said I might not even get one this month. So, I'm not worried anymore. GOD it feels so good Smile

Lol. I'm lucky that I feel no different on hormones than I do off of them. I actually get all the benefits and none of the side effects.

I was on the pill for 15 years. i am so glad to be free of hormones. (Excepet my periods are really heavy) I went to the annual exam last week too, and she taught me "Mayan Uterine Massage". So I got my period on Saturday and i was so crampy that i thought my uterus might have fallen on the floor. i looked around, and it wasn't there, so i figured it must've been cramps. I did the massage for 2 days, and BOOM no more cramps! Let's hope this continues!

Just to warn you about the shot. I know the post is kinda old but hopefully you'll see it.

I was on the shot for 4 years and only a few times I had a period. it was so nice, I loved it. But I had my last shot last November.

Well I bled for 30 days in January, and I had three 3day periods in Feb and 2 periods in March. Then I didnt bleed at all and finally in June I have a regular 5 day cycle.

But due to the shot I am now blessed with cramps. I never had cramps before the shot , ever!! I was very lucky.

But these cramps are so bad I take Vicoden for them. So be careful. My experience was horrible. I have friends and my mom where nothin bad happens.

So good luck
