update on the continuous pill

hmph. well. maybe it's not the dream solution i thought it would be. after almost two straight months of taking the hormone-laden birth-control pills continuously (i.e. without the typical monthly week off), i confess that i've been experiencing a tiny bit of "spotting" recently. maybe my body likes bleeding more than i thought. (lord only knows why.) this could also explain why i was so freaking weirdly emotional over the weekend - i cried at therapy, i totally sobbed through a preview for this new movie about 9/11, and i got in a terrible mood and picked a fight with my boyfriend. so maybe i'm having a bit of pseudo-PMS. i'll wait a while to see if this stuff clears up on its own. if it gets too annoying, i guess i could go back to having a period every two or three months - if i must.

    I heard that NPR story too. I was very excited, but apparently all those lady OBGYNs they interviewed forgot to mention that instead of having your period for 1 week, you get to "spot" for 3 months. Why did they lie to me?
