Hello ladies - so my body's been acting wonky recently, and I finally went to my gyno, and she gave me another form of The Pill. She also reminded me that The Pill doesn't work when you're on antibiotics. I remember, because I learned that the hard way (tested positive, pregnancy spontaneously terminated itself within 2 days. Those were a fun 2 days). I was wondering whether anyone else had BC advice they would like to dispense?

Oh - my other one is that condoms don't necessarily prevent the spread of herpes.

One thing my mother never taught me about being a girl was....?
Being a woman is a beautiful thing and to respect myself. Growing up my mother had her run ins with horrible men because she lacked the confidence to look for better...

One crazy, interesting thing about you? Well... I did a program called Katimavik (www.katimavik.com), which is a volunteer program for Canadian youth between the ages of 17-21. I traveled for nine months, living in three different provinces volunteering and rooming with my 10 other room mates... It was the hardest, craziest, most memorable part of my life thus far..

Thank you for the add ladies. I am looking for forward to posting more and asking question :)

Much love,


P.S - I hope I did this right :)

I have to say the people who thought to package a wet wipe with a maxi pad are brilliant people!

Strechmark treatment [06 May 2007|09:08pm]

[ mood | cranky ]

In a nutshell, I take medications that cause my cute little bod to blow up on occasions like the Goodyear Blimp, so I get tons of strechmarks. While they're forming, they itch in the most annoying, irritating, makes-me-want-to-pull-my-hair-out types of ways. I've almost been bathing in cocoa butter creams, and it helps temporarily, but I was just wondering if there's anything else any of you ladies use/do/recommend to relieve the itching or help my skin in anyway?

Or failing that- what's your best general strechmark advice for the public?

Mine- I like to use little cocoa butter cream sticks. They're less mess than lotions or just slathering from the jar and you can just smooth them wherever you need them.
