1) Does it hurt? my doctor says its "uncomfortable", but he's a guy- IMO, that completely negates what he says. He doesn't have a vagina, ffs. >.< I've got two tattoos, and one of my friends says that if I could handle the tattoos I can handle this. Is she right? I'm SO nervous. I'm literally all squicked out just typing about this. :(
2) Birth control- Is it healthy to stack BC pills? I admit I do this quite a lot. (my period is REALLY painful), and stacking them sometimes helps, except sometimes I randomly get my period while I'm ON my BC. Does anyone know why that is? Is it normal? Should I stop stacking them altogether?
3) I read that medically, we don't really *need* to have a period unless we are actively trying to get pregnant. Is this true? It seems....un-natural to not have a period to me, even though I HATE my period and I kinda wish my uterus had an on/off switch. :P
Can anyone help with this? :)
