So, while some of you are getting ON BC, I am getting off of it. BEANIE
(we need a tagging system like facebook) might remember when I got it in I was freaked out and it tried popping out of my arm, and I was in a lot of pain. Removal wasn't nearly as bad, although there was a lot of scar tissue and it didn't want to come out. I can still feel the line of scar tissue under my skin where it used to be.
My transition to no more Implanon has been interesting. I was late for my scheduled period by like 2 or 3 weeks. Had ONE singular 30-second "OW WTF just kicked me in the uterus" moment, bled like crazy for 2 days, normal for another, and then it was gone. In four days. Poof.
I AM WEARING WHITE-CROTCH PANTIES AGAIN. I never knew how much random spotting ruled my life for 2 years.
Only some small pressure on my left ovary the last few days. Nothing like the horrors of my teenage PCOS, PMDD, etc, etc. But I haven't even gotten my second period yet. So we will see.
In the other girly things news, The Sea Moisture shampoo from Organix makes my scalp HURT and break out in tiny little itchy owie bumps.
My clinique foundation is sorta the best thing ever. And so is the They're Real mascara from Benefit.
My face is still clearing up, and is not as sensitive as it was on Implanon. So I am still using coconut oil, but some days a gentle foamy cleanser and a scrub too. My only problem is picking. 90% of my acne is gone. But I am still obsessing about picking at my face. The majority of it is blackheads/clogged pores, though, not actual pimples. Doesn't matter. Obsessive picking continues.
