Oh Boy

So: I first got my period at 10. I didn’t notice anything until I was almost 12. The pain I got when I first noticed was horrible; horrible to the point where I couldn’t move (a 9.5 on a scale of 1-10). I didn’t start birth control until I was 16. The pill I was on worked until August of 2021. I finally changed to the vaginal ring last month and so far it’s worked wonders.
