I had a miscarriage due to stress at my job, and was in a serious relationship when I decided to take birth control for the first time in my life. I was living with my boyfriend at the time, and it seemed like the way to go, to prevent another miscarriage. The first couple months were okay, and my doctor said to stick it out for three months and it will get better. I learned to ignore the anger, a ... Show Full Comment
