Dear Poll: Do You Feel Relieved When Your Period Comes?

Assuming you aren't ready to have kids, you're most likely using some sort of birth control. But since condoms are only 85 percent effective, and IUCs and the pill are 99 percent effective, there is that small chance you could still get pregnant. So with that said, waiting for your period to come can be a nerve-wracking event. And even though getting your period and suffering through everything that comes with it isn't fun, when I'm sexually active, I'm almost elated when it comes! Are you ladies with me in this one? Do you get that relieved, excited feeling when your monthly friend comes even though you're using protection?

I stopped taking birth control almost a year ago because i bled for months straight, my moods were out of control and I felt pain all the time. I don't use any protection with my boyfriend and I honestly don't freak out about my period not coming. I worried more while I was on the pill. I have a silly app on my phone that calculates ovulation days so I watch out around that time. I also have really painful periods so I hate when it comes.

Well, I found out that it is really hard for me to get pregnant, just because of the way my body works, and I'm on the pill, so I don't worry necessarily. I'm aware of when my period is supposed to come, but I don't feel relieved and I don't pace around waiting for it.

I've been through a lot with my body, so I know it well enough to know if I were pregnant or not. I admit, I've had a few scares, despite being on birth control, but I'm confident my body will let me know the instant I become pregnant. I'm that in-tune with it.

I've been on the Pill for 14 years (and am getting ready to go off it and start a family), so I never really worried about whether or not I'd get my period. It's pretty much like clockwork.

Yes, I'm always a little happy when it shows up :) pinkprincess1101, my SO and I used the pull out method for 3 years and never got pregnant. Now I'm on the pill though.

I've been scared a few times but I have and IUD and I'm pretty confident in the over 99% protection.

I always feel kind of unhappy about it. I don't know. I hate my period so whatever. ;p I worry because I might be infertile due to the injection so although it's nice to have it there... it might not be indicative that anything is going on down there. I'm about to stop using condoms and begin the combined pill at the start of my next cycle. Yippee, more hormones. ;p 85% effective? Really? Is that because so many retards use them incorrectly?

before i got on the pill i had really weird cycles. most of the time it would come every other month. a couple of times it didn't come for 4 months! so i got on the pill and thankfully, it comes pretty much on time each time.

Well my boyfriend is finishing college now, I'm in Turks Island and he is in Egypt so each month my friend comes I'm have a more expected feeling than a relieved one because I cant explain a baby without the baby making process so should she not come it's to the doctors office I go. For me it's no birth control, no sex and no kids... FOR NOW~*~

My biggest fear right now is getting pregnant! I'm like super paranoid about it because I'm in law school and am in no way ready or able to have a child. So with that said I am always so relieved when I get my period. I'm on the pill, but I'm not so great at remembering to take it at the same time every day so when I am having sex I always worry. I used to be on Loestrin, the pill where you have shorter periods and after a while I wasn't really getting my period at all. And my gyno was like yeah with this pill you can spot for like a day and not even notice and thats your period. So being on that pill definitely wasn't helpful in making sure I'm wasn't knocked up!

Once I was sexually active I was always a little relieved when my period came, no matter how careful I was. Now Im married and we arent trying for a baby just yet, but Im getting to the point where Im a little disappointed when it comes, even though we arent trying and Im still on the pill. Stupid right? I guess it just means that Im pretty ready emotionally.

im alaways excited the first day i get my period since fiance and i do not use protection, we've been having sex for 3 1/2 years and no baby yet, we use the pull out method, please dont try this at home, this has worked for us and may not for others
Kristinh1012 Kristinh1012 9 years
NO not at all. I had my tubes tied, so I feel like there is NO reason for me to even have a period. It's more of an annoyance than anything.

I'm on the pill and don't really think about it. I've never been late, though. That would freak me out tremendously.

Yeah! For the first few months when I started birth control, I freaked out EVERY month. Like, I would be "expecting" it on Wednesday morning and by noon I would frantically IM my friends from work like, oh my god, is this normal??? And then it would arrive by the time I got home. Random funny thing... my friends and I would always say that we were hooking up with Tom when we were on our periods (Time Of Month), and then I started dating my boyfriend whose name is Tom... oh the confusion that caused!!

My period starts saturday morning after I start my Yaz placebos on wednesday. One month my period didnt start til Sunday, and I was so scared! But I'm more worried about getting STDs than a baby. Oh and my periods are horrible... when I 1st started on birth control I thought they were shorter and lighter, but I just think that was wishful thinking. The only benefit with the pill is that I know exactly when my period will come.

Hell, even when I wasn't in a relationship, I was excited when it came. It reminds me everything is running normal :) I've just started on the pill and I'm loving that it's gonna be regulated now!
