While the novel coronavirus has turned things upside down in so many ways for so many people, it has also given many of us an opportunity to reflect on the big and small aspects of our lives that we’re thankful for. These seven people are giving a shout-out to their birth control.


Every time I see a tweet about having your period during this pandemic, I think about how grateful I am to have a period-suppressing IUD. I know it’s not a solution for everyone, but I love that piece of plastic so damn much.

I signed up for my birth control to be delivered to my house and I feel so relieved that I don’t have to worry about it anymore 😌

Because of COVID-19 I gave myself my own birth control shot and I feel like a bada** and thats all.

As I walked my dog around the complex today, I heard children and parents screaming at each other through 4 different windows. I went home and kissed my birth control pack.
