Your story is powerful. Not only does it connect you to a community of people with similar experiences, but it allows us at adyn to understand you better. We want to use your story to prioritize our research to be as inclusive and people-driven as possible. Sharing your story will help us close the medical gender research gap that has made birth control selection so painful.
We believe that you should no longer have to choose which birth control will make you the least miserable, but that you should be able to choose one that will make your life better. So let’s hear your story, the good the bad and the messy, and let’s work together to make birth control better for everyone.
“I have always felt in the dark about my choices. I started with the implant about six years ago and had the most unpredictable periods. I was bleeding for more weeks than I wasn't.”
- Gabby (24)
“The first time I was put on birth control I was 17 years old. I was getting a depo shot every three months. Being on depo caused me severe mood swings, depression, anxiety and I lost about 15 pounds.”
“I've tried multiple different birth controls with all of them giving me bad side effects. Most birth controls I have tried cause my mood to change drastically. A couple that I have tried also made me gain weight.”
