    Hannah, thank you for this wonderful post. As someone in a relatively-similar situation (recently married, 26-years-old, employed in a 9-to-5 while my husband finishes grad school), I find it extremely refreshing to talk to other women who don’t have children on the radar. My husband and I will likely have children someday, but they probably [...]

    Same sentiments as above. Apologies for the belated posting. This is one of those moments when I am infinitely happy to be Canadian. I started taking oral contraceptives (the generic of Marvelon, aka: Apri) a few months before becoming sexually active. A few months prior, I had developed debilitating, “dear Lord I’m going to pass [...]
