Our new Indie Games subforum is now open for business in G&T. Go and check it out, you might land a code for a free game. If you're developing an indie game and want to post about it, follow these directions. If you don't, he'll break your legs! Hahaha! Seriously though.
Our rules have been updated and given their own forum. Go and look at them! They are nice, and there may be new ones that you didn't know about! Hooray for rules! Hooray for The System! Hooray for Conforming!
I started taking oral contraceptives a year ago - TriCyclen Lo, to be exact. It worked just fine for me, no side effects or anything, but at my last checkup I asked my family doctor about the possibility of switching to a monophasic pill, so I could have more control over when I get my period. She thought that was a splendid idea, and gave me three months' worth of samples of Alesse 28, plus a prescription to use once I ran out of samples.
Last week was the placebo week for the TriCyclen. I got my period early in the week, as usual, and I kept taking the placebos (as usual). Then tonight, I took the first pill of Alesse. My question is, is there any lag time I need to worry about? My doctor didn't mention needing any additional contraception during the switch, but a couple of sites I skimmed online talked about the "rule of seven" when changing birth control (ie, it takes seven days for the new hormones to permeate your body, therefore use condoms or whatever until then).
Since I'm not 100% sure, I'm probably just going to hold off on conventional sex for a day or two until I can talk to an actual doctor, but if anyone else has had any experience with this, I'd love to hear it.
I'm here to tell you about voting. Imagine you're locked in a huge underground nightclub filled with sinners, whores, freaks and unnameable things that rape pit bulls for fun. And you ain't allowed out until you all vote on what you're going to do tonight [. . .] So you vote for television, and everyone else, as far as your eye can see, votes to fuck you with switchblades. That's voting. You're welcome.
