I have birth control envy.
You know how some girls look at a penis and wish they had one?
That’s the way I feel about birth control. I wish there was more access to birth control options in my country, the Philippines.
I first felt the pangs of birth control envy at the not-so-tender age of 24. I had been living in the Philippines for 12 years and returned to the Bay Area to re-connect with some girlfriends in grade school.
