In honor of #BirthControlDay, I figured it was time to share my story... . . I was a pretty smart student with awesome grades, took AP classes, played sports, had a ton of friends, and thought I'd be going to university right out of high school. Fact is that I could've, but I wasn't taking care of myself nor did I have easy access to birth control. . . . I was in an on again, off again relationship with Jacob's dad for 7 years before getting pregnant with him at 19, then becoming a single mom at 20. All those hopes, dreams, and expectations went out the window. At 23 I decided I still wanted to pursue a degree so I enrolled in an online college so I can continue to work full-time to provide for my son. . . . At 24 I became a step-mom to Aubrey when James and I got together, and at 26 we welcomed our surprise baby Alani into the world. As much as I love my life and ADORE my children, being a mom, wife, student, and employee full-time has not been easy. It's taken me twice as long to finish college. If I knew then how hard it would've been, I definitely would've planned better and taken care of myself. But women's healthcare wasn't easy to come by for me at the time. . . . Now thanks to the digital age and advances in women’s healthcare, I've discovered an app called @nurxapp to help plan the rest of our future. Nurx offers access to affordable healthcare nationwide to those with or without insurance. They also provide health screening kits to take tests at home making women's health care convenient, affordable, and judgement free. . . . We haven't decided if we will be adding another tiny soul to our family just yet, but thanks to Nurx we can plan ahead for our future. Click the link in my bio for more info. . . . What did your journey to motherhood look like? #ad #ThxBirthControl

This app sounds a great way to plan ahead. I won’t be adding no more babies but this is helpful to my younger friends of mine. I will definitely pass it along.

I got off on birth control to help my acne In high school, then after my wedding decided to start cleansing it out of my system but didn’t start actively trying until a year later ❤️
