We love the love letters to contraception EngenderHealth shared through their WTFP?! campaign. Their clever Valentines inspired us to write our own love letters to contraception!
It’s true, I had a long love affair with the condom. I thought we would be together forever. It protected me, and gave me the dual protection I needed at the time. Those were good times, but I moved on. I was young, and didn’t realize what a big world of family planning was out there!
My next affair, the pill, was short-lived. It was effective for my friends, but I was so flighty! I didn’t treat it the way it deserved. I would forget about it, neglect it…. So I tried the patch, but the side effects left me cold.
I quickly realized I needed something with minimal side effects and something that would last a long time. However, I knew I wanted to have a family eventually, so I didn’t want anything permanent. Was I being too picky, I wondered?
That’s when I found you, sweet IUD! How wonderful to have you with me no matter what I did, but not to pressure me to stay with you. You were first with me in my 20s, before I decided I wanted to get pregnant. Then after my son was born, you came back to me. We have had years of happiness ever since! And the best thing? I know that if I want to have another child, you will set me free again!
Thank you for helping me plan my family, IUD. Happy Valentine’s Day!
