I used to think pregnancy prevention was a big word with a long list of to-dos to get it done, but I was proven wrong some days ago. I love gist, do you?
I was at the supermarket shopping for my period; my way of encouraging myself that I will see it. Well, this is the 3rd time my period is late in 3 months and my strategy has been condoms occasionally and salt and water after sex. While deciding on what brand to try this time, I saw an old school mate shopping with her boo
Let’s just say the universe sent her to me…
Let me tell you a little about our friendship, we were sit partners in secondary school and would have become best friends if her parents had not relocated to Abuja. This is that same Kike life and direct in my city, shopping at my favourite supermarket and looking all chic.
Unfortunately, we could not catch up because, one, three is a crowd and two, I had an appointment I had to leave for. Instead, we hugged, screamed and exchanged numbers
The next 2 days was a nightmare, I still didn’t see my period and all my dreams were centered on babies crying. Finally!!! On the 3rd day, a Saturday, I saw my period, and danced for hours before heading out to hang out with Kike as planned.
We met at a fast food close to the supermarket and our gist moved from boys to men to Uni life and back to men. At some point, Kike goes, “Bimpe, you are glowing ooo, what’s the secret?”
“The only secret I have right now is that my period arrived!”
Kike was so confused that I had to gist her about the last 3 months. After listening to my tales of pregnancy scares, Kike laughed and said: “first you need to stop taking salt and water, not healthy!”
“You know I used to be like you, dancing, urinating after sex and taking salt and water, but since I took charge of my sex life with the contraceptive knowledge I have gained, I have no worries”
“You can also be like me by following these simple steps:
Visit honeyandbanana.com to read about contraceptives
Call 55059 for free to get referred to a clinic near you
Visit the clinic for counselling and adopt a suitable contraceptive option”
I hugged and kissed Kike on the cheeks so much people around started giving us a funny look, did I care? No! I had gotten best information ever!
Within a week, I did all these! Now I can say pregnancy prevention starts and ends with you plus it’s easy as ABC.
