Alyssa, 19, the pill

When I only have it once every three months, it’s just so much easier.

Alyssa is on Seasonique, a birth control pill that reduces her period to just four times a year.

Before taking it, her period was irregular, so she never knew when it would arrive or how long it would last. Now she knows when she’s going to get it and, because it only happens once a season, she can stay active for months without it getting in the way of anything.
