But one thing is clear—for many of us, birth control is the GOAT.

Because birth control isn't one-size-fits-all

I spoke to four plus-size women—Chaya, Sarah, Liz, and Monica—and asked them to be as honest as possible about their experiences with birth control, including what has worked for them and what hasn’t.
