Happy Thursday, y’all! This is a sponsored post written by me on behalf of Bedsider.org. All thoughts and opinions are my own, and I am absolutely thrilled to be able to share such a wonderful feminine resource as part of this sponsored campaign.
First off, I’m loving the name of the organization, which leads to the question: What really is in your bedside drawer? Well, here’s a picture of mine (absolutely nothing was removed prior to this picture). What do you keep in your bedside drawer and what do those items say about you? Keep these things in mind cause there’s a super funPinterest contest at the end of this post!
.:Gotta have the essentials: lotion, sleep spray, my iPad, and a good book (among a few other items). Mind you, it’s not normally this organized. Remote controls, which are all currently in use, typically invade the space:.
Now, a little more about Bedsider.org…. Bedsider is non-profit private organization operated by the National Campaign to Prevent Teen and Unplanned Pregnancy. Right now, 7 in 10 pregnancies among unmarried women 18-29 are described by women themselves as unplanned. There are horrifying teen pregnancy statistics in our country, specifically among high school students, and I wish we had more organizations like this one, providing readers with an abundance of free resources to encourage women to take an active role in their reproductive health and well being.
The site dives straight into the details of all available forms of birth control, some of which I’ll admit I’ve never heard of or considered. Each method has its own descriptive summary, quick facts about side effects//effectiveness//effort required, price breakdown, and information on who to consult for it. Most importantly, it shows “real life” video commentaries on the perks of each method and why women//couples choose particular methods. If you’re on the fence, find out which method is right for you here: http://bedsider.org/methods.
In addition to vast detail, research, and insight on all forms of birth control, Besider tells you where//how to get it and enables you to set text/email/phone reminders to take your birth control and for appointments with physicians and clinics. Basically, it can serve as your own personal assistant in preventing unwanted pregnancy. Sound amazing? It is. Set your reminders here: http://bedsider.org/reminders.
Oh, and their “Features” page has tons of stories, articles, frisky tips, and more fun stuff. Want to know about 4 tips for a greener sex life? I most certainly do.
So, basically… every woman or couple should visit this site out at least once. Why not? I’m 24 and consider myself very informed, but I still learned an impressive amount in approximately twenty minutes. Start spreading the word and enter the “What’s In Your Bedside Drawer?”Pinterest Contest! Enter for a chance to win a variety of absolutely fabulous prizes ((and to see what certain people may or may not keep in their nightstands)).
What’s the weirdest thing you keep in your nightstand? I showed you a picture of mine; it’s only fair.
The long and short of it all is… every girl has that bedside drawer that holds the bedroom essentials: their Kindle, a pair of reading glasses, sexy lingerie. – whatever fits their personality. No matter what your drawer says about you, there’s birth control that will fit right in. Find the best method for your routine and style at Bedsider.org.
Have a fabulous weekend, loves. be.safe.always.
