You know it's a bad sign when:
1) Your mother gets you an herbal supplement to help "regulate your cycle"
2) She warns you beforehand to take it with something that has a really strong taste to mask the pill's taste.
3) The active ingredient is called "Chaste Berry" (What does that even mean...?)
4) The pills are poop-colored.
5) You open the pill bottle a foot away from your face and still almost gag from the smell.
Oh, the things I do for hormonal balance.
