Give people access to an anonymous confessions app and you won't believe some of the scandalous situations (and lies) people are holding in. Recently, dozens of people took to Whisper to confess their deepest personal stories and let's just say it got REAL — espeically when it comes to the reasons why women are withholding the truth about taking their birth control.
Loads of women actually confessed why they choose NOT to share with their sexual partner that they are NOT on the pill. Why? Brace yourself, because it gets quite frightening. From the desire to have a baby to securing an 18-year check, women get honest:
"I'm having unprotected sex with my friend's crush tonight, I lied and said I was on birth control. I'm desperate for a baby."
"I slept with a guy I knew who was rich & I told him I was on Birth Control (I lied) now I am 5 months pregnant. He rented a apartment for me :) he pays for everything. I don't feel guilty one bit."
"I lied to my boyfriend about being on birth control because I got tired of getting a shot every 3 months."
"I lied about being on birth control because I really wanted a baby. I was scared of being alone forever."
"I lied about being on birth control and accidentally got pregnant. We are married now and I'm still filled with guilt that I purposely had our child."
"My pregnancy test is positive. I lied to [my] boyfriend about being on birth control because I was tired of living a purposeless life. Now I have a little one to motivate me."
"No one knows who the father of my baby is because I lied and told him I was on birth control, so he can't know."
"I lied to my fiancé that I [was] on birth control to get pregnant. He thought I was on the shot."
"I lied about being on birth control and got him for child support. 18 years of easy money!"
"I lied about being on birth control and had a baby...I never once looked back to regret it."
"I lied about being on birth control. When I came clean he said he understood and will always love me."
"Been dating this hot older guy. I lied and told him I'm on birth control. I really want another baby."
"One time I told a guy [I] was on birth control when I wasn't. He waited until we were about to do the deed to tell me he had no condom, so I lied."
"I'm hoping my pregnancy test comes out negative. I lied about being on birth control...now I'm regretting it. I thought I wanted a baby, now I am super hesitant."
"I slept with a random this weekend and the condom broke. I lied and said I was on birth control. I hope I'm not pregnant! I sure learned my lesson!"
"I told my fwb [friend with benefits] I was on birth control. I don't even know why I lied. I don't want to have his babies."
