when i was in southeast asia earlier this year i bought a year's supply of birth control for $28, about the same price of one month of BC here. the only catch: they didn't have my brand, so i switched brands. nothing sketchy - manufactured in the netherlands, and the exact same brand is also sold here in the US under a different name.
however, i'm due to go to the gyno soon, and nervous about telling them i bought birth control abroad, since (a) it may be illegal? and (b) i didn't consult anyone about the change, and don't know if i should have, as i was on my last brand for years.
so... should i not mention it and hope it doesn't come up, lie and say i've been on the same one still, or just tell the truth?
