This journal of my work at the Reproductive Health Care Center of Kalamazoo is the first part of a two part project. The second part is a review of the development of the male contraceptive pill, the system in which it would work, its effects on this system, and the prospects of its use in the future. I started at RHCC with no work experience in human sexuality, let alone none whatsoever within an agency that services so many people daily. The experience of talking to people, whether over the phone or in person, about sexuality greatly improved my overall interpersonal skills. The pro-choice philosophy that stresses individual responsibility advocated at RHCC is one of the basic strengths we all should exercise throughout our social lives. My experiences through the months are contained within these pages, but the mental and emotional growth during my stay at RHCC isn't and couldn't be written in a Journal such a.s this.
