THere has been much news recently about various medicines, hormone therapy, etc that had horrendous results especially when taken long term. The biggest news was about estrogen and the huge problems that many women have had. The question you should ask yourself is this, "What kind of life will I have in 20 years, 30 years if I continue to use contraceptives that are known to be essentially alien and toxic to women?" And where will those people who prescribed these toxins be then? Will they be there to hold your hand, to console you when you become the one in 100 who develop some life threatening disease? Contraceptives have been proven repeatedly to be deadly to developing babies and to the mothers who use them. The best contraceptive and safest method of birth control is Billings Method or Sympto-thermal method. There are even sensors which chart the fertile times and the secretions that women have when ovulation occurs. None of these methods endanger the life of the mother or the possible life within her. So young lady, the choices are yours to make. Stop taking risks with your future health. Having babies is not a disease. Having a regret-free life is the greatest gift you can give yourself and your family.
