The pill is not natural and as an OB/GYN RN, Maternity Nurse, I have recommended for decades that women leave these hormones out of their bodies. They are toxic

I recommend this book to all females in every stage of their lives and menstrual flow.

Moms and Grandmoms read and recommend to your daughters so they are 100% aware of the effects of hormonal birth control. Excellent information about other options to be in control of your reproductive capacity and menstrual cycles.

Have your sons read it

Interessante per chi non ha ancora le idee chiare su che effetti può fare la pillola anticoncezionale sul proprio corpo. Di taglio più "medico" rispetto a "Mestruazioni" della Pope, mi pare i suoi interventi si rifacciano in toto all'altro sui libro.

This book's byline should have read THE PILL IS EVIL.
Doesn't even attempt to be evenhanded in dealing with the pros and cons of the Pill - they're all cons. The Pill will kill you, and every single woman who's ever taken it regrets it. Further, periods are wonderful and fulfilling and joy, joy, joy (that's news to me); your acne is your own fault; all the other contraception methods are equally bad; and lastly, the only contraceptive that works is natural family planning, so we should ALL be us
