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

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.

Lots of good information in here and some scary truths. At times it was VERY repetitive and I rushed through the end a bit. Worth the read over all.
