I no longer take the Pill, I was 22 yrs old.
I was just married, so 37 years ago....it looked just like in the picture you have posted!! Nothing seems to have changed?
'Why' did I take it..........not to get pregnant :)
No, I believe that interfering with normal bodily processes for the sake of contraception is not a good idea. Learning to listen to your body,on the other hand, is very empowering and has no side-effects.
