Are Oral Contraceptive Pills (OCP) the Panacea You Thought They Would Be?

There are 10 million women in the Unites States using “The Pill” as their primary means of contraception (Guttmacher). Unfortunately, most women don’t know how the pill works nor do they understand the profound effect the Pill is having on their lady parts. What’s even crazier is that I have seen “The Pill” prescribed for everything under the sun including but not limited to depression, migraines, infertility, menstrual cramps, endometriosis, acne and mood swings. Ricki Lake and Abby Epstein are putting the final touches on their new movie “Sweetening the Pill” and I wanted to take a moment to update all of my readers about the importance of the topic.
