Pill that stops periods..
Laybrel has been developed to stop periods for women who experience pain and difficulty with it, but symptoms and pain during menstration are caused by something like lack of exercise, poor nutrition etc. It will also be used for continual contraception. I am no doctor but I think by stopping your period unnaturally you are stopping your body from doing something that it is supposed to be doing. More concentration should be in the pain relief and the cause.
Women should not be excited about stopping their period either, because it's a sign of good health. it is a part of your womanhood. Of course menopause happens, but that is natural and your body is doing what it is supposed to do at that age. Do we know that stopping your period is safe anyway?
The FDA says that the risks of using Lybrel are the same as other oral contraceptives, those risks are increased risk of:
1. blood clots,
2. heart attacks
And from what I have read, the label warns that cigarette smoking increases the risk of serious cardiovascular side effects from the use of combination estrogen and progestin-containing contraceptives.
I guess if you smoke you don't mind taking risks, but still!!
And what if you fall pregnant but don't know because you don't get your period anyway? Then you will be taking pills while a baby might be growing inside!! What will happen to the baby then?
Womanhood is not a disease, helllloooo!!!
Well that's just my opinion.
Here is an aritcle by Mike Adams...
FDA approves pill that stops periods; is womanhood a disease? (opinion)
