I may be nold fashioned but when I hear the TV say, "there is no need for women to have more than 4 periods a year." Well that makes me wonder. GOD made us a certain way and that was having 12, HEAQLTHY, cleansing periods a year. Sure they're a real pain sometimes but if not necessary God would have done it different, right? These drug companies are selling pills or do dads that interrupt the natural flow of our lives. If I had a daughter and she opted for 1 to 4 periods a year taking pills, I would be horrified and scared to death for her. Am i being crazy?

I took birth control pills way back when and began having frequent blood vessel breakage, forcing me to quit taking those type pills.

I too took them many years ago and my entire body functions changed, and not for the better. I developed IBS for years afterwards and it was dreadfull.

I went and got a Lapriscopic Tubaligation, in and out of the hospital in an afternoon with no side effects ever! I wish I'd have done that instead of taking birth control pills which messed up my system.

Cookie I'm not so sure everyone is so careful to use rhythm method.

I've never taken birth control pills and glad that now am in perimenopause.

Some of women abit younger than I, use a menstrual cup. Brand names like Diva Cup, etc. Personally this is too much effort for me.

Orchid. Rhythm method. Gawd NO!!!! LOL! shocked laugh

I was commenting on Chatty's comment. Maybe I misread it. I thought she was saying that there was a pill that would only allow a woman to have periods 1 to 4 months out of a year.

I didn't think that was a good idea. There is a rhythm and flow to our bodies.....donít mess with it. That was my thought anyway. smile

I agree that it's best not to "mess with Mother Nature."

I too took the pill in my 20s, but had to stop for health reasons. I used a diaphragm for the decade of my 30s and then -- at 39 as I recall -- I, too, opted for a tubal ligation.

Best decision I ever made, since by then my docs had told me it wasn't medically wise for me to have any more children.

I suppose birth control of any sort is "messing with nature," but I can't imagine what long-term health ramifications might come from limiting ones' self to only 4 periods a year...

(Besides, my periods were always so heavy and long, I'd hate to think what kind of flow I would have encountered after 3 months!! Yikes!)

Anne,
Your birth control history mirrors my own. Best decision I ever
made was that tubal.

A period 4 times a year can't be good in the long run...it just doesn't seem right.

I haven't had a period in 9 months and I don't miss it at all. I hate the hotflashes and night sweats that come with the process, but I'm coming down to the home stretch! I hope
