Birth control pills…

So as a professional I have many mixed feelings about the good old birth control pill. On the one hand they can really ease a woman’s worries about becoming pregnant and that’s a great thing. On the other hand, more and more studies are coming out suggesting that they lower hormone levels which effect women’s desire, ability to become aroused and even orgasm. They raise other hormone levels that block a women’s desire, ability to become aroused — so what’s the right answer? Well, like most things, everyone’s different and women respond differently. Probably you shouldn’t go on them when you are very young and you shouldn’t stay on them for too long. Pay attention while you’re on them to see if you see any change. Finally, caveat emptor — there is a wide variety of birth control pills and the amount of hormones they include. In general, those birth control pills that are better for your skin, are worse for your love life. Sorry!! Proving yet again, that there is no such thing as a free lunch.
