    If you want to get a hint of how much Bad Cramps can hurt women, just put a big fat very tight rubber band around your balls for a few minutes, and imagine that pain for 5-8 days every month non-fucking-stop. And if you get off on this, then leave it there for a while, until you feel the pain.

    I agree wholeheartedly that pms is a medical condition but insurance company's should also look into the financial aspects it's cheaper to have b/c than a pregnancy b/c is what 25/30 dollars a mt versus a pregnancy which can run up to what 10 grand or more

    I stopped taking birth control this month because I was really busy and unable to get it refilled in time, so I figured I could just start again the next month.

    Never Again!!!!!!!!!

    I always forgot how bad it is to experience cramps without the pill until I actually have to do it. The way that I explained the pain to my boyfriend is "it feels like someone is sticking a knife into your lower back and twisting it all the way through your spine into your stomach." I never had problems with cramps until my freshman year of college, and I really think it gets worse as I get older. It's seriously almost unbearable.

    Luckily, I got my pills refilled today and took my first one at 10 am. It hasn't helped much yet, but I'm hoping that by tomorrow they will be kicking in. AHHH.

    My BF did take me to Chili's for a Molten Chocolate cake to make me feel better. As the waitress placed it in front of us, I told him that I had seriously just gotten chills all over my body from the excitement of thinking about eating it and he was like, "that's not right". lol

They both started taking the pill and the problems stopped. I started taking it to clear up my face (and because I was insecure about being so flat). They are also frequently used to treat ovarian cysts and benign breast cysts, get rid of severe acne, increase appetite in underweight girls, and have been proven to significantly reduce the rates of ovarian cancer and endometrial cancer as well as prevent ectopic pregnancy, which can result in miscarriage, birth defects, and harm to the mother. I don't see how anyone could legitimately argue that birth control does not have a medical purpose.
    I started taking them as a teenager to correct my period irregularity. I would literally have a period every three weeks, then not have one for six months, etc. I would have bad cramps when the time did roll around. I was told by my doctor this was too unhealthy to be so irregular. I was very active too which affected my period. Once I got on them, I never got off. They may not work for everyone, but they really worked for me, and for a true medical purpose. Anyone who thinks they are just for pregnancy is clearly misinformed, alot of women who take them do not take them for that reason alone, or at all. I was a virgin when I started on the pill. This really irritates me about these companies.

    This springs to mind the controversy over Gardasil. Just because you give your daughter this vaccine, doesn't mean she'll become a slut. Just because she's on the pill, doesn't mean she's going to start sleeping around. I just want to smack people who are so concerned about their daughter's precious flower. Raise your girl right and she's bound to make good decisions.
    Baby, by the time you have kids and they're in school, no one will care about you.

    I agree hpv is so wide spread that the chances of your kid not getting it or slimmer than none even if they are a good girl.

    If people only realized how common HPV is, they wouldn't hesitate. There are numerous different strains too, but I think 3 or 4 that are precursors to cervical cancer.

    I can understand people not wanting their child to have sex, but to deliberately deny them vaccination from something that could kill them as in "incentive" or "punishment" is sick and evil. I guess some people would rather see their child dead than having premarital sex.

    But for that matter even a "good girl" could get it from her husband if he's had sex with anyone else. Men are way more likely to carry and be asymptomatic.

    Good point. Ultimately it's HER hymen anyway, not yours. Hope parents these days are more realistic, and less kooky about this. When I was growing up, one of two scenarios resulted for the parents most preoccupied with their daughter's virginity and its maintenance: They ended up raising the town whore (with parents being the last ones to know it), or when the little girl finally did find a man and get married (with parents grudging approval and usually earlier than she should have) their lives were miserable.

    Yeah I thankfully had a wonderful mom who put me on the pill at 17 even though I was a good girl still just to be on the safe side and I still didn't haven't sex for another year and 1/2 because she raised me right.

    When Viagra first hit the market and it was revealed that medicaid/medicare would cover it but still wouldn't cover birth control, I went nuts a wrote letters to the editor all over the place, basically saying 'so you'll pay for the erection but won't make sure that there is an unwanted outcome from that erection?'. We live in a man's world. If men had to get pregnant, birth control would be free. God this shit pisses me off.
