Birth control pills are nutrient/vitamin robbers, and this is the source of the health risks that accompanies the use of “The Pill”. The Nutrient-depleting effects of The Pill were recognized as early as 1975.Oral contraceptives deplete more bodily nutrients than ANY other class of drugs! However, women taking The Pill even as long as 10 years may NOT notice any obvious health problems. Maybe you might first notice a lack of energy, but doesn’t connect the dots and realize that magnesium, B12 and numerous other nutrients involved in energy production are depleted. It may take months or even years for the nutrient imbalances to be fully corrected, SO START NOW!!! Not using The Pill doesn’t mean you have to rely on withdrawal or the rhythm method, both of which are notoriously unreliable, instead “barrier methods”, like diaphragms, cervical caps and male and female condoms.

Cervical caps are just as effective as The Pill and you can put them in and leave them a little longer for a bit more spontaneity. Female condoms are even more convenient They fit much like a diaphragm and they can be left in place as long as eight hours. Instead of potentially toxic and possibly spermicides.

In December 2002, the U.S. government published its biannual Report on Carcinogensthat added all steroidal estrogens to the list of known human carcinogens, the gravity of this finding cannot be overstated:

All estrogens used in HRT [hormone replacement therapy] and oral contraceptives have now been proven unequivocally to cause cancer.

Ladies it is time to use smarter and safer methods to protect ourselves!
