I just found out something abouth birth control pills that I never knew. I was put on the birth control pill at 15 years old to try and regulate my off the wall periods. When I got married (at 18 years old
it was rocky at first but now in our fourth year we're gettin the hang of it
) I kept it as Birth control after the doc assured me that the pill worked by PREVENTING OVULATION. I am 100% AGAINST abortion ( for religious reasons, personal reasons, and I've done enough reasurch to know what REALLY goes on, please don't flame me, I don't kill doctors or anything) but I figured no ovulation = no conception =OK with me. However, After forgeting them for almost a week
I started doing some reaserch incase I got pregnant, didn't know it, and went back on the pill. What I discoverd made me almost PUKE. There are 2 types of Birth control pills, mini, and combination. I was on the latter. The way they work is with two hormones (opposed to only one in the mini) One is to surpress ovulation. HOWEVER, it does a really crappy job so the other hormone (the only one in the mini) simply causes you to have an abortion if you concieve (funny how no doc ever mentions this little fact) After the initial panic attack (gee, I wonder how many babies I've aborted this year
) I promptly tossed my pills in the garbage. In fact they were the exact pills that doctors give women to abort recently concieved babies. Another little tidbit she failed to mention. To add ingury to insult, I DID get pregnant, which I was elated about but miscarried thanks to the poison I had been taking for 5 years. I know there are others out there who are against abortion and a lot of them probably didn't know this either. so I am passing it on. So please DO YOUR RESURCH before doing ANYTHING medically, doctors wont tell you things that might make them seem "politically incorrect"
