    The Pill

    The other day, I was talking about this girl and a guy said to me "she's on the pill". I enquired to how he could tell and he replied "Her arse has gotten bigger"

    Is there really a way to tell if a girl is on the pill?

    hmm i dunno... i know a lot of people on the pill, but my cousin strongly recommends me not to go on it because of side effects, and that it might affect my fertility later... =\

    I hate to say it but it does. If you're on the pill for 20-30 years or so, the chances of being pregnant are lessened. I read/heard that somewhere before...

    you dont think that that may be due to the fact that most women go on the pill around our age, and then in 20-30 years time we're already in the declining fertility rates, regardless of whether or not we're on the pill

    No. The pill does not affect your fertility. The women who complain about this are usually the women who went on the pill because they had irregular periods, and they think great, I'm on the pill why worry anymore - and they never look into the underlying cause of the irregularity which most often than not is caused by endometriosis, so they've been spending all these years with surface factors looking great because the pill is making them have regulare periods, but they haven't done anything about the patches of scar tissue on their reproductive system caused by the endometriosis, which, with or without the pill, causes infertility. It's not the pill - it's just the pill masks the problems.

    It could affect fertility. My mum was on it for 4 years when she got married and it took her another 3 years to have me once she stopped it, and she had no other problems at that time. It's not very common, but it can happen. Its like Roaccutane, there's a minimal chance of depression and not many people do get it, but there are a few that do.

    Yeah but that effect is stated in the CMI, the CMI recommends you don't even bother attempting to try and get pregnant for 3 months after stopping the pill, and for those people who were irregular before starting it can take up to a year. But also realisticly, there are like 6 days? In a girls cycle when she can get pregnant, if you're not doing it then, or you've been doing every single day multiple times up until then, your chance of getting pregnant is lessened.

    As for telling whether a girl is on the pill or not, I work at a pharmacy, which serves most of the people I know, if it wasn't for the fact I dispensed the girls' prescriptions, I'd have no clue they were on the pill.

    depo ralovera and all the other jabs like it have more side effects (And more frequently experienced) than the pill, will not correct irregularity, isn't as reliable and can wear off in people faster than in others.

    in some cases it can, but it's not meant to, that's a side effect so if you experience it for a prolonged period of time, then you will probably switch pills. there are many different pills with many different hormone combinations in many different strengths. one pill in particular is prescribed specifically for girls with blotchy skin/bad acne/excessive hair and it alleviates the problems, but generally, if you're on the right pill for you, your skin shouldn't go blotchy.

    Maybe the sideeffects are just different to everyone.

    It's funny though because some oldies used to tell me that girls with big arses are more fertile. I cracked up.
