Our periods stopping . . .

Do any of you ever worry about all these birth controls the doctors offer us stopping our periods? Yeah I know that its nice not the receive the nasty each month, but long term side effects. Their always finding complications over a length of time because of different medicines. We were meant to have periods, we're all women. So do any of you think, even though its nice, that its really bad that you don't receive your monthly?

  • I don't take bc anymore for a different reason ( I found out how they really work), but I wouldn't be surprised if they mess us up in other ways. I won't ever get back on bc.
