Taking a Break From The Pill - Fact or Fiction?

By November 11, 2013

Follow me on:

Do you have a question about contraception that you cannot seem to get an honest answer to? Is there something that you are confused by, and you want some clarification? Have you heard a myth ...or maybe it's not...you're not sure? Feel free to post your question on my Your Questions About Birth Control Page. I know it can be frustrating if you can't find the exact answer you need. Just post your question or concern, and it comes directly to me! Many times, your questions will be added onto the site to everybody can see the answer... chances are if you are searching for answers, somebody else is, too!

For example, I recently received an email from a woman who has been using birth control pill for 15 years and wanted to know:

Is it bad to be on the pill for an extended period of time? Are there any side effects or risks? Is it beneficial to take a break?

What do you think?
