I agree with most of what Tiffy said, it rings true to me that women (since we are physically *capable* of having a child approximately once a year) were "designed" to ovulate and menstruate less frequently than we do currently. I can also see how high rates of ovulation and menstruation can lead to an increased risk of ovarian and uterine cancer (isn't early age of menarche a risk anyway?)
I was on Depo for 5 years, no periods for 4 years of that and it was great. I know a lot of people take time to get back their fertility and periods after stopping the drug, but I started the pill right away and got a period the next month *obviously a mixed blessing *lol**
This BCP sounds reasonable to me...but I'd be interested to hear the levels of hormones in it. I mean, the reason I was ok with Depo was because it was no estrogen, which meant no development of uterine lining which would build up.
On the same topic, has anyone heard anything about Lunelle (once a month progestin-based injectable) becoming available again?
