**Warning** if you don't want to hear about my periods don't read any further! ;)
There's one section in this book that's really got me thinking though (and I'm not even half way through it!). It's about birth control and menstruation. A few years ago I considered (briefly) going off the pill. At the time I was in a hetero relationship and wasn't willing to rely on just a condom. Besides, before the pill, my periods were irregular and painful. In any case, Inga raises a good argument for it... and now that I'm not in a hetero relationship (nor do I plan to be in one any time soon) I'm finding the reason for me to stay on the pill is simply to regulate my periods...and is it worth messing with the natural rythm of my body to accomplish this? I'm starting to think it isn't... so I'm thinking I'm going to stop taking the pill and start getting in tune with my body, tracking my cycle and watching the moon (seeing as the moon is most often linked with women's cycles).
In any case, I'm wondering if anyone else has been on the pill and then stopped taking it... and if they can give me any feedback, because I'm just not really sure if I should go for it.
