Quote# 8966

Sure, the [birth control] hormones in birth control lower the risk of ovarian cancer, which is, at this time, undetectable, but I've read reports that the estrogen in it raise the risk of breast cancer. Personally, I'm not going to take something that lowers the risk of one type of cancer while raising the risk of another type. I'll take my chances with natural family planning (which is NOT the rhythm method) and my family history of neither types of cancer. Also, the pill is only 99% effective if taken at the EXACT same time every day, and I don't know any teenager that's capable of that (in the case of Jerusha_Girl.) I disagree with your want to take your daughter to family planning the day she gets her period so much, it's not even funny. It's as if you're saying, "You're a woman now, go have sex!"

So preventing your daughter from learning about possible life-changing consequences of certain actions is a good thing?

Yea, she's absolutely right. If you're late with the pill by even one minute, follicles just form instantly, not in the ovaries, but fertilized and attached to the uterine wall. That's, you know, why they don't have that week of spacer pills or whatever. And that 99% isn't a composite statistic: that's per pill. Right? Anyone?

Armchair gynecologists are funny.

I feel really sorry for the daughter of whoever she's addressing. I hope the parent gives her decent sex ed.

There's so much incorrect information and just poor logic in that quote.

I actually had the honor of debating this one... Being the infamous \"JerushaGirl\" mentioned in the post. This is just one of the gems she came out with during the debate...

There are so many nice things about the pill, no cramps, shorter period, that I'd almost recomend it for those not even having sex. (reason I wouldn't is everyone is different and there's different pills, etc.)

<tangent>
That's also what ticks me off about people denying those prescriptions, how do they even know they're taking it as a contraceptive?

Hey \"firstkid4me\" (hope that doesn't mean your a pedophile),
Isn't that \"natural family planning that's not the rhythm method\" also referred to as a \"pullout\". Well, as Murtha found out, advocating a pullout will get you labeled a coward, as that abstinence-inducing-face Jean Schmidt showed us. Oh, yeah it is a bad idea to sex-educate your pubescent daughter. That is why there is such a high teen-pregnancy rate in states that emphasize abstinence only sex education.

Oh, and it's a good good thing she didn't bother to find out that ovarian cancer is amongst the deadliest, while breast cancer is now one of the most survivable. I hope she is not planning to get a call from MENSA.

Xi, you're absolutely right. I have friends who suffer from endometriosis and cysts who take the pill simply because it lessens their awful symptoms. This shut your eyes and don't talk about it shit pisses me off.

Deal with it people - teenagers DO have sex!

King Spirula -

Yea, that, and the fact that the risk of breast cancer between those who use the pill and those who don't is no different ten years after stopping the pill, and only slightly increased for pill users before then.

it's better to be prepared then not so people should have as much information as they can ((info not porn....much to my unliking)) with which to make a choice, isn't it better to have the girl/woman informed and trained to help avoid having a baby then to have her totally in the dark about sex and having to explore and shooting out unwanted kids

...Estrogen causes breast cancer?? Oh shi-

Have you checked what the mortality rates are for the different types of cancer? If one has a higher chance of survival, it's better to take your chances with that one.

What natural planning do you use, if it's NOT the rhythm method?
Just letting pregnancy happen when it happens, that is not planning, ya know.

From what I remember, it's not EXACT same time, but within a couple of hours. It might differ from different types of pills, of course, and I stopped taking the pill, oh, about 30 years ago, as it made sex VERY painful, and the pill about 1000 % effective, as I recoiled if hubby even looked at me "that way".

This is a large part of why i can never go back to the Faith.

She has managed to convince herself that a cancer she won't detect until it is literally killing her is just as bad as one that's much easier to detect, treat, survive, so tgat she isn't seduced into something some guy tells her an invisible skybeast is offended by....
