Last week was the 50th anniversary of The Pill. Did you know that the original Pill contained 5 times as much hormones as today’s efficient Pill? And, did you know that The Pill was the first medication designed for a ‘healthy person?’
Despite the widespread use of The Pill, women continue to wonder about missing a dose, or if there is a need to take it at the same time every day. For answers, read our Blog post titled, The Pill.
Interestingly enough, despite never missing a dose , many women are still worried about getting pregnant and either forbid the partner from ejaculating inside the vagina and/or make him don a condom! Is there really a need for such double protection???? The answer: no, as long as you do not miss a dose. Of course, you may still want him to use a condom when protection against Sexually Transmitted Diseases is needed.
