If You Are On The Pill, Read This!

I read this article this morning in the globe and mail. I've always had problems with the pill. I have mixed feelings about it - sure it's effective in controlling birth, but I personally have always felt a little bit off while taking it. This study says pills with higher amounts of estrogen are bad for blood clots (well, not bad, but worse), and I want to see more studies about different side-effects of the pill (like weight gain and mood swings) concerning this same variable. I'm thinking progesterone only pills are the way to go in the future, and I want to see even more proof of this...
