  •  Like it or not, it was called the birth control (4+ / 0-)

    Pill because that was its original purpose.  And still is. WHile it's prescribed for other purposes, that was its reason for being developed by DOctor Rock.

    I went on it for dysmenorrhea, and stayed on it for birth control (I tried a diaphragm but =it caused frequent UTIs--and it didn't help that my cat discovered it made a great hockey puck, which made me have to buy another one).

    The last time we mixed religion and politics people got burned at the stake.

        My cat at the time was a dignified flame point Siamese named Darcy after the hero of pride and Prejudice,  I had already added the jelly to the diaphragm so it was very greasy and hard to maneuver , It popped out my hands and sudden;y my dignified cat turned into a rabid hockey player intent on the Heisman trophy...Luckily ny date had a sense of humor. He laughed too when same cat ate his socks one evening...

            was one with Greer Garson. Myself, I prefer the miniseries that made Colin Firth a star. I read the book when I was 12 (my school did it as a play--all girl's school, so plays had to be chaste since the male roles were played  by girls). And fell in love. Watching my dignified kitty turn into Wayne Gretzky was like imagining Mr. Darcy in ice skates  breaking someone's teeth on the rink.  He was a wonderful cat.  My Mom refused to let me have him back  when I moved home to look for a teaching job (I';d been working in D.C., and the misogyny got to me) so he spent the rest of his years with her.

            I've been lucky in having some amazing cats over the years.But none of them wanted to play hockey with a diaphragm, mainly because I went back on the pill after that.
