21. The Pill Explained

In this episode, our very own Emily takes us on a deep dive into the Pill.

Originally a groundbreaking tool for both female empowerment and contraception in the 1960s, Emily shines a light on how the Pill works and the many myths surrounding it, in order to reclaim true empowerment through the power of informed decision-making.

In this episode:

– Why Emily and Tarra believe it’s so important to raise awareness for empowered, informed decision-making

– The history of the Pill, and how its conception (pun intended!) changed the game for birth control for women

– How the Pill works: by preventing ovulation

– The efficacy – both realistic and idealistic – of the Pill

– Some of the common reasons many women are prescribed the Pill (other than for contraception)

– The Pill’s hormones, and how they differ to human hormones

– Why a Pill-bleed isn’t a period

– Some of the common side-effects of Pill use, including depression and weight gain

– Post-Pill conditions and syndromes, including post-pill acne, and why they occur

– Arguments for the Pill

– Non-hormonal contraceptive alternatives

– How the Pill may alter a male’s attractiveness for women
