They can help to take away the really bad pains and other stuff with a period that is particularly debilitating. I've known some women that took it just to get rid of the horrible cramps.

Not everyone gets it but there are a lot of side effects. I know a lot of women who get them. But most if not all women rather risk getting acne and weight gain than an unplanned/unwanted pregnancy. The pill is only 1% better at prevention than the condom, but most prefer it bc they have a lower risk of not wearing a condom while on the pill compared to wearing on a condom while not on the pill; condoms can break and it's hard to screw up taking a pill unless you forget to take them or cause a bad metabolic reaction. Plus not wearing a condom feels better. What most people don't do is their research. Some think it prevents cancer so its good to take but it actually doesn't; there's not a significant difference against breast cancer and it INCREASES your chances of getting ovarian cancer. Also, they're known to cause miscarriages, which many of my friends and family have been affected by, and other health complications, which most people don't think to connect with their illnesses. As someone in the medical field, I won't take BC. But if other women want to take it then that's them. Everyone has their own opinion on BC
