What I Really Think About The Pill

The pill was an amazing invention that changed society, took away the burden of biology from women, and furthered the feminist cause. Our society probably wouldn’t be where it is today if it weren’t for the pill, and I am grateful for that.

Want To Conceive? Make Sure You Know When You’re Actually Ovulating!

Want To Conceive? Make Sure You Know When You’re Actually Ovulating!
