DISCONTINUING THE PILL IMMEDIATELY DECREASES OR MAY EVEN ELIMINATE A WOMAN'S RISK OF SUFFERING FROM ONE OF THESE OVER 60 NOTED ADVERSE SIDE EFFECTS!

The information on this page is not intended to upset, alarm or anger. It is intended to simply portray the truth about the 'Perfect Contraception'. You've already heard about the one or two alleged 'health benefits' of the pill, now hear the truth about the over 60 serious side effects and arm yourself with full knowledge of this contraception.

Where did this information come from?

This information is taken from the book, "The Bitter Pill: How Safe is the 'Perfect Contraception'?" by Dr. Ellen Grant, one of the pill founding physicians. The book is published by Elm Tree Books, London.

In the forward of Dr. Grant's book, she bravely states: "I have been told I should not write this book unless I had an alternative. It is a lifetime's work just trying to understand the problems. The search for something better belongs to us all."

Studies to support all of the information were done by the Royal College of General Practitioners, Oxford University, The American Walnut Creek Contraceptive Study, The Journal of the American Medical Association, The British Journal of Family Planning, and World Medicine Journal and are directly sourced in this book.
