Sure, the [birth control] hormones in birth control lower the risk of ovarian cancer, which is, at this time, undetectable, but I've read reports that the estrogen in it raise the risk of breast cancer. Personally, I'm not going to take something that lowers the risk of one type of cancer while raising the risk of another type. I'll take my chances with natural family planning (which is NOT the rhythm method) and my family history of neither types of cancer. Also, the pill is only 99% effective if taken at the EXACT same time every day, and I don't know any teenager that's capable of that (in the case of Jerusha_Girl.) I disagree with your want to take your daughter to family planning the day she gets her period so much, it's not even funny. It's as if you're saying, "You're a woman now, go have sex!"
