Yeah, I had to take HRT for a while but at least I went through menopause early and got it done.

Heh, which reminds me of how cheeky my son was when he was a teen. One of the first things he asked me at the hospital, after being assured that I was fine, was if he could have an increase in his allowance since I wouldn't have to buy tampons or the Pill anymore! I told him no because I'd still have to pay for HRT, unless he wanted to live with a wild, angry, erratic woman. That shut him up!

Ha-ha, he must've seen some samples of that to be so scared...

I missed #12 but did pretty good for someone who has never had to worry about birth control in her life

I missed 10, 12 and 21.
It has been 29 years since I've used anything but condoms.
The only thing I remember about the pill and cancer is that it can increase the risk of some cancer. Q#12. I dont know of anyone who was put on the pill without a pelvic exam even if it was not for BC.
I dont know squat about the DP shot but I have spoke to two younger women who believe it has made them unable to conceive.

What's funny is that I had a conversation with my daughter's doctor about this yesterday, before the quiz was posted. This daughter is disabled, and we're considering giving her the Depo shot, not for contraceptive purposes but to suppress her problematic cycles. She doesn't need a pelvic. He said that most doctors don't recommend that virgins gets pelvics anyway until they are at least 18.

Sorry but I don't agree with the answers. BC has been linked to cancer for one. And to take a break from a pill is a good idea. To not take one at all is the best idea. Also the false info about women not being able to get pregnant 2 months off the pill...everyone has problems for the most part getting preggers after taking the pill. IUDs can be felt when they slip out of place. So that is also wrong. Negative effects from depo can last the whole life. So that is also wrong. And you can get pregnant without having sex if semen gets around you area.

It really sounds like a campaign to sell medicine.....

The FDA will be happy to know that their mandated Accutane birth control knowledge is still strong in this one. 100%
