Though I recognize the value of the pill on the lives of lots of women, I really wish that there were more non-hormonal forms of birth control and/or hormonal birth control for men. Why do women have to alter their natural hormonal makeup and increase the toxins in their bodies just to prevent pregnancy? I have an IUD and love it and am happy to be baby free (for now) and also in touch with my body's natural rhythms.
