So there's a lot in the news today about a new contraceptive pill that also stops women's periods. It's probably very easy for me to criticise this as I don't have to go through it once a month. However, surely periods are just natural? They may be unpleasant, but they're not an illness, why do we need to cure them? I suppose it's the natural development of a society that reachs for the paracetamol every time they get a minor ache.
