For some of us women, even with birth control, menstrual periods are a discomfort that one would rather avoid. Even with birth control, my experience is still painful, I still get irritable, still feel dirty and unsexy in general. Since periods are not necessary when one is on birth control (this from my doc), it would make sense that a woman who feels very negatively about her period, would try to avoid it.
I am really sorry that menstruation is so painful and uncomfortable for you.
But I'm gonna stick with creation/evolution, whatever you believe in, and the biological fact that women have been menstruating monthly for thousands and thousands of years.
It can't possibly be good for us to artificially prevent it, while we are in our natural childbearing time of life.
And I think that someone such as yourself is entitled to all the medical support to alleviate pain as possible.
And sure, our reproductive organs can be unhealthy. Taking hormones can help some women, some of the time.
But, again, suppression of the menstrual cycle completely??? There's something wrong with that.
