    Menstruation - An Unnatural Event?

    I'm just sickened by this. One of the pioneers of Depo-Provera, which I've stated many times is one of the worst new poisons in the pharmaceutical market, has written a book explaining why women should take steps to spare themselves from the "affliction" of menstruating. Of course the solution is to take his drug, which will either eliminate bleeding or cause excessive bleeding. Roll your dice. They only tell you about the cessation of periods when they sell it to you.

    Aside from just another rant about how terrible depo-provera is and how I believe it will severely affect our children when they reach middle age, I'd like to say...

    Please don't buy this book! Is Menstruation Obsolete?

    You can read about it and this crazyman's ideas here. I want to hear your thoughts on the matter. How far will we go to alter ourselves with the idea that we are improving on nature?

    Why do women hate themselves so much that they take these drugs?

    I'm curious as to why this MAN cares.

    I read 3/4 of the article. This is not natural, and I am sure that there would be some side effects down the road. Every drug has some sort of a side effect. Why women would want to take chances with their body like this is beyond comprehension.

    What happens if you want to conceive a child? How can you tell whether you are ovulating? It just seems unnatural to not menstrate. Even though I hate it and who doesn't.

    Re: Menstruation - An Unnatural Event?

    Currently, doctors are refusing to document the myriad of side effects from depo-provera so they are "unfounded" at the moment. Stories include sever depression, drastic weight gain, muscle pain that can reach debilitating levels, endless bleeding or periods that don't return even years after stopping the drug, migraine type headaches...

    This man seems to care more about making a name for himself in medical history than in supporting the health of women. He's dangerous.

    Re: Menstruation - An Unnatural Event?

    Women reporting unofficial symptoms will be told that depo-provera can not be the cause.

    I have no idea why doctors are going along with this. Eventually women will be designated into another category, like fibromyalgia, or just told there is nothing wrong with them and it's all in their head. Likely put on anti-depressants.

    Re: Menstruation - An Unnatural Event?

    I read the article, anyone who is promoting his own medication in his book, is very suspect of falsifying the statistics to prove his point.

    (and the point that he is a man, never had a menstrual cycle, eyc. is ludicious that he should know what is best for women's health)

    Look at the current administration in this country who think they know what's best for women, ie. - family planning cuts, trying to curtail Title X, you name it they've screwed it up as far as women are concerned.
