Episode 4: Destigmatizing the Pill

The pill aka “oral contraceptive pill, OCP “, “birth control pill” is a misnomer when used solely for HMB by a pre-teen or teenager and unfortunately, can be associated with a stigma. In the true sense, pill used for heavy period flow is in fact hormonal therapy. We will be referring to the pill also as hormonal therapy during this discussion and will clarify several misconceptions about it, thereby hoping for a wider acceptance of these medications.

Our mother and daughter duo is back, with guest, Dr. Janice Bacon, who is a general obstetrician & gynecologist with a subspecialty certification in pediatric and adolescent gynecology. Together, they discuss the stigmas and misconceptions of this medication. Hosted on Buzzsprout.
