The Pill

'It's time for all of us to join together to ask science for some new choices and for more information about what happens to us with the choices we have. We shouldn't have to change who we are to protect ourselves from pregnancy, and we should know enough about how our own bodies work to recognize that this is exactly what we're doing when we go on the birth control pill' Hormonal contraception is something most women will use at some point during their lifetime. But the reach of the pill goes far beyond the small number of targeted effects we take it for. It affects almost every system in our body. Column inches and anecdotal conversations prove there are many questions about the pill and its effects yet until now we have known very little about it, in part because research on our brains and our bodies was conducted almost exclusively on men. In this trailblazing book, expert psychologist Dr Hill reveals the latest science on the Pill, and how it's changing women and the world, for better and for worse. Did you know that the Pill not only creates a different version of yourself, but can change your brain, remove a key feature of your stress response, potentially increase your risk of depression and even have the ability to fundamentally change your mate selection? This is your Brain on Birth Control will open your eyes to all this and more, putting you in position of power so that you can understand the risks, weigh up the costs and make smarter, more informed choices about your health and hormones.
