Hot (news) flash: the Pill suppresses fertility

By Phil Lawler (bio - articles - email) | Jul 10, 2014

Something’s seriously wrong with the headline on this story:

Birth control pills may damage women’s fertility, experts say

If you take blood-pressure pills, and find that your blood pressure is lower, you aren’t upset, are you? I mean, the purpose of blood-pressure pills is to suppress blood pressure. And the purpose of birth-control pills is to suppress fertility. So why is it a surprise if women who take birth-control experience lower fertility?

Oh, I see. You think that when you stop taking the Pill, the fertility that you hve been suppressing for years should just immediately bounce right back to normal? You’ll have to talk to Mother Nature about that.
