Aside from side affects listed on packaging of the pill, what are other possible negatives from long term use of the pill for women ages 19-23. Are there any sources or studies for information on this? I have heard that the pill may help prevent ovarian cancer but may actually lead to cervical cancer? Is this true? Is there anyone I can lobby to encourage research into long term affects of the pill?
