In Maclean's magazine in the December issue, the front cover and lead article is on an oral contraceptive named Anya. This pill is taken 365 days a year, no placebos, no withdrawal bleeds. They represent both sides of the debate in the article: one female doctor says she "doesn't have time to menstraute" while other health experts say that there are benefits to withdrawal bleeding, including "flushing" out your system, and validating a non-pregnancy status.
I personally don't think I would take it, but what do you believe?

So, in the interest of keeping things tidy, go ahead and continue the discussion there (there's a lot of interesting opinions already, so have a read through the thread, it's interesting stuff).
