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?

Thanks.

Yay! FastCookie!

By the way, is she a smoker? If she is, stick to condoms or a diaphragm or something. Smoking + pill = bad blood clots.
