hmmm....I've got a question regarding the pill...

when taking the pill...we don't ovulate and the egg is not released...right?

Does it mean that over time, all those eggs that were supposed to be released, accumulate?

Yes. But we have so many eggs to begin with, that it doesn't really affect your body. They just get reabsorbed anyway.

Understand too, that even without the pill, we have WAY more ovum than we will ever have released each month. For every cycle where one is released, about another thousand "die," and those cells are just absorbed by the body.
