Deciding to take the birth control pill is a very personal choice. For some, the Pill may also help in to make periods lighter, shorter, or more regular. It can also help to make cramps less painful, clear up acne/pimples, or lessen PMS. Getting use to taking the Pill every day can be helpful before making a decision to have sex. It is always best to talk to your health care provider so you can figure out the best choice for you-starting birth control pills or waiting.
