Good news indeed for women on the pill!
The pill didn’t work for me at all, which is why, at 20, I had two babies, and started wearing an IUD (Paragard). At 40, I asked my gynecologist to switch me to Mirena, since it can curtail menstruation. But knowing that I am a smoker, she talked me out of it, citing that smoking while on hormonal birth control of any kind increases the risk of cardiovascular side effects, such as strokes or blood clots.
