Hormonal Birth Control to Manage Menstruation
Some women seek hormonal birth control primarily to reduce the disruption to their lives caused by monthly periods. While most women experience relatively mild discomfort and irritability that accompany menstruation, some face debilitating cramps, heavy bleeding, digestive issues, or even migraines with each monthly cycle.
