This week I’m chatting with Holly Grigg-Spall, author of Sweetening the Pill: Or How We Got Hooked On Hormonal Birth Control. In this episode Holly gives us a 101 about how hormonal birth control really works and some of the common misconceptions we’re often told about the pill; the importance of fertility awareness education in making truly informed birth control choices; how hormonal birth control affects sexuality and we ask, does being critical of the pill make you anti-feminist?
