Extended use birth control pills (e.g., skipping your period)

Recently I was interviewed for an article which just came out called "Period Peace" for the Louisville Courier-Journal written by the C-J’s Darla Carter. The article deals with how extended-use pills (like Seasonale and Lybrel) work to suppress women’s periods, safety issues, concerns about spotting and light bleeding, concerns about  mood swings, and more and quotes from several doctors and sex educators are highlighted. You can read the full article here.
