Many women worry that if they go on the pill it will change the way their body functions or effect things such skin, weight and chest size. In part two of our pill answering session we're going to answer questions on the effects the pill has on the body. With the help of Rebecca Findlay from the Family Planning Association a charity which encourages positive, informed and non-judgemental attitudes to sex and relationships we're going to expel any myths you might have heard and make it clear for you to make an informed decision about whether you want use the pill as a means of contraception, or not. You must remember that the pill affects women differently, your body deals with hormones in its own way, and so what works for one woman might not work for another. As always it depends on you and your body. Rebecca says: "It depends on how you react to the hormone — some women notice an increase in their bust size, some women notice no difference at all and some notice their breasts get smaller. Going on the pill should stop, or at least ease, most symptoms associated with periods. This is because the hormones in oral contraceptives help to regulate your menstrual cycle as well as reduce the typical symptoms of menstruation.
