Prochoice Periods

From the ladies at Gyno Gab: "Having monthly periods, or intermittent periods or no periods is a woman’s choice, there is no detoxification component to the menstrual blood."

As we are able to control our periods, even skipping the whole process all together by taking hormonal birth control without an "off" week, many have been concerned about the possibility of side effects from not menstruating on a regular basis. Well, as Gyno Gab points out, there is not detox element to having your period, since you are only really faking the whole ovulation cycle anyway. But there are some issues that may arise -namely, breakthrough bleeding and not knowing if you are preggers. So you need to make sure that you are taking your pill regularly, and if you have any signs of being knocked up (hurty boobs, wanting to hurl), take a pregnancy test. 

Other than that, it is really your choice when you want to get your period!
