Quote:In fact, not only have female astronauts already tried out the continuous-pill method (to much less fanfare than Sally Ride’s space tampons), but more women on Earth are opting out of periods too. Polls suggest that about a third of women feel they need to have a monthly period because it seems “natural” and reassures them they’re not pregnant, Jain says, but the bleeding that occurs during the week off the pill isn’t necessary, or even particularly natural. Women who take the pill continuously don’t build up a uterine lining that needs to be shed. And having a flow doesn’t ensure you’re not pregnant.

“It’s completely safe to suppress the menstrual cycle,” Jain says. Of course, the pill does come with some risks—blood clots in the legs and lungs are a main concern. But Jain says that studies have found no difference in health risks for taking the pill continuously compared with taking it for three weeks at a time.

Just thought it was an interesting tidbit of news to share.

FLAT EARTH TOPPED BY GODS GLASS DOME they can only fly in the relatively tiny air gap between land and the glass dome. That TINY AIR GAP is what they PRETENDEDLY LAUGHEDLY call OUTERSPACE! LOL!

The (so-called) BAD Aliens come from INNER SPIRITUAL SPACE FROM THE DEMONIC AFTERLIFE and the (so-called) GOOD Aliens come from INNER SPIRITUAL SPACE FROM THE HEAVENLY AFTERLIFE.

What they don't tell you is that YOU can TAP the POWERS of GOOD and BAD aliens and GO BEYOND BOTH to BECOME "ONE" with GOD'S INFINITE LOVE and TIMELESS LOVE and HAPPINESS FOREVER!

BEYOND ALL HEAVENS AND HELLS TO ESCAPE
ALL DEMONS AND THEIR NEW WORLD ORDER ILLUSIONARY VIRTUAL MATRIXES to FOREVER REMEMBER your DIVINITY. That THERE is FOREVER only YOU and that YOU were ALWAYS GOD!

I disagree, The menstrual period is a natural cleansing process, to suppress this will only make a women sick, in many ways.

That can make a woman hemorrhage later on in life, not a good idea !!!

I don't think we need to be messing with the hormones. We get enough of that through our diet and our close environment and the results are depressing. Suppressing menses with pills will have side effects and it would be a nightmare to have that happen in space

So far, I am reading that it is safe, but, of course, as with everything in life a new study may come along and turn it upside down.

How true that would be if we had to travel for decades.

Artificial gravity via centrifugal force could solve a lot of these dilemmas.

The fact is that the uterus can still shed it's lining in zero gravity, so that would not matter.

I had a female friend stay from interstate recently and she had her period the whole time.. She wanted to put the used tampon in the kitchen bin, I was like hell no, put it in the bin in the back yard.. I never realised how smelly it was.. I would lie if I said I wasn't totally grossed out by it.. But I feel bad that women have to go through that shït.. What a nightmare. So yes take the pill to stop it..
