    I’m glad people are taking about this. I had the same experience of being prescribed birth control for incredibly painful periods through middle school and high school long before I was sexually active.

    Heck I even have devoutly Catholic friends using birth control for the above reasons, some even for extreme acne. Perhaps it should be called something other than just “birth control.” Like…body regulation pills?

      You bring a good point, which tackles the issue of labels that can exist. If calling birth control something else would help change mentalities, it would be great. I am unsure it would be the case, but it could be an avenue worth exploring.
