didnt like this one very much, I feel like the other episodes went more into the science (i.e. what's happening to the person's body) and this one was just about the ways she coped with it.

Good episode and thank you for sharing your story!!!There was some info I knew about the pill and a lot I didn't. Sex and pleasure are still taboo subjects, we sell it and put it out to the masses for consumption, and it boggles me. There was a lot I didn't know and found out own my own and im in my 30's. So whatever I learn in try to pass down to the willing.
