    So, girls, would you take a pill that would completely stop your periods and the chance of pregnancy until you're 30 years old?

    There's no other side effects and the pill is irreversible.

    I wouldnt, I dont plan on having children until i'm 30ish but I dont want the option taken away from me. I really would be taking it just to protect me until I'm finished uni but there are so many other contraceptives I could use.

    Nope, I don't think I'd want kids until I was 30ish but wouldn't want to lose the option If it was 25 then I probably would.

    No, I'd like to have had children before I'm 30, so taking this pill is a nightmarish scenario for me. Being infertile for over a decade is terrifying in itself, too.
    Maybe you could chop the pill up, or just have a nibble of the end :dontknow:

    Agreed, if it were 25 I'd maybe consider, but if I'm lucky I'd like to have my first before 30, possibly two before.

    This. I'd rather just stay on the normal pill until I'm 30 and have the option of coming off it than take this irreversible one.

    I don't know. I don't think I want kids and I doubt I'd be in the position to have any before the age of 30 anyway, but if I decided I wanted kids I'd ideally want my first one before I'm 30.

    I've already got a son at 21, and plan on having more kids, although not for a couple of years...I could do with a nibble up until I'm about 25 too!!! But 30 is definitely to late for me, especially as I want atleast one more child - I don't think it'd be fair on my son for me to wait till he's about 10 for me to have all his siblings! Lol!

    Why do humans always want to stop the natural parts of our lives?
    I have a pill that stops you needing to take a crap. Do you want one?

    Have your period and have a goddam baby before the menapause kicks in.

    I think I want kids before the age of 30, but the idea of stopping periods through a single pill with no side effects is quite :sogood:

    I'd love a pill that stops me needing a crap. I'd even like a pill that stops me needing to eat (but doesn't prevent me from eating if I want). Old sci fi stories said we'd have meals in pill form by now, why don't we?

    I quite like having periods, it's nice to know that everything is in working order. I don't have any cramps/mood swings/get really spotty/other stuff some women suffer with during the time of the month, but if I did I might think differently.

    Also, I might change my mind and want children before 30
