    Hi, I was just wondering, if you are using the pill to replace condoms, what are the advantages for girls? (other than it means you aren't interrupted)

    Thanksss

    - Not having to worry about getting pregnant if the condom does break
    - Regular Periods (although they can be heavier depends on the girl)
    - Being able to miss a period if your going on holiday although doing that too often is bad

    Me and my bf still use condoms sometimes as well as me being on the pill as the 'mess' isnt nice i feel much better afterwards if we use a condom but it feels better for both of us without. Being doubly protected isnt a bad thing either obv.

    - It can feel better physically (for both the guy and girl)

    - Periods are not only regular, but also can be lighter and less painful.

    Thought that was kind of obvious, and itll all be explained to them if they go to the doctor..

    You can go for months without a period if you want. In fact when i went to the doctor a month ago to get more of my pill, he asked "how often do you want to have a period", and could give me more pills if i didn't want to have a period at all for a while!
    Plus it's harder to get condoms for free as they aren't available everywhere.
