Dr. Ronald Hoffman discusses birth control for teenage girls.

From the 4:19-6:30 point on his show last Saturday. Here is the link to the Podcast Hoffman Health Talk Podcasts It is the show Saturday July 30th part 1.  What are the side effects. Girls take it for acne or for having a difficult period. But the side effects are decreased bone density and at this age their bones are growing a lot. I guess similar to a study he mentioned that when women take the pill and do weight training they have lesser gains while on the pill.

It is funny he said if they had a male pill all the side effects he wouldn't take it and as he says it is fooling with nature.
