Great New Website and Resource - Bedsider!

A new health campaign started by the Ad Council is aimed at preventing unwanted pregnancies and helping and empowering women find a method of birth control that is right for them. is a new website aimed to educate and empower women about their choices in birth control.  The U.S. has one of the highest rates of unplanned pregnancy in the entire developed world. Nearly one in ten unmarried young women (ages 20-29) has an unplanned pregnancy each year. This means fewer opportunities to complete their education or achieve other life goals, and increased health and social risks for mother and child.  Know your choices, ask questions and keep yourself safe while having fun! 


  1. Did you know the World Health Organization ranks The Pill as a Group I carcinogen?

  2. Here is another link that discusses this fact I don't have any further information re: BCP as a group I carcinogen - if some one else does, please feel free to share.

    THe more information we have to make the best informed decision about our physical, sexual and emotional health the better!
