God, what is with me today and women’s health? You would think I had girls on the brain.
I happened across this the other day, and it is simply the most ridiculous thing I have ever heard. They are now selling chewable mint-flavored birth control.
Perhaps, the women out there can chime in on this, but is there any reason you would want your birth control to be chewable? Would you want your birth control to in any way resemble Flintstones vitamins?
It’s kind of stupid too because they are advertising this for the woman on the go, but if you chew it you have to drink a glass of water right after:
Sometimes it’s hard to establish a routine — the same time is just not the same every day. Femcon Fe offers an option for women with busy lives – spearmint-flavored pills that can be swallowed or chewed.* Now you can take your pill at the same time everyday, anywhere you happen to be. Femcon Fe is effective and reliable whether swallowed or chewed.*
*Immediately followed by a full glass (8 oz.) of liquid.
And I love the mint part too. I guess it is because if your breath is minty fresh you will have a greater chance of actually needing birth control.
Also, check out the commercial:
Why must all drug commercials involve some ridiculous activity like kick-boxing?
