No, women don't need a 'break' from the pill every couple of years

No, women don't need a 'break' from the pill every couple of years



2018-05-16T10:20:00+0000

You may be surprised to know there is no biological evidence for “giving your body a break” and, in fact, it could do your health more harm than good.

More than half of 18- to 19-year-old women in a recent survey agreed that “women should ‘take a break’ from oral contraceptive pills every couple of years”. But there's no biological evidence to support this.

Legend! Glenn McGrath talks through his famous Test hat-trick against the Windies. ...

 

Comment on Facebook

I was there for that Hat trick, just wide of the sight screen . There were big queues still trying to get into the ground as the wickets tumbled .

Greatest bowler ever played the game with immaculate line and length. Sometimes unplayable

He was one of the fittest fast bowlers I've ever seen in my life who used to maintain himself brilliantly well......

One of our greats.. sure miss his speed and consistency.... Ooo aaa Glen Mcgrath

Great fast bowler all the time of cricket history.

Stephen Hamer them days when sticky tape wasnt invented 😂

His very good man!!!

Abir Mahmud not as good as you mate lol

MeGrath is my bowling sir and coch :) (y) <3

Absolutely awesome and a champion.

Josh Singer not as good as siddle’s

Oh ah Glen McGrath say oh ah Glen McGrath 💚💚

Paul Johnston weren’t you walking in the gate when he took the third ?

Grant Boucher where were you when this happened?

I was there with the old man. On the western side lawn and there were so many people waiting to get in as it was quite early in the days play. Poor people 😂

My absolute favourite cricketing moment!

In my dream Sir McGrath is still a famous cricketer.

More of the GREAT DAYS of CRICKET. God bless.

Matthew Said remember this hat trick when we were destroying the history room in year 10? Haha

Great bowler certainly in the legends category

One of the all time greatest bowlers, hats off to Glen McGrath 👌

Ooh argh Glen McGrath!!

Just love his consistency👍

Liz Knox ooh agh Glenn McGrath say ooh argh Glenn McGrath!!! ❤️💞❤️

Hoo haa. Glen McGrath !

Some glorious highlights of Mark Waugh's fielding genius as part of Legends Month over on cricket.com.au! ...

Mark Waugh, is SIMPLY THE BEST fieldsman that I have ever seen and I have watched a lot of cricket over the last 50 years!!!!

I hope some of those bowlers are still buying his beers - turned their pies into wickets!

My absolute fave Oz cricketer of all time. 🏏💖 My 7 year old fraternal twin boys think they are Steve and Mark Waugh!... as does their Mum!!

Loved him as a player, can’t stand him as a commentator

Who knew they had cameras at all our games watching me field Brayden Jarrad Daniel Aj Matt Mathew Louis

soft hands and amazing reflexes!

Will never forget him putting Vettori on top of Lillie marsh stand at waca!! what a star he was

Mark Waugh often appears to take catches after the ball has passed him. His ability to do this cleanly in one hand is the reason for him taking so many catches. He never went at the ball hard but went with the ball and as a result rarely fumbled a catch. His technique is unique.

Mark Waugh and Jonty Rhodes - the best fielders I have ever seen 🏏

Better get your lube and tissues out for this one Aaron Payne 😂

Brilliance in every aspect of the game .

Smorgasbord of brilliance there

Where’s that one where he took a bribe and the lied about it?

Gabriel Radus need to do some more practise with that Vortex ...

Still remember this catch of mark waugh of Inzi. It was Inzi who played extremely great in this innings against some top quality bowling in the shape of Glenn Macgrath and Shine warne

The BEST catcher l've ever seen. Simply brilliant 💚💛

One of the best pair of hands ever!

Should of shown some of the run outs too. The catches are awesome. But some of his run outs were unbelievable.

In my opinion he has the best hands in the field ever.

The best cricket has seen. I still love his lethargic batting.Making shots look so easy. I reckon he is one of the best players of leg glance.. textbook style 🙂

No wonder, Australia was the best team of that time.

He may not be in the same class as ones mentioned here but Nathan Lyon is pretty good on occasions.

Both Steve & Mark WAUGH's are LEDGENDS of the game,

Awesome,superb and astonishing Mark waugh.👌👍

Phil Lang remind you of someone in gully 😉
