Whether that be to treat a hormonal disorder like PCOS, or Endometriosis, or to provide contraception, there are a variety of reasons that a woman may take the pill for years. It has long been thought that there has been no detrimental effect on fertility with oral contraceptive use. New information suggests a correlation between the health of the endometrium and birth control pill use, particularly in women who use the pill for an extended period of time.
