6. What 'medical' condition is going to result
if a man can't get a hard on? None.

What medical conditions can arise if a woman doesn't get the contraceptives prescribed for her? All the side effects of pregnancy, which include death. Look them up some time. Pregnancy isn't the safest condition.

Oh, and the pill is also used for things, like helping to prevent ovarian cancer;

Menstrual Cramps

For girls who experience severe menstrual cramps and over-the-counter medications do not help, oral contraceptive pills may be the solution. Oral contraceptive pills can help to decrease menstrual cramps. Because oral contraceptive pills prevent ovulation, they also get rid of pain that you experience with ovulation in the middle of your menstrual cycle.

Irregular or Absent Menstrual Periods

For girls whose menstrual periods are irregular (too often, too late, or not at all), oral contraceptive pills can help to regulate the menstrual cycle to every 28 days and provide the body normal amounts of estrogen to help protect the bones. Oral contraceptive pills also can reduce the amount and length of menstrual bleeding.


Oral contraceptive pills also improve acne. For moderate to severe acne, which over-the-counter and prescription medications can't cure, oral contraceptive pills may be prescribed. The hormones in the oral contraceptive pill can help stop acne from forming. Most types of oral contraceptives can be used to treat acne. Be patient though, since it takes several months for the oral contraceptive pills to work.

Other Medical Benefits
Because there is less menstrual bleeding with the use of oral contraceptive pills, you are less likely to get anemia (low number of red bloods, which carry oxygen from the lungs to the tissues). Oral contraceptive pills decrease your chance of getting endometrial (lining of the uterus) cancer and ovarian cancer, and ovarian cysts. So the pill has lots of health benefits!
