"Lives will be saved": The FDA decision not to ban Bayer's birth control pills

The final decision on drospirenone-containing oral contraceptives.

For the blog re:Cycling I have written a piece on the FDA's final decision on Yaz, Yasmin and other drospirenone-containing birth control pills that was announced last week.

This month I signed a publishing agreement with Zero Books for 'Sweetening the Pill.' I am trying to get my thoughts and feelings on these developments figured out. I've been writing about the birth control pill - and specifically Yasmin - since 2009. I may be cynical and all too aware, but this news still shocks me.
