For many women it comes once a month, the cramps, bloating, and cravings but a new pill could say goodbye to all that. The FDA just approved an oral contraceptive that does away with monthly periods.
It's called Lybrel, you take it once a day like other birth control pills but there's no week off. It not only prevents pregnancy it completely eliminates periods.
While doctors say it's no riskier than traditional pills others aren't so sure and want more research done. A third of the women in one study say they'd rather live without the monthly curse or at least have the option of doing so.
