Birth control and contraception have all of a sudden become part of the political landscape. This morning we took a closer look at this issue as it relates to a woman's health and the choices that are available with Doctor Kirk Brody.

Dr. Brody said that birth control is used for several other health issues besides preventing pregnancy such as preventing cramps and heavy bleeding. Dr. Brody also talked about several studies he has going on including for women, including diabetes and hot flashes.
