The contraceptive pill is currently one of the most popular methods of birth control in the UK. It is used by over 3.5 million women daily, yet it remains a somewhat socially undisclosed topic. Through this series, I have investigated how our relationship towards the pill has altered over the last 50 years. By documenting the experiences of other women, interactions with pill manufacturers, historical research and self-exploration, I have been able to develop an understanding and stimulate a discussion around the diverse relationships that women in the 21st century hold with this tiny, 'candy like' pill.
