    Dexatrim, Dexadrine: Well, ladies and gentlemen, this is basically a diet pill that has no herbal component, but I thought a little insight into this wonder would be helpful, too. I don’t have to tell you about the “high” you can get on these. I couldn’t deal with it. I had the funniest feeling as if I had chills on the side of my head; I had some low back pain and a headache with this little wonder. I felt very stupid for trying it, but I had to know.

    The modern-day contraceptive has its roots in the science of endocrinology, which has provided the understanding of the human ovulatory cycle and thus help develop effective contraception. In order to be fertilized, an ovum must first mature while still within its ovarian follicle. Its maturation is prompted by the release of follicle-stimulating hormone from the anterior pituitary gland. The release of this hormone is inhibited when the concentration of the estrogenic hormones, which modulates phases of the menstrual cycle, rises in the blood. Thus modern oral contraceptives inhibit the maturation of the follicles and their ova, so that fertilization can’t occur, by keeping estrogen concentrations in the blood at relatively high levels.
