Enovid was the original birth control pill brought a new world of reproduction rights to women throughout much of the world. These original pills were incredibly overpowered and thus a lot of women had side effects. That didn't slow down market acceptance, and millions of prescriptions were sold in just a few years. The freedom thes pills provided made it much easier for women in many ways, including to choose the timing or choice of their family building, making it easier for them to advance in the workplace.
