I got a few emails about articles in magazines that aren't about fall fashion, so let's do a little What's In the Magazines Section.
a) TIME ran a story on the high cost of birth control on college campuses. Due to a change in reimbursement law, college students will have to pay what looks like about full price for some birth control, and practitioners are worried that young women will substitute less effective methods of contraception, like Plan B or condoms, for the Pill, Patch or Ring.
TIME also has a piece on the increasing use of Plan B.
b) Speaking of things you can get over the counter, I saw ads for a product that tells you whether you have a yeast infection, or something else. It costs about $8.
c) Marie Claire has a few good articles, including one on surrogacy in India, a topic readers may already find familiar. Glamour did another story on surrogacy, but this was a complicated, domestic surrogacy situation. Another article in this month's issue is about anal bleaching, and other similar nonsensical procedures American women engage in - FGM is horrendous, but plastic surgery on the vulva? C'mon.
