Davina McCall fronting hard-hitting new documentary The Pill about women turning their backs on contraception | The Sun

DAVINA McCall is fronting a hard-hitting new documentary The Pill about women turning their backs on contraception.

The 55-year-old TV presenter has presented two previous documentaries focusing on the menopause; Davina McCall: Sex, Myths and The Menopause and Davina McCall: Sex, Mind and the Menopause.

Now, Davina is turning her attention to the state of contraception in the UK and the struggle women face to access it.

The pill was a game changer but now, over 60 years after it was introduced, women are turning their backs on putting synthetic hormones into their bodies.

Oral contraception use has more than halved, while natural family planning methods have nearly tripled in the last 10 years.

On social media, women are speaking out about side effects they’ve put up with for years and saying enough is enough.

Concerned about the contraception choices that are available to her daughters and their friends, Davina investigates what is really happening.

She reveals the results of a Channel 4 survey, which asked over 4,000 people about the effects of contraception on their mental and physical health, and how easy it is to find the right information and solutions.

She investigates the myths and misconceptions that surround contraception and asks – are we doing enough to give women the care they need?

Davina's programme is part of a trailblazing line up of new provocative programmes on Channel 4.
