"This study provides preliminary evidence that hormonal contraceptives may have a protective cognitive effect, even years after use is discontinued," says Editor-in-Chief Susan G. Kornstein, MD, Editor-in-Chief of Journal of Women's Health, Executive Director of the Virginia Commonwealth University Institute for Women's Health, Richmond, VA, and President of the Academy of Women's Health.
