Those herbs only reduced the risk of pregnancy by small amounts, and their reliability was poor even when they were prepared and administered in the proper amounts. No, the whole world and our relationships between men and women changed drastically and over night when a cheap, easy and reliable birth control method was introduced. Herbs played little or no part in that relationship in comparison to BCP's. And the vast overwhelming of practitioners of any semblance of medicine back then was carried out by women as childbirth was exclusively a female "thing".
