The Dangers Of Birth Control Pills

January 24, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 181

Hundreds of million of women worldwide use birth control pills. Since its introduction over 50 years ago, these pills have influenced how societies, and women in particular, view the issues of sexual health and reproduction. The health risks of some birth control products have been well documented. Below are some of the dangers of birth control pills.

Many birth control pills (as well as the patch, vaginal ring and implant) contain high levels of synthetic estrogen that make your body think that you are pregnant. That's the reason you don't get your period. This is an unnatural an unhealthy cycle that has damaging effects on your body.

The use of the pill for non-contraceptive purposes is inadvisable. You may treat one problem but you'll be creating a bunch of new ones. Some women use birth control pills to fight acne, suppress menstruation or endometriosis. As inconvenient and tough as it may be on you, your body was meant to have regular cycles.

Menstruation actually has many health benefits like enhancing libido, getting rid of toxins and reduce bloating. It can also shed light on the overall health of the woman and help prevent disease. Menstrual suppression by taking birth control pills should be avoided as they interfere with the physiology of the body.

In fact, the Pill can disrupt testosterone levels, leading to sexual dysfunction, making it harder to climax and a decrease in desire and arousal.

That is the definition of cutting your nose to spite your face.

The pill can cause plaque buildup and blood clots in the arteries, resulting in an increased risk of heart disease and stroke. There is also an increased risk of breast cancer. Many women report other side effects- which are due to the artificial hormones in a woman's body when taking the pills- such as migraines, weight gain, nausea, irregular bleeding or spotting, thinning bones, breast tenderness, mood swings, infertility, high blood pressure, yeast overgrowth, etc.

Now, I don't know about you, but those are some crazy side effects. I'd prefer my "side effects" to be non-life threatening like a sore throat or coughing. Any side effect that include decreased bone density and blood clots are not drugs you should be taking.

Please do not continue taking hormonal birth control (pills, patches, ring). If you are adamant about not getting pregnant then use male or female condoms. They are safer and they work.
