Women and the Pill

Right, women and the birth control pill is fast rising topic coming with concern and there is a good reason for it: over 100 million women worldwide are using birth control pill, most of them from very early age and for more than a year or two. We take pill for a few reasons, mainly to prevent pregnancy, to regulate period, for crumbs, spotting, acne …but do we really understand how the pill works in our system and what side effects it brings.

Most of the birth control pills contain high levels of estrogen (in a natural cycle women experience rise and fall of estrogen and progesterone), by taking pill with high dosage of estrogen woman convince her body is pregnant so she doesn’t need to ovulate.

Pill can cause in women’s body:

  • Larger breasts
  • Weight gain or loss
  • Reduced or increased acne
  • Slight nausea
  • Emotional sensitivity right before your period
  • Mood swings throughout your cycle
  • Irregular bleeding or spotting
  • Breast tenderness
  • Decreased libido

 

 

  • Increased risk of cervical and breast cancers
  • Increased risk of heart attack and stroke
  • Migraines
  • Higher blood pressure
  • Gall bladder disease
  • Infertility
  • Benign liver tumors
  • Decreased bone density
  • Yeast overgrowth and infection
  • Increased risk of blood clotting

 

 

Now, knowing all this we might reconsider taking birth control pill, but what alternatives do we have if any at all?

There are more than one organization that works globally, such as WCG (women care global) informing women about risks and alternatives (tested and proven to work effectively).

Most common are: male condoms and female condoms (vegan, latex free options available) they are 98 % 95% effective. Also you could try Diaphragms (rubber mounted on a ring) and Cervical cap (heavy rubber cap), both need to be fitted by a doctor.

Our well being is in our hands ladies! Carry on researching and learning, because only we can help ourselves and love ourselves the most.
