Birth control pills is the most effective contraceptive to stop pregnancy, however, it is not healthy.
Birth control pills has some bad side effects that sometimes may lead to not do the normal bodily
processes of a person.
Birth control has some effects that affects someone’s menstrual cycle, it may stop or it may cause
cramps easier. Sometimes in this way is a good thing but it actually affects your bodily movements.
Here are 9 negatives side effects of birth control:
1. Blood clots – the most common side effect of birth control contraceptives. Birth control triples your chances of
having blood clots, while pregnancy and childbirth increase your chances five to ten fold. If you
experience any signs of blood clot, such as swollen leg or chest pain, immediately stop the pill and
consult your doctor for an evaluation.
2. Breakthrough Bleeding – this is most commonly found to be effective of low doses of birth control. It is considered to be
caused by hormones making the endometrial lining thinner and more fragile, and even more
exposed to wear and tear. However, some studies have shown that the longer you take the pill, the
less likely you are to experience breakthrough bleeding.
3. Mood Swings – mood swings, as well as symptoms of depression, are another side effect that some women may
experience during consumption of pills.
4, Milk Production – this is extremely important to those who are breastfeeding. Birth control medications can decrease breast milk production by up to 5%. Progestinonly pills like NorQD or Ortho Micronor don’t interfere with lactation but have to be taken at the same time every day, since they are slightly less effective
than combination pills.
5. Faux Premenstrual Symptoms – Everyone knows the before feeling – the headaches, breast tenderness, water retention, nausea, and mood swings. While these things
usually occur before you start the menstruation cycle, with birth control you might experience these out of random.
6. Destroys Good Digestive Bacteria – birth control pills actually destroy the useful bacteria in your intestines, which makes you more
susceptible to yeast overgrowth, lower immunity, and infection.
7. Disrupts Ovulation – The synthetic hormones contained in birth control regulate release and timing of specific hormones in the body to prevent ovulation. The pills avoid the maturation of a follicle for ovulation, one of the ovaries most important jobs. Over time, the ovaries may “forget” how to do their job on their own
because they haven’t been signaled with the right hormones at the correct time in the menstrual
8. Cervical Mucus Change – The pills has been shown to thicken cervical mucus so that sperm cannot reach the egg. Healthy
cervical mucus is important for conception because it helps sperm travel through the vagina and the cervix to meet and fertilize an egg.
9. Damages the Lining of The Uterus – the pills changes the uterine lining to make it unreceptive to the implantation of a fertilized egg. By controlling the body’s estrogen and progesterone levels with synthetic hormones, a pill does not
allow for the proper levels of progesterone to build a healthy uterine lining for implantation
Many women tend to take this at a young age and sometimes they won’t stop until they want to
conceive. The pill actually don’t cause infertility but, however, it impacts long-term fertility by “silencing a woman’s biological clock for so long that, in some cases, they forget it’s ticking away,” what some people say.
However, in some cases, women tend to forget or just ignore
that they are dealing with fertility issue because they are either used to the pain or the symptoms
