Effect of hormonal contraceptive pills on the body system and why you should minimize the use.

Contraceptive pills came as a breakthrough in terms of women been in better position to control their fertility which has subsequently proven to be both effective and safe but may has some side effects. The overall use of these said pills greatly varies from country to country as approximately some percentage of women around the world under the age of 30 have used oral contraceptives at some time, with over 100 million women relying on it. As the use of birth control pill can lower the risk of pelvic inflammatory, uterine cancer and ovarian cancer.

The combined pill contains synthetic steroid hormones (estrogen and progesterone). Whose major work is to prevent ovulation. This pill is a reliable contraceptive, which is independent of sexual inter course i.e.  irrespective of sex, the pills must be used as the oestrogen and progesterone suppress follicle stimulating hormone(FSH) and luteinizing hormone(LH) production causing the ovaries to go into a resting state(the ovarian follicle do not mature whereby ovulation won’t take place normally).
We have various combined contraceptive pills such as beyaz, azurette, apri, microno, errin, Camilla. We also  have the common pill which is not strange to most Nigerian ladies, be it young and old that can be gotten from all pharmaceutical stores due to it easy accessibility .
 It is common in Nigeria as we have various ladies taking pills and not caring about the adverse effect of it on their body system and how it can cause hormonal imbalance, irregular bleeding, headaches, excessive vaginal secretion, nausea/vomiting, mood swings, reduce libido, poor cycle control, acne, weight gain, breast tenderness and high blood pressure, which serve as a great threat t their normal way of life.
There are numerous ways in which women can control their fertility which include use of male/female condoms of which has played a major  role in the prevention of sexual  infections, curbing of  human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and acquired immune deficiency syndrome (AIDS) , unwanted pregnancy and also the most important role & effective of all which is pre-marital sex.
We know that it’s not only unmarried ladies that take  contraceptives, married ladies take this too, but this is not the most effective way to control birth as better still yet family planning should be considered.
Note: Advice to all, let try to regulate the intake of these pills and make sure all intake are directed by a medical practitioner.
