The Side Effects Of Birth Control

Sep 3, 2008
Some women have effects when taking birth control. If these effects last for more than three months, talk to the doctor about changing to a brand of birth control that contains a different dose of hormones. Do not stop the pills without consulting the doctor and starting a new method of birth control.

Side effects may include nausea, bloating, headaches, breast tenderness, bleeding between the periods and decreased libido. Very seldom, birth control methods can cause non-cancerous liver tumors. If someone experience persistent pain in the abdomen while on birth control pills, one should see the doctor.

Birth control pills that have estrogen can increase the risk of having blood clots. This is a small risk for fit women. Women who are at increased risk of cardiovascular problems, like women over 35 who smoke or women with high blood pressure boost their risk of heart attack or stroke if they too take birth control pills. They are frequently advised to use another method of birth control. Estrogen containing birth control pills are not suggested for women who have or have had:

1. blood clots
2. heart disease
3. stroke
4. high blood pressure greater than 160/100
5. severe migraines
6. heart defects

The issue:
Most hormonal methods of birth control are planned to work by suppressing ovulation. However, in a small percentage of cases ovulation may still take place. For some women, it may occur every single cycle. As a result, these contraceptives prevent pregnancy through a different method.

There does not seem to be a total definition of conception. To some people, idea occurs when an egg and a sperm join together. For other people, conception does not happen until a fertilized egg has rooted itself into the lining of the uterus. Depending on how define conception, hormonal birth control's ability to prevent the shoot of a fertilized egg can be seen as an interceptive or as an abortive technique.

Chose the best:
Women who vision conception as taking place when an egg is fertilized by a sperm may want to choose a non-hormonal method of birth control. Although these birth control methods are not usually regarded as forms of abortion, the personal views on conception and abortion may cause them to be placed in that category. It is up to every woman to weigh the pros and cons of hormonal birth control methods against forms of non-hormonal birth control and to choose for herself what she feels most comfortable with.
