Oral contraceptives are artificial hormones that neutralize the effect of the hormones that control reproduction in the body nowadays are so safe that experts say: the probability that you will die during a trip to the pharmacy for these drugs is ten times higher than the death from taking these pills.
The bill is thus quite high in favor of security, especially considering that they are often used by women who intend to have children in the future, but do not want their appearance now.
A great achievement was that slowly, pill by pill, these contraceptives led us to the sexual revolution. In the end, just over one generation has grown since most women were so terrified at the prospect of becoming pregnant that they avoided sex until they put on a wedding ring.
Oral contraceptives have completely changed this attitude towards sex and the social structure that supports it. Eliminating the likelihood of unwanted pregnancy, oral contraceptives also eliminated the need for marriage until the time when a woman could show their sexuality.
How do oral contraceptives work? In fact, according to scientists, they completely change the reproductive function of the woman's body. They suppress ovulation, alter the composition of the cervical mucus in such a way that it is difficult for sperm to penetrate through it, affect the progress of the egg through the fallopian tube and change the lining of the uterus (endometrium), which prevents the implantation of a fertilized egg.
They are very effective. Only 3.8-8.7 percent of women taking birth control pills become pregnant, and in most cases due to improper use.
Of course, like any drug, these pills have side effects and their reception is associated with some risk. The most common problems that arise when they are taken are bleeding or bleeding, most often seen when taking pills with a low estrogen content. The less estrogen in the pill, the greater the likelihood that you will appear spotting.
Severe bleeding is, of course, an unpleasant thing, but at the same time women avoid even more unpleasant side effects that pills with a high estrogen content produced in the 1960s: nausea, weight gain, swelling of breasts, headaches, and changes in skin color. All these side effects are largely a thing of the past, say their creators, as well as problems with the cardiovascular system, sometimes arising from taking the previous pills.
