Ah, birth control. It’s a magical little pill that lets you have all the sex you want without any unwanted consequences. But is it really as harmless as it seems? In this article, we’ll explore the potentially harmful effects of birth control on your body and why you might want to think twice before popping that little pink or blue pill.
The Hormonal Havoc Wreaked by Birth Control
One of the biggest reasons why birth control isn’t great for your body is because it messes with your hormones in a big way. Let’s break down some of the ways hormonal birth control can negatively affect your mind and body:
Your menstrual cycle is like Groundhog Day, repeating itself over and over again every month until menopause (or pregnancy) takes hold. But when you start taking hormonal contraceptives like the Pill or IUD, things get thrown out of whack.
Suddenly, Aunt Flo may arrive at unexpected times (sometimes not arriving at all). This unsettling change-up happens because hormonal BC suppresses ovulation, while also thinning out and altering cervical mucus consistency so sperm struggles travelling towards an egg / fertilization fails – these changes interfere with safe rhythm-based avoidance.
With any luck, Aunt Flo won’t be showing up now thanks to hormone-laced drugs inside those pills! Unfortunately there could still be emotional side effects directly related to them disrupting brain chemicals/fluids (#EndocrineSystemDisruptors),as these are not naturally released from ovaries – they come pre-packaged in said contraceptive prescription. Some women report feeling moody or depressed after starting hormonal contraception which can lead to irreparable damage such affecting relationships due mood-altering medications performing physiological changes behind-the-scenes . They’re definitely doing something about A0 neurotransmitters/mood governing the happy/sad/horny behaviours & it’s worth knowing!
Some people can’t keep nothing down without them, while others seem to need toilet-side campout with bins close at hand in order to survive certain durations of hormonal BC – which it should be noted offers no guarantees. Nausea and vomiting might sound like just your average flu-like symptoms or stomach bug; But these may actually a symptom that hormone-based side effects are sending signals through nervous system pathways deep within gut (Achilles heel) 💩 ! Hormonal Contraceptives™️ adding further insult by requiring more battery-acidic digestive functions from those who have had GastroIntestinal Concerns previously will make things worse.
The Long-Term Effects of Birth Control on Your Body
Aside from disrupting your hormones short-term, there’s evidence to suggest that birth control can also impact your body negatively over the long term. Here are just a few examples:
Increased Risk of Blood Clots and Stroke
Surprise surprise! We’ve come across a little factoid: oral contraceptive use has been linked to an increased risk of blood clots because all contraceptive options containing oestrogen increase thrombosis risks – i.e., when platelet coagulation causes abnormal blood vessels/thromboembolic accidents where cerebral/stroke-related problems arise..🔒 1
Weight Gain/loss/ Stubbornness
Did you know some women report rapid weight gain after going on birth control? This is yet another potential pitfall..patients taking Depo-Provera injections said told me their moods were altered to hermit levels depression rates doubled in first few months; MCT fats (medium chain triglycerides) could help offset this non-body fat-building effect (#IntermittentFasting). In reality though most women attempting bio-absorption via transdermal patches, and vaginal rings instead of taking pills may still encounter the same weight fluctuations – so 🏋️♀reiterate exercise regularly to avoid unnecessary irregularities.
You know how we said birth control can suppress ovulation? Well, it turns out that for some women, those suppressed ovaries stay shut even after they stop taking BC. This could lead to fertility problems in the future — which is a pretty big deal if you’re planning on having children. don’t be alarmed by these figures.. as reduced levels of libido due hormone-induced depression through hormonal-disrupting pathways ending up leading towards low sperm count /delayed conception (even #PrimaryAmenorrhea). 🔒 2
Birth Control Alternatives Worth Considering
So, what are your options if you decide that birth control isn’t right for you? Here are a few alternative methods worth checking out:
Condoms “The Timeless Method”
It’s cumbersome – but hey,🚨at least there are no harmful chemicals involved! Condoms provide reliable protection against pregnancy and STIs while not adversely impacting hormonal balance or natural discharge cycles (#PeriodPositive).
Copper IUDs “weird metal inserts?”
For years people have simply opted out from using birth-control altogether choosing Copper-7 intrauterine devices instead; They insert an interesting little T-shaped device into uterus ⛓ which helps defend fertilization period from inside-out . One downside is increased bleeding & lengthy adjustment time frames when first fitted around internal region containing soft tissues including reproductive end points.#NoPainNoGain
Fertility Awareness Methods “Timing Tips”
Whether it’s mathematical tricks like tracking basal temperature daily or paying close attention to changes in cervical mucus consistency seems risky 😉 but this process helped grandparents prevent pregnancies and was highlighted☀️ in popular 90’s novel Our Bodies Ourselves (#OBOS) — time to revisit what once worked?
At the end of it all, only you can decide whether birth control is right for your body. But no matter what choice you make, remember that education and awareness are key when it comes to taking care of yourself. So before popping those pills, do some research +analysis because faith is not a substitute for scientific results/Chiropractic Testimonial in ❌ Modern Medicine!
