For over 40 years the pill has been an incredibly popular form of contraception for many women worldwide. According to Wikipedia, over 100 million women take the birth control pill, including nearly 12 million American women. There are many reasons for the pill’s popularity over the years including its relative ease of use, low failure rate when used correctly, and the sense of empowerment it gave to women over their own bodies. Unfortunately, the effects are not all positive; there are also some very dangerous birth control pill side-effects for women to be aware of.
As outlined on bodyecology.com, among the terrifying list of possible consequences for birth control pill users are a higher risk of cervical and breast cancer, higher risk of heart attack and stroke, high blood pressure, gallbladder disease, infertility, benign liver tumors, loss of bone density, and increased risk of blood clots. Even more frightening is a recent article on BNET which explains that the current product labelling for the birth control pill is horribly outdated and does not reflect the newer findings about the increased cancer risks for users of the pill. This lack of information causes many women to feel safer with their contraception choice than they probably should feel.
Of course there are pros and cons to each form of birth control currently on the market, but women must keep in mind that the pill is a drug and like all dangerous drugs, it can have hazardous side-effects.
