The Pros and Cons of Oral Contraception

Almost 30% of women who practice birth control turn to oral contraceptives, or “the pill.” This protects you from unwanted pregnancy and allows you to take control over your reproduction. While an oral contraceptive is good for preventing unplanned pregnancy, it can also come with several disadvantages.

Like all medications, oral contraceptives come with some side effects. However, some birth control pills, such as YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella, have been linked to dangerous side effects like heart attack and stroke. If you believe that you have suffered from such a damaging side effect from YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.

Advantages to Birth Control

Of course, the main advantage to oral contraceptives is preventing unwanted pregnancy. However, the pill also comes with several other beneficial side effects such as:

  • Control your period
  • Lessen menstrual flow and cramping
  • Reduced risk of ovarian cancer
  • Prevent iron deficiency or anemia
  • Regulate pre-menstrual syndrome

Although there are indeed many benefits to taking oral contraceptives, there are also many negative side effects associated with the powerful hormones supplied by the pill.

Disadvantages of “The Pill”

Some disadvantages of taking oral birth control include:

  • Weight gain
  • Headaches and dizziness
  • Nausea
  • Spotting or breakthrough bleeding
  • Mood swings

Additionally, some pills have been linked to even more serious problems, like liver tumors and dangerous blood clots. If you have suffered from any of these side effects, you should talk to a lawyer immediately.
