Contraceptive pills can be said to be one of the well-known contraceptive methods. In addition, contraceptive pills are a very simple method of contraception for both genders. However, it is best for aunts in grade not to take birth control pills. Because the ingredients in contraceptive pills can cause serious harm to the body. Generally speaking, the main ingredients of contraceptives are estrogen and progesterone. Middle aged women, as they are about to enter menopause, often have higher or lower levels of estrogen in their bodies. Taking contraceptive pills at this time can artificially increase estrogen levels, which can easily lead to estrogen level disorders. So far, the more estrogen accumulates in the body, the more susceptible menstruation is, and vaginal bleeding, breast swelling and pain, the growth of uterine fibroids, endometrial cancer, cervical cancer, and so on can also occur.
Especially for emergency contraceptives, women over 40 years old should not touch them. Because the dosage of emergency contraceptives is significantly higher than that of conventional contraceptives, such as Yuting containing 0.75 milligrams of progesterone per tablet, and short-term contraceptives containing 0.125 milligrams of progesterone. It can be seen that the amount of emergency contraceptives is equivalent to the amount of six short acting contraceptives. If repeatedly used in the short term, it will obviously increase estrogen disorders.
Usually, taking short birth control pills for 6-7 years and long birth control pills for 3-4 years should consider changing contraceptive methods. During the medication period, it is best to undergo a breast self-examination after each menstrual period and an annual cervical smear examination.
If women want to use contraception over the age of 40, it is best to use other methods. For example, having a husband wear a condom, undergoing infertility surgery, etc. In addition, at this age, it is best to go to the hospital for more examinations to prevent gynecological diseases, and to appropriately control the frequency of sexual activity also plays such a role.
Exposure of doubts about contraceptive pills
Misunderstanding 1: Oral contraceptives reduce fertility
In the West, many women know that oral contraceptives do not affect weight, endocrine function, or baby function, and that husbands are not covered. However, domestic survey results show that 23.84% of women believe that oral contraceptives can affect fertility.
On the contrary, many clinical studies have shown that oral contraceptives are usually reversible contraceptive methods, and the first cycle of discontinuation can restore ovulation without affecting the health of infants.
Experts have noticed that emergency contraception cannot replace regular contraception, nor can it be used as a regular contraceptive method. Taking it more than three times a year is more reliable than regular contraception, and has a certain impact on the next menstrual cycle. Improper use may also affect future fertility.
