Aside from its almost l00% effectiveness in preventing pregnancy, taking the Pill may also lead to less menstrual flow and cramping, a lower risk of infection of the uterus and ovaries, a decreased chance of developing ovarian cysts and non-cancerous breast cysts and tumors, less ovarian cancer and uterine cancer, less rheumatoid arthritis, and it may improve acne.
During the first three months of use about 40% of women who take birth control pills will have side effects of one kind or another. The vast majority of women have only minor, transient side effects. Some of these side effects are: light bleeding between menstrual periods, skipped periods, nausea, weight change, bloating, increase in vaginal infections. Although it is difficult to predict whether a woman will develop one of these minor problems, a problem can often be eliminated by changing your birth control pill.
Blood clots, stroke and heart attacks are the most serious side effects associated with birth control pills. These problems occur in only a small number of women who take the pill. Women who smoke, are over 35, have diabetes, high blood pressure, heart or vascular disease or blood cholesterol and triglyceride abnormalities have the most risk of developing these problems. Other serious side effects are worsening of migraine headaches, gall bladder disease, increase in blood pressure and an extremely rare liver tumor. Some birth control pills may cause changes in the levels of fatty substances in the blood. The long-term consequences of these changes are not known. Regular visits to your doctor are important for early detection of these health risks.
Certain drugs for epilepsy and tuberculosis, as well as certain antibiotics can reduce the effectiveness of your birth control pill. St. John’s Wort has also been known to reduce the effectiveness of oral contraceptives. You should always ask your doctor about any possible effect on birth control effectiveness when another drug is prescribed.
