Recently, researchers have found that newer forms of birth control pills do not increase the risk of heart disease as much as previous generations of birth control pills.
Researchers determined that new forms of birth control pills that have come out in the last decade tend not to raise blood pressure to the same extent as the older forms. Scientists are excited by the findings because it means that one day birth control pills might be used as heart disease prevention in addition to contraception. While more research is needed regarding heart disease prevention, it will no doubt make all women happy to know that birth control pills are improving as made evident by the reduction in risk of heart disease in newer birth control pills.
Researchers also found that modern forms of birth control contain less estrogen which makes them safer while still being effective. In addition, oral contraceptives with certain doses of estrogen are safer for women aged 35 through menopause.
To this day, hormonal contraceptives such as birth control pills, vaginal rings, and patches are still the most common prescribed contraceptives. On average, 11.6 (20%) million American women use hormonal contraceptives. Since the introduction of the birth control pill in the 1960s, over 80 percent of women have used hormonal contraceptives in their lifetime.
Its reassuring for women since the risk of heart disease has always been associated with birth control, and now those risks have been reduced with modern advances in birth control.
