Inconsistent Evidence with Birth Control Causes a False Scare

Today’s society has created a huge suspension in the effects of pharmaceutical drugs due to their immense impact. Skepticism and doubt in birth control pills has been on the rise due to contradicting evidence done by research test. However, even with the media hype there is still a lack in proper biological evidence to say certain birth control pills are directly harmful.

The newest issue to arise is birth control pills that contain a newer form of progestin called drospirenone which increases women’s chances of getting a blood clot. Some tests have shown small results that there is a correlation between the new form of progestin and blood clots. Yasmin, Yaz and Ocella are the main birth control pills that are under review at the moment, because they are newer birth control pills and have a slightly different formula. Previous generations of birth control pills did not contain this new formula. More than 4,000 women are suing Bayer, which is the company that produces Yasmin and Yaz as well as more than 800 women have joined in a class-action lawsuit. Yet Yazmin and Yaz continue to stay in the market bringing in 2 billion dollars in sales in 2009.

The confusion lies in the contradictory research evidence. Other studies have shown that the overall risk of serious blood clots remains low with the Ocella birth control pills containing drospirenone. In fact a woman who is pregnant has a high chance of getting blood clots than compared to the chances they would have taking another birth control pill containing drospirenone.

Inconsistent evidence along with some isolated cases of a personal bad reaction and the media have caused a fear amongst Yasmin, Yaz and Ocella users. However woman that are obese, older than 35, are smokers or have family history of blood clots should not be taking birth control pills at all. Birth control pills react differently to everyone so it’s important to consult your doctor regularly. There are many other types of birth control pills which are safe and effective.

The Education of OTC Birth Control Pills Are Becoming Critically More Important

Birth control pills infront of calendar

Medication has been evolving at an alarming pace due to the advancements of technology and our understanding of it. Prescription and over-the-counter medications are being more readily available than ever before. The availability and complexity of birth control pills in our time of age requires a certain understanding.

It has been brought to light that American women have been crossing the border into Mexico to buy birth control pills. Women are doing this because it is cheaper in Mexico but of course the risks in Mexico are greater. Also many women in the States are denied at the clinic because of a contraindication.

It’s not just Mexico. Many places all over the world have OTC birth control Much of South America also has OTC birth control available.

The results of the birth control studies have been somewhat contradictory. This confusion has lead to no affirmative stance and publication to be announced. Dr. Grossman’s team reported in the March issue of Obstetrics & Gynecology that woman from southern Texas were using combined oral contraceptives from a family planning clinics meaning prescription birth control pills had a lesser rate of absolute and relative contraindications (5.3% and 8.6%) than woman who were crossing into Mexico to buy them without a prescription (7.4% and 13.4%, respectively). However, another study done by Dr. Grossman and his colleagues show, “distributing more pill packs at once and removing the prescription requirement would lead to increased continuation”. A new study shows that “women who obtained their pills at the clinic were 60% more likely to stop taking them”. The reason is thought of as for the discontinuation of the pill is the issue of access. The danger is buying the pill OTC doesn’t inform women of the combined dangers. The conditions include “severe liver disease, breast cancer, ischemic heart disease, stroke or complex valvular heart disease, thrombogenic factors (e.g., major surgery with prolonged immobilization or history of thromboembolism), migraine with aura, smoking at age 35 or older, breastfeeding less than 6 weeks postpartum, and blood pressure of 160/100 or higher”.

The studies by Dr. Newcomer show that women can accurately use a checklist to spot the risks of birth control pills, and use an automatic blood pressure machine to check for hypertension. What OB-GYNs and general doctors need to do is ensure the safety of their patients by removing the barriers women face in getting birth control pills and educating them.

New Study Reveals only 1% of Estrogen in Drinking Water Comes from Birth Control Pills

drinking waterA new study by Tracey Woodruff, PhD, MPH, associate professor and director of the University of California-San Francisco’s Program on Reproductive Health and the Environment, indicates that birth control pills only account for about 1% of estrogen in the drinking water supply.

There have been concerns that the estrogen contained in birth control pills causes environmental health concerns such as intersex fish, fish showing female traits such as egg production. But this new study sheds new light on the source of estrogen in water. Woodruff and her colleagues analyzed the source of estrogen in drinking water, and discovered that it is mostly coming from sources such as livestock waste, soy and dairy foods, and other pharmaceuticals, but not birth control pills. This study contradicts the idea that estrogen absorbed by the body from birth control pills is excreted in urine and eventually makes its way into the water supply. Instead, this research indicates that most of the hormone is removed during processing at waste water treatment plants.

The effect on humans of hormones in water is controversial. Woodruff’s research focused on the source of estrogen in our drinking water supply and not the effects of the hormones on humans. She mentioned that estrogen in water, no matter where it is coming from, can be contributing to human health problems such as breast cancer, early puberty and other reproductive issues. However, Jeff Stier, senior fellow at the National Center for Public Policy Research, a conservative think-tank based in Washington, D.C., says that there is no significant scientific evidence supporting the idea that estrogen in water causes human health problems.

No matter what the effect of extra estrogen in our environment, this study reveals that birth control pills are not a significant source of the hormone in our drinking water.

No Risk of Cancer from Birth Control

Birth control pills are one of the most popular and effective means of preventing unwanted pregnancies in the United States. They have been used for many years and have proved to be quite effective. However, in recent years some women have not been using birth control pills in fear that they will have an increased risk of cancer.

This is not true. In fact, using birth control pills can actually lower the risk of ovarian cancer by 50%. Also, breast cancer which birth control pills were linked to most strongly is also no longer considered a threat. It was found that the studies that declared birth control pills to be a factor in increasing cancer risk were in fact conducted in the ‘80s and have now been proven to be incorrect.

In addition to preventing unwanted pregnancies and reducing the risk of ovarian cancer, birth control pills have many other benefits. These include: regulating periods, clearing acne, preventing anemia, and preventing osteoporosis.

There are other studies that show birth control pills may still be responsible for a slight chance of cancer risk. This however does not seem to be proven. Overall, the advantages of taking birth control greatly outweigh the disadvantages.
