Changed levels of endogenous sex steroids in women on oral contraceptives. (1/1279)

Serum and urinary levels of unconjugated testosterone, dihydrotestosterone, and oestradiol were measured by specific radioimmunoassays in 10 healthy women in the early follicular phase of their menstrual cycle and in nine healthy women taking oral contraceptives. The contraceptive group had testosterone levels 1-3 times higher and dihydrotestosterone levels two times higher than those in the controls. Serum oestradiol levels in the contraceptive group were much lower than those in the controls and similar to levels in postmenopausal women. The contraceptive group had about twice the urinary excretion of unconjugated (free) testosterone and dihydrotestosterone of the controls, but their excretion of unconjugated oestradiol was 2-7 times lower. The great increase in serum and urinary androgen concentrations, as well as the suppression of oestradiol, may be related to the antiovulatory effect of oral contraceptives.  (+info)

Oral contraceptive use: interview data versus pharmacy records. (2/1279)

BACKGROUND: If women tend to forget and underreport their past oral contraceptive (OC) use, but the recall among cases is enhanced by the presence of disease, recall bias may explain some reported health effects of OC use. METHODS: Two different sources of information on lifetime OC use were compared for 427 (84%) of a community-based sample of 511 women aged 20-34: (i) structured interviews, using a life event calendar and picture display as memory aids, and (ii) a register of all prescriptions dispensed by pharmacies in the county since 1970. RESULTS: Interview data and pharmacy records showed high levels of agreement for any OC use, current use, time since first and last use, total duration of use, and for duration of use in different 'time windows'. But there was a tendency to under-report specific kinds of OC used in the past. CONCLUSION: Underreporting of OC use among non-cases would usually introduce little or no bias (as compared to pharmacy records) for this kind of interview and women. However, it may be preferable to use interviews for current OC use, and pharmacy records for specific kinds of OC used in the past.  (+info)

Pigment epithelial windows and drusen: an animal model. (4/1279)

Aging rhesus monkeys, both controls and those undergoing long-term administration of investigational oral contraceptive steroids, developed widespread hyperfluorescent dots at the posterior pole. The dots were considered to represent drusen. Histologic (including electron microscopic) study showed the "drusen" in some of the animals to be almost exclusively pigment epithelial windows produced by a lipoidal degeneration of the pigment epithelial cells. The experiment provided a fortuitous model for direct correlation of clinical and histologic observations of myriad uniform, tiny, depigmented, hyperfluorescent, nonleaking spots at the level of the retinal pigment epithelium.  (+info)

Moderate physical activity in relation to mammographic patterns. (6/1279)

High-risk mammographic patterns may be used as a surrogate end point for breast cancer in etiologic research as well as in prevention studies. Physical activity may be one of the few modifiable risk factors for breast cancer. We examined the relationship between physical activity and mammographic patterns among 2720 Norwegian women, ages 40-56 years, who participated in both the Second and Third Tromso studies. Epidemiologic data were obtained through questionnaires. Two questions from the Second Tromso study and five questions from the Third elicited information on physical activity. The mammograms were categorized into five groups based on anatomical-mammographic correlations. For analysis, patterns I through III were combined into a low-risk group and patterns IV and V into a high-risk group. Odds ratios that were adjusted for age, education, menopausal status, body mass index, parity, age at menarche, oral contraceptive use, and alcohol intake, with 95% confidence intervals, were estimated using logistic regression. Women who reported moderate physical activity, i.e., more than 2 h/week, were 20% less likely (odds ratio, 0.8; 95% confidence interval, 0.6-1.1) to have high-risk mammographic patterns compared with those who reported being inactive. This relationship remains consistent when stratified by menopausal status, parity, and tertiles of body mass index. However, all of the associations between various measures of physical activity and high-risk patterns found in this study are weak with confidence intervals that include 1.0. Thus, chance is a reasonable explanation for the weak associations found. The relationship between physical activity and high-risk patterns should be examined further as a means to explore the biologic mechanisms relating physical activity to breast cancer risk.  (+info)

The risk of serious illness among oral contraceptive users: evidence from the RCGP's oral contraceptive study. (7/1279)

BACKGROUND: So far, no-one has attempted to evaluate the overall balance of serious, but not necessarily fatal, disease among a cohort of oral contraceptive users. AIM: To emprirically assess the balance of risk of serious illness among a cohort of oral contraceptive users followed up for up to 28 years. METHODS: Oral contraceptive-associated serious disease was defined as that which is often life-threatening and/or associated with long-term disability, and which has been found, or postulated, to be associated with use of combined oral contraceptives. Data from the Royal College of General Practitioners' (RCGP) Oral Contraception Study were examined to determine the rate of such conditions during 335,181 woman-years of observation in 'ever users' and 228,727 woman-years in 'never users'. The rates were standardized for age, parity, social class, and smoking. RESULTS: Compared with never users, ever users had a small increased risk of any serious disease (relative risk = 1.17; 95% confidence interval = 1.09-1.25). Ever users had an excess risk of cerebrovascular disease, pulmonary embolism, and venous thromboembolism, and reduced risk of ovarian and endometrial cancer. The increased risk was seen only in younger women; by the age of 50, ever users had the same risk as never users. The risk appeared to be confined to women using older oral contraceptives containing 50 micrograms or more of oestrogen. CONCLUSIONS: Past users of older, higher dose oral contraceptives can be reassured that the small increased risk of serious disease seen during current use does not persist after stopping, and that latent effects do not appear later in life. Currently available oral contraceptives, containing less than 50 micrograms of oestrogen accompanied by the progestogen, levonorgestrel, or norethisterone acetate, do not appear to be associated with an increased net risk of serious disease.  (+info)

Interaction between the G20210A mutation of the prothrombin gene and oral contraceptive use in deep vein thrombosis. (8/1279)

Single-point mutations in the gene coding for prothrombin (factor II:A20210) or factor V (factor V:A1691) are associated with an increased risk of venous thromboembolism. The use of oral contraceptives is also a strong and independent risk factor for the disease, and the interaction between factor V:A1691 and oral contraceptives greatly increases the risk. No information is available about the interaction between oral contraceptives and mutant prothrombin. We investigated 148 women with a first, objectively confirmed episode of deep vein thrombosis and 277 healthy women as controls. Fourteen patients (9.4%) were carriers of factor II:A20210, 24 (16.2%) of factor V:A1691, and 4 (2.7%) of both defects. Among controls, the prevalence was 2.5% for either factor II:A20210 or factor V:A1691, and there was no carrier of both the mutations. The relative risk of thrombosis was 6-fold for factor II:A20210 and 9-fold for factor V:A1691. The most prevalent circumstantial risk factor in patients and the only one observed in controls was oral contraceptive use, which per se conferred a 6-fold increased risk of thrombosis. The risk increased to 16.3 and 20.0 when women with factor II:A20210 or factor V:A1691 who used oral contraceptives were compared with noncarriers and nonusers. These figures indicate a multiplicative interaction between the genetic risk factors and oral contraceptives. No difference in the type of oral contraceptives was observed between patients and controls, those of third generation being the most frequently used (73% and 80%). We conclude that carriers of the prothrombin mutation who use oral contraceptives have a markedly increased risk of deep vein thrombosis, much higher than the risk conferred by either factor alone.  (+info)

A major strength of the study was the ability to include more than a million woman years of observation, accumulated over a 39 year period and involving nearly three times as many deaths (a total of more than 4600) as before.4 A previous study has shown good agreement between the cause of death reported by the general practitioners and that on the death certificate.7 Although both sources of information are prone to error in the attribution of underlying cause of death, we have no reason to suspect systematic differences because of a womans use (or not) of oral contraception. This is especially so for more recent events, for which most of the doctors certifying the deaths will have been unaware of the contraceptive history of the deceased woman.. We were able to adjust for the potentially important confounding factors of age, smoking, social class, parity, and (for some analyses of the general practice observation subset) use of hormone replacement therapy. The adjustments tended to make little ...
If you are considering stopping birth control pills there are several things to consider. First, if you are concerned about contraception there are choices available that do not contain synthetic hormones. Also, natural hormones can be effective for dealing with menstrual issues and dont have the side effects of synthetic hormones.. When tapering off synthetic hormone birth control pills, note that the process takes several months. This allows your natural hormones to return to balance. This is important because your natural hormones were suppressed while taking birth control pills. It is also safe to use hormone supplements during this time.. Note that if you need to continue using birth control pills with synthetic hormones, ask your medical provider about supplementing with natural hormones.. Want to learn more about birth control pills? You can read the full post by Amen Clinics here: The Truth About Birth Control Pills and Hormones.. ...
Some types of progestins can have androgenic effects and some women on birth control pills with an older formulation can find hair loss or hirsutism is actually promoted by the pill. Synthetically made progestins in birth control pills are not the same as naturally produced progestins like progesterone. Some synthetic progestins are structurally very similar to testosterone and/or estrogen so their androgenic or antiandrogenic effects supplement an individuals natural hormone production levels. The response is quite variable from person to person. While some people have excess hair growth from using the pills others may develop hair loss.. New birth control pill formulations contain progestins with less androgenic activity. For example norgestimate or desogestrel are non-androgenic progestins used in modern birth control pill formulations. Those that find birth control pills promote excess hair growth or hair loss usually find switching to another formulation helps. Excess hair growth is ...
The combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP) is a contraceptive for women. It is often called birth control pill or simply The Pill. The pills contain hormones that make the women who take them infertile. Women who take the pill will not become pregnant during sexual intercourse. When a woman stops taking the pills, she will usually become fertile again. When taken as prescribed, the pills are one of the safest methods of contraception. In the 1950s, scientists (such as Carl Djerassi, George Rosenkranz and Alejandro Zaffaroni) realized that the hormone progesterone stopped women from making eggs (stopped ovulation). After this discovery, the combined oral contraceptive pill was created.[1] The combined oral contraceptive pill has two female hormones: estrogen and progesterone. Some oral contraceptive pills have only progesterone. These are often called the minipill. The combined oral contraceptive pill is thought to be safe and usually works well.[2] In the United States, the combined oral ...
Q: I was previously on birth control for almost 2 years and in the middle of April I stopped taking birth control pills. At the begining of June I started back on birth control again. Is it safe to have protected sex now with just the pill and without using another form of birth control, or do I have to wait an entire month after starting on birth control?. A: You will be protected from getting pregnant after 7 days of consistent use of birth control pills. Consistent use means that youre taking the pill every day at the same time (plus or minus 2 hours). So basically, one week of birth control pills is enough to put the ovaries to sleep and keep you from getting pregnant.. However, having the phrases protected sex and without using another form of birth control in the same sentence makes us a little nervous. We can not stress enough that birth control pills (or patches or shots or IUDs) only protect you from getting pregnant. They do NOT protect you from contracting sexually transmitted ...

According to a Harvard University Study, women may be three times more likely to develop Crohns disease if they have used oral contraceptive pills for five years or more. The risk was especially pronounced in women who already had a genetic predisposition to chronic gastrointestinal disease.. While the pill is widely used and highly effective in preventing pregnancy, it has adverse effects.. The study involved 232,452 American women with no prior history of ulcerative colitis (UC) or Crohns disease (CD) from 1976 to 2008. They found 315 cases of CD and 392 cases of UC.. The results of the study were such that compared with women who had never used oral contraceptives, current users had a 2.82 multivariate-adjusted hazard ratio for CD. For past users, the hazard ratio was 1.39.. Reflecting on the strong association between use of oral contraceptives and CD, the authors note that, After adjusting for known or potential risk factors for CD, including BMI, smoking, hormone use, age at menarche, ...
Oral contraceptives, abbreviated OCPs, also known as birth control pills, are medications taken by mouth for the purpose of birth control. Two types of female oral contraceptive pill, taken once per day, are widely available: The combined oral contraceptive pill contains estrogen and a progestin The progestogen-only pill Ormeloxifene is a selective estrogen receptor modulator which offers the benefit of only having to be taken once a week. Emergency contraception pills (morning after pills) are taken at the time of intercourse, or within a few days afterwards: Levonorgestrel, sold under the brand name Plan B Ulipristal acetate Mifepristone and misoprostol, when used in combination, are more than 95% effective during the first 50 days of pregnancy. The combination is administered by a physician, and is only used as a last resort Male oral contraceptives are currently not available commercially, although several possibilities are in various stages of research and ...
Background: Understanding the effect of oral contraceptives on risk of breast cancer in BRCA1 or BRCA2 mutation carriers is important because oral contraceptive use is a common, modifiable practice.. Methods: We studied 497 BRCA1 and 307 BRCA2 mutation carriers, of whom 195 and 128, respectively, had been diagnosed with breast cancer. Case-control analyses were conducted using unconditional logistic regression with adjustments for family history and familial relationships and were restricted to subjects with a reference age under 50 years.. Results: For BRCA1 mutation carriers, there was no significant association between risk of breast cancer and use of oral contraceptives for at least 1 year [odds ratio (OR), 0.77; 95% confidence interval (95% CI), 0.53-1.12] or duration of oral contraceptive use (Ptrend = 0.62). For BRCA2 mutation carriers, there was no association with use of oral contraceptives for at least 1 year (OR, 1.62; 95% CI, 0.90-2.92); however, there was an association of elevated ...
Oral contraceptives are medicines taken by mouth to help prevent pregnancy. Also known as birth control pills, they contain artificially made forms of twohormones produced naturally in the body. These hormones, estrogen and progestin, regulate a womans menstrual cycle. When taken in the proper amounts, following a specific schedule, oral contraceptives are very effective in preventing pregnancy.. Oral contraceptives have several effects that help prevent pregnancy. For pregnancy to occur, an egg must ripen inside a womans ovary, be released, and travel to the fallopian tube (the passageway from the ovary to the uterus). Amans sperm must also reach the fallopian tube, where it fertilizes the egg.Then the fertilized egg must travel to the womans uterus (womb), where it lodges in the uterus lining and develops into a fetus. The main way that oral contraceptives prevent pregnancy is by keeping an egg from ripening fully. Eggs that do not ripen fully cannot be fertilized. In addition, birth ...
Follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone are produced by the pituitary gland which is located at the base of the brain. These two hormones coordinate the development and release of an egg from the ovary. A surge in both of these hormones ordinarily occurs in the middle of a womans menstrual cycle.. Follicle stimulating hormone stimulates ovarian egg production. Luteinizing hormone triggers egg released from the ovary: ovulation. Oral contraceptive pills inhibit the production of both follicle stimulating hormone and luteinizing hormone; as such oral contraceptive pills prevent ovulation.. Another contraceptive mechanism of (combined) birth control pills is to prevent fertilization. Combined oral contraceptives effect cervical secretions. The progestin contained in the birth control pill causes the cervical secretion to thicken which impedes sperm, little or no sperm enter the uterine cavity; as such fertilization cannot occur.. Oral contraceptives do not terminate a pregnancy, they ...
Not all birth control pills can be used for emergency contraception but some can. Here you will find all the birth control pill brands available worldwide that contain the hormones that have been most widely studied and found to be safe and effective as emergency contraceptive pills (morning after pills or day after pills).. Two types of birth control pills have been well researched in clinical trials for their use as emergency contraception. The first contains levonorgestrel, a form of the female hormone progesterone; they are often called progestin-only or mini pills.

Side effects of birth control pills may keep women from using them as planned. Attempts to decrease side effects led to the two-phase pill. Pills with phases provide different amounts of hormones over three weeks. Whether two-phase pills lead to fewer pregnancies than one-phase pills is unknown. Nor is it known if the pills give better cycle control or have fewer side effects. This review looked at whether two-phase pills worked as well as one-phase pills. It also studied whether women had fewer side effects with these pills.. We did a computer search for studies of birth control pills with two phases versus pills with one phase. We also wrote to researchers and manufacturers to find other trials. We included randomized trials in any language. We found only one trial that looked at one-phase versus two-phase birth control pills. The study authors did not report all their methods. Many of the women dropped out of the trial, and the authors did not give the reasons. The pills did not differ in any ...
After pregnancy do I have to wait for my period to start before I can start the pill again?. How soon you can start birth control pills after a pregnancy depends on whether you gave birth, had an abortion, or had a miscarriage. It also depends on what kind of pill you use.. If youve had an abortion or a miscarriage, you can start taking birth control pills right away.. If youve given birth, when you can start taking birth control pills depends on which kind of pill youre taking. You can start taking progestin-only pills right away.

WEDNESDAY, March 23, 2016 (HealthDay News) -- Teen girls who take birth control pills may be less likely to seriously injure their knees than those who dont take the pill, a new study suggests.. Young athletes currently use birth control pills for various reasons, including more predictable cycles and lighter periods, said study author Aaron Gray, an M.D./Ph.D. student at the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston.. Injury risk reduction could potentially be added to that list, he said, if future studies confirm what the new study found. The study did not prove a cause-and-effect relationship between birth control pills and knee injuries. The researchers only found an association between these factors.. Female athletes are up to twice as likely to suffer an anterior cruciate ligament (ACL) injury as male athletes, the study authors said. The ACL connects the top and bottom parts of the knee.. Researchers reviewed data from more than 23,000 girls between the ages of 15 and 19 in the ...

Dear President Obama and HHS Secretary Sebelius: Publicize the fact that birth control pills are a Group I carcinogen (in the same group as tobacco) now that women can get them free of charge. The free availability of birth control pills (BCP) has received widespread publicity. What hasnt been publicized as well is the cancer risk associated with taking them. Its just human nature that if something is free more people will take it. So now more women than ever will probably take BCPs since they are going to be provided free of charge because of the Affordable Care Act. Yet according to the World Health Organizations 2012 Review of Human Carcinogens: There is sufficient evidence in humans for the carcinogenicity of combined estrogen-progestogen oral contraceptives. Combined estrogen-progestogen oral contraceptives cause cancer of the breast, in-situ and invasive cancer of the uterine cervix, and cancer of the liver.1 Even the American Cancer Society classifies estrogen-progestogen oral ...

Continuous oral contraceptive administration entails women taking hormonally active pills for 28 days without a seven day placebo week to avoid hormonal withdrawal bleeding. Unfortunately, with continuous administration, timed, regular bleeding can be replace by irregular, unscheduled bleeding, which often leads to dissatisfaction, discontinuation and the possibility of unplanned pregnancy..

There are two kinds of hormonal birth control pills: (1) the combination pill which contains estrogen and progestin and (2) the progestin-only pill (known as the minipill). Combo pills are significantly more effective than progestin-only pills and have the added benefit of less breakthrough bleeding. However, some women cannot tolerate estrogen and prefer the progestin-only pill. Both types of pills are available in several different brands, each of which have slightly different blends of hormones.. These two kinds of hormonal birth control are available in other forms besides pills. The combination formula is also available as a patch and a vaginal ring. The progestin-only formula is also available in intramuscular shots (Depo-Provera), an implant (Implanon), and in intrauterine devices (the Mirena IUD).. Some women may prefer these other forms of hormonal birth control because they can be taken less often (and consequently are easier to remember). While birth control pills must be taken ...
Birth control pills are made of hormones that prevent ovulation. The hormones in the pill also cause changes in the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus. The cervical mucus thickens, which blocks the sperm from entering the cervix. The lining of the uterus thins, making it less likely that a fertilized egg can attach to it. Together, these events make it very unlikely that someone taking the pill will become pregnant.. The pill is a very effective form of birth control. When women use the pill correctly, fewer than 1 in 100 will get pregnant over 1 year. But, about 8 in 100 typical users (8%) will become pregnant. This is because one or more pills may be missed or are not absorbed (due to vomiting for instance). If this occurs, a backup method of birth control, such as a condom or spermicides, should be used. If pills are missed and a backup method is not used, emergency contraception can be used to prevent pregnancy.. The birth control pill is easy to use and convenient. But it does not ...
We found no studies that measure, or even estimate, any increase in pregnancy rates in women taking antiepileptic drugs. Antiepileptic drugs known to induce the hepatic cytochrome P450 (CYP450) isoenzyme cause decreased sex hormone levels in women taking oral contraceptives, raising the potential for decreased effectiveness of oral contraceptives and increased risk of unplanned pregnancy. (Strength of Recommendation [SOR]: C, based on small cohort studies). Antiepileptic drugs that do not induce this hepatic isoenzyme are not thought to compromise the effectiveness of oral contraceptives. (SOR: C, based on small cohort studies and randomized controlled trials ...

Some people wrongly believe that if they take birth control pills, they are protecting themselves not only from getting pregnant but also from infection with HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). Birth control pills or other types of birth control, such as intrauterine devices (IUDs), Depo-Provera, or tubal ligation will NOT protect you from HIV and other STDs.. The male latex condom is the only birth control method that is proven to help protect you from HIV and other STDs. If you are allergic to latex, there are condoms made of polyurethane that you can use. Condoms come lubricated (which can make sexual intercourse more comfortable and pleasurable) and non-lubricated (which can be used for oral sex).. It is important to only use latex or polyurethane condoms to protect against HIV and other STDs. Natural or lambskin condoms have tiny pores that may allow for the passage of viruses like HIV, hepatitis B and herpes. If you use non-lubricated condoms for vaginal or anal sex, ...

Objectives: Oral contraceptives (OCP) are highly effective, safe and widely used. Higher exposure to endogenous and exogenous estrogens is generally thought to increase the risk of breast cancer. Therefore, this study was conducted to determine if oral contraceptive use affected the expression of CA 15-3, CEA and C-erb B-2 in the saliva of healthy women. Study design: The participants consisted of 87 healthy women (43 controls and 44 using oral contraceptives) ranging in age from 20 to 54 years. The volunteers participated by giving one ? time stimulated whole saliva samples. Then the samples were analysed for CA 15-3, CEA and C-erb B-2 concentrations. Results: The student t-test was used to compare group means for variables with comparable variability. The mean of C-erb B-2, CEA, and CA 15-3 concentrations (in the case and control groups) was (1.93, 1.70), (34.46, 31.62) and (12.58, 16.19) respectively. These differences were not statistically significant. Conclusions: Our findings suggest that ...
Approximately 11.6 million women in the United States use oral contraceptives (OCs) each year. The vast majority of OCs combine both estrogen and a type of progestin, or progesterone-like substance into one pill which is taken daily. Depression or a negative change in mood, apparently resulting from the use of OCs, is thought to be one of the main reasons women miss pills or stop taking their oral contraceptive pills (OCPs) altogether. Clinical observation that some women develop depression when taking progestin only OCs or when adding progestins to menopausal estrogen therapy has led to the speculation that the progestin is the likely culprit of these negative mood changes in women using combined OCPs.. The current study is designed to investigate the role of progestins in the development of mood symptoms in OCP users. Women participating in this study will receive one of two different OCPs for three months. Their mood while taking the OCPs will be compared to their mood prior to using OCPs. In ...
In this follow-up study of African American women, oral contraceptive use was more strongly associated with an increased risk of ER−PR− breast cancer than of ER+PR+ breast cancer. The incidence of ER−PR− breast cancer increased significantly among recent users as the duration of use increased, with the largest increase (2.5-fold) among recent users whose duration of use was 10 or more years. However, there were some inconsistencies in that the incidence of ER−PR− cancer was also significantly increased for some shorter-duration and nonrecent categories of use. For ER+PR+ cancer, results were null for most categories of interval since last use and duration but there was a significant increase (1.66-fold) for recent users with 10 or more years of use. Results for ER+PR− tumors were null, but the numbers were small.. The present results strengthen the evidence that there is a stronger association of oral contraceptive use with ER− cancer than with ER+ cancer (32). In several ...
If youre familiar with MTHFR mutations, then youve probably already figured out why this is a no-win situation for us MTHFR gals, but if youre not then read on. Birth Control Pills are known to deplete folate levels in women and have been known to do so since the 80s. This is a problem for all women, but especially those who have compromised folate metabolism in the first place (ahem, thats us MTHFR folks). This folate depletion is part of the reason for some of the most common side effects of birth control pills - fatigue, mild depression, even acne. Its also linked to an increased risk of neural tube defects in babies born to women who have recently stopped using birth control pills.. Due to the risk of neural-tube defects in women who become pregnant after recently stopping birth control pills, a new folate-fortified pill called Beyaz ® has been developed. In good news, it is supplemented with an active form of folate so if youre an MTHFR gal and you absolutely must take oral ...

No serious problems have been reported from a birth control pill overdose, even when accidentally taken by children.. Do Birth Control Pills Cause Cancer? Birth control pills do not appear to cause breast cancer. However, if you have breast cancer now, or have had it in the past, do not use birth control pills because some breast cancers are sensitive to hormones. Women who use birth control pills may have a slightly higher chance of getting cervical cancer. However, this may be due to other reasons such as having more sexual partners..

At present, the combined oral contraceptive pill is approved for contraception by regulatory authorities such as the European Medicines Agency (EMA) and the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA), and they would require a randomised controlled trial to in order to include dysmenorrhoea treatment as another indication for COC use, although some doctors already prescribe it off-label to help with painful periods.. Dr Lindh said: We are aware that drug companies have discussed with the authorities the possible design of a randomised controlled trial for the evaluation of COCs in the treatment of dysmenorrhoea but this has not yet been finalised or performed. However, our study has clearly indicated a beneficial influence of COCs on the prevalence and severity of dysmenorrhoea and the absence of a randomised controlled trial confirming this in no way reduces the value of this information.. The article The effect of combined oral contraceptives and age on dysmenorrhoea: an epidemiological study ...
Hormonal contraception is known to cause subtle but widespread behavioral changes. Here, we investigated whether changes in cosmetic habits are associated with use of the hormonal contraceptive pill. We photographed a sample of women (N = 36) who self-reported whether or not they use the contraceptive pill, as well as their cosmetic habits. A separate sample of participants (N = 143) rated how much makeup these target women appeared to be wearing. We found that women not using the contraceptive pill (i.e., naturally cycling women) reported spending more time applying cosmetics for an outing than did women who use the contraceptive pill. We also found that the faces of these naturally cycling women were rated as wearing more cosmetics than the faces of the women using the contraceptive pill. Thus, we found clear associations between contraceptive pill use and makeup use. This provides evidence consistent with the possibility that cosmetic habits, and grooming behaviors more generally, are affected by
Yaz is birth control that comes in pill form, it contains a synthetic hormone called Drospirenone. Yaz is also sold under the brand names - Yasmin, Yasminelle, Beyaz, Ocella, Zarah, and Angeliq, all of these birth control pills are combination products of drospirenone with an estrogen such as ethinylestradiol.. Women taking or who have taken birth control pills that contain drospirenone have a sevenfold risk of developing blood clots compared to women who take birth control pills that contain levonorgestrel (a synthetic progestogen).. Even though Yasmin was the first birth control pill to contain drospirenone, when Yaz hit the U.S. market In 2006 it quickly became one of the most popular froms of birth control..

Question:. Given the information we now know about the relatively rare but real abortifacient effect of the birth control pill, do you believe it is a sin to use the pill for contraceptive purposes?. Response:. This question has, in recent times, become one of the most frequently asked of all the inquiries I receive. I must confess that, for some time, I have procrastinated in answering, at least in any public forum, this question. There are a couple of reasons for my hesitancy.. First, I did not feel qualified to be a definitive resource about this subject, since I have had no training or experience in the medical or pharmaceutical fields. Please understand, even now, as I tell you what I think about the use of the pill, that I may not use the exact terminology that a medical doctor would use. I answer in terms that I understand.. Second, I hesitated because there are two views that are poles apart in regard to this question, even among those who are recognized as leaders in the pro-life camp. ...

Yasmin and Yaz are oral contraceptives (birth control pills) manufactured for the prevention of pregnancy. Yasmin was approved by the FDA (Food and Drug Administration) in 2001, Yaz was approved by the FDA in 2006. Yaz and Yasmin prevent pregnancy by combining estrogen and a synthetic progestin known as drospirenone.. Drospirenone is a dangerous drug. According to the FDA birth control pills containing drospirenone may be associated with a significantly higher risk of blood clots or DVT (Deep Vein Thrombosis) than birth control pills that do not contain drospirenone.

Oral contraceptives (OCs) remain among the most effective reversible methods of birth control available today, providing almost 100% effectiveness with an impressively high margin of safety and other important health benefits. However, concerns have been raised about the role that the hormones in OCs might play in the pathogenesis of cervical cancer. Evidence shows that long-term use of OCs (five or more years) may be associated with an increased risk of cancer of the cervix. The mechanism of increased risk of cervical cancer in OCs users has long been debated, and remains uncertain. Our hypothesis is that scanty, thick, and highly viscous cervical mucus obtained in OCs users intimately involved in the pathogenesis of cervical cancer. Possibly, this architecture of cervical mucus may modulate and prolong the effect of carcinogenic agents, which have been carried by coitus and stored in posterior vaginal fornix, on squamocolumnar junction of cervix by not permitting them to be removed because of ...

Vermont Legislative Research Shop. Health Insurance Coverage for Contraceptives. For the last 38 years birth control pills have been available as a prescription drug for women. These oral contraceptives cost, on average, $25 per month (NCLS 1999). This equates to $300 a year that women spend on contraceptives, which contributes to women paying 68 percent more in out of pocket expenses for health care than men (Planned Parenthood 1999). While they are the most widely used prescription drug used by women aged 15 to 44, they are not covered by many health insurance companies that cover prescription drugs. Sixty-eight percent of HMOs and only 44% of indemnity plans cover contraceptive drugs (NCSL 1999). The percentage is much less for other contraceptive devices (diaphragms, IUD, Depo-Provera shots, Norplans implants). The Health Insurance Association of America estimates that the cost of the coverage of birth control is about $16 annually compared to birth without complications which costs between ...
Oral contraceptives (OCs) are one of the most widely used and effective methods of birth control available worldwide. They are one of the best-studied and safest medications on the market today, yet in most of North America and Western Europe a prescription is required to obtain them. This can be a barrier for some women seeking birth control, particularly those without easy access to a clinician.. To address this barrier, ANSIRH participates in the Oral Contraceptives (OCs) Over-the-Counter (OTC) Working Group, which leverages research and advocacy efforts to advance evidence-based policy with the aim of improving access to contraception and reducing disparities in reproductive health outcomes by making a low-cost OC product available OTC in the United States. The working group is currently focused on a progestin-only pill, as the first OTC OC product.. Convened by Ibis Reproductive Health, the OCs OTC Working Group is a coalition of reproductive health, justice, and rights organizations, ...
November 20, 2020 St Louis Park, MN The FDA has issued a new Draft Guidance for Industry Clinical Drug Interaction Studies With Combined Oral Contraceptives which can be found on the FDA website at: This document discusses the need for drug-drug interaction (DDI) studies with combined oral contraceptives (COCs) containing an estrogen and a progestin when used to prevent pregnancy. The FDA reports COCs are highly effective in preventing pregnancy when used correctly. Unfortunately, interactions between COCs and other drugs may increase pregnancy risk or compromise patient safety by changing estrogen or progestin metabolism. For example, this guidance states increased estrogen and/or progestin levels can increase the risk of blood clots in veins which is a rare but serious adverse event. Women of childbearing age often use COCs and other ...

The Collaborative Group on Hormonal Factors in Breast Cancer has brought together and reanalysed the worldwide epidemiological evidence on breast cancer risk and use of hormonal contraceptives. Original data from 54 studies, representing about 90% of the information available on the topic, were collected, checked and analysed centrally. The 54 studies were performed in 26 countries and include a total of 53,297 women with breast cancer and 100,239 women without breast cancer. The studies were varied in their design, setting and timing. Most information came from case-control studies with controls chosen from the general population; most women resided in Europe or North America and most cancers were diagnosed during the 1980s. Overall 41% of the women with breast cancer and 40% of the women without breast cancer had used oral contraceptives at some time; the median age at first use was 26 years, the median duration of use was 3 years, the median year of first use was 1968, the median time since first use
The Boston Collaborative Drug Surveillance Program on behalf of Johnson & Johnson conducted the study. The patch was studied in women aged 15-44. These recent findings support an earlier study that also said women in this group were at higher risk for VTE.. Ortho Evra is a prescription patch that releases the hormones ethinyl estradiol and norelgestromin through the skin into the blood stream. Because the hormones are processed by the body differently than hormones from birth control pills, women using the product will be exposed to about 60 percent more estrogen than if they were using typical birth control pills containing 35 micrograms of estrogen. Increased levels of estrogen may increase the risk of side effects, including VTE.. Women should discuss with their health care providers the possible increased risk of VTE with Ortho Evra, which is applied once a week, and balance this risk against the increased chance of pregnancy if women do not take their birth control pill daily.. ...
Claveaus 28-page Birth Control and Abortifacients begins with a detailed analysis of the various standard methods of contraception, noting their abortifacient action and harmful side effects on women. Claveau pays particular attention to the popular birth control pills that have been widely accepted, even by professedly pro-life women, as a means to reduce the sort of unwanted pregnancies that often end in abortion.. Birth control pills artificially flood a womans body with high levels of hormones in order to produce three main effects on her body: First, the hormones can suppress ovulation, thus preventing the formation of eggs. Second, the hormones can thicken the cervical mucus, thus preventing sperm from reaching the egg. Third, the hormones can alter the uterine lining, thus preventing the fertilized egg from implanting in the uterus that provides the newly formed zygote with the oxygen and nutrients he needs to live.. Early birth control pills contained high levels of progestin and ...
All contain an estrogen, ethinylestradiol or mestranol,[1][2] in varying amounts, and one of a number of different progestogens. (Regarding the estrogen, the inactive 3-methyl ether of ethinylestradiol, which must be metabolized by the liver into the active ethinylestradiol; 50 µg of mestranol is equivalent to only 35 µg of ethinylestradiol and should not be used when high-dose [50 µg ethinylestradiol] estrogen pills are needed; mestranol was the estrogen used in the first oral contraceptive, Enovid). They are usually taken for 21 days with then a seven-day gap during which a withdrawal bleed (often, but incorrectly, referred to as a menstrual period) occurs. These differ in the amount of estrogen given, and whether they are monophasic (the same dose of estrogen and progestogen during each of the 21 days) or multiphasic (varying doses). The introduction of extended-cycle monophasic pills (i.e. Seasonale) has shown that the withdrawal bleeding intervals can be decreased. ...
In December 1976, the federal FDA proposed mandatory patient package inserts accompany all pill prescriptions: The Food and Drug Administration will regard as misbranded and subject to regulatory action any oral contraceptive that is shipped in interstate commerce … after April 6, 1977 without labeling that is substantially the same as set forth in this notice. Thus, the FDA required pill manufacturers to tell physicians that the pill included a mode of action that every physician would understand from his medical training to be an early abortion: Combination oral contraceptives … Although the primary mechanism of action is inhibition of ovulation, alterations … in the endometrium (which reduce the likelihood of implantation) may also contribute to contraceptive effectiveness … progestin oral contraceptives are known to … exert a progestational effect on the endometrium, interfering with implantation, and, in some patients suppress ovulation.16.

This is the first nationally representative analysis of OC use by sociodemographic characteristics, cardiovascular risk factors, and medication formulation..

Women using a vaginal ring or skin patch for contraception are at around double the risk of a blood clot compared to those taking the Pill, the Daily Mail has reported. The news is based on a large Danish study that looked at contraceptive use in more than 1.5 million women. The study looked at how different hormone-based methods such as implants, the patch and the pill related to the risk of blood clots. Between 2001 and 2010 researchers recorded a total of 3,434 blood clots, also known as venous thromboembolisms or VTE. The background rate of VTE among women not using hormonal contraception was 2.1 per 10,000 woman-years (for example, 2.1 would occur if 1,000 women were followed for 10 years). The highest rate of VTE was among women who used the contraceptive patch, with 9.7 per 10,000 woman-years. Women using a common oral contraceptive pill experienced a rate of 6.2 per 10,000 woman-years.. Despite what some news coverage might suggest, hormonal contraceptives containing oestrogen ( the ...
Contraception may be less effective in overweight or obese women, according to an article in the Boston Globe. However, more studies are necessary to confirm this suspicion.. Many studies of contraceptive efficacy have excluded clinical trials on overweight or obese women, according to an article on The doctors also concluded that the pill, the patch and contraceptive implants yield a higher failure rate in obese women.. The study also noted that even if the risk of contraceptive failure is increased, the effectiveness probably remains relatively high.. Dr. Alan Calhoun, the medical director of University Health Services at the University of Massachusetts, shares the same sentiment.. Birth control pills are still very effective for women who are overweight, Calhoun said.. Calhoun recommends oral contraceptives [pills] and intrauterine devices [IUDs], which are small, plastic, t-shaped devices that are inserted into the uterus.. Calhoun also said that pills are the most commonly ...
Review question. The combined oral contraceptive pill (COCP) is commonly used to treat pain associated with endometriosis but how well it works is unclear.. Background. Endometriosis is a common womens healthcare condition where the endometrium (lining of the womb) grows at sites outside the womb, such as the ovaries (which produce eggs). Endometriosis is commonly found in women with painful periods, pain with sexual intercourse, pelvic pain and infertility (difficulty in having a baby). Hormonal treatments, including COCPs and medicines called gonadotrophin-releasing hormone analogues (for example, goserelin) are used to relieve the pain symptoms associated with endometriosis. However, many of the hormonal treatments have side effects which limit their acceptability and duration of use.. Study characteristics. Cochrane authors searched for clinical studies on 19 October 2017. We found five trials, including 612 women, that met the inclusion criteria. The studies took place in Egypt, the US, ...

I am a 32 years old woman having |b|polycystic ovaries syndrome (PCOS)|/b| for the last several years. The doctor prescribed me Janya Pills for 6 months. I got my periods regularly during that time. After that I did not take the pills for 2 months and still got the periods on time. But last month I never got my periods so I consulted the doctor again. She gave me Deviry for 7 days, after which I will get my periods within 5 days and once I get my period I have been asked to take Rasmin from the day 3 of my menstruation. I am getting married next month and since I will be going out for the honeymoon, the doctor has asked me to continue taking Rasmin for the second course once I finish the first course of 21 pills. Is it safe to be on contraceptive pills for such a long time? I have put on a lot of weight within the last 3-4 years. Is Rasmin safe? Would I be able to conceive? Please advise.
Lest you think its all about abortion, just take a look at how the Bush Administration has been quietly fighting womens access to birth control..

  • The average length of time for which women in the ovarian cancer group had used oral contraceptives was 4.4 years, compared with 5.0 years in the control group. (
  • In high income countries, using oral contraceptives for 10 years was linked to reduced rate of ovarian cancer before the age of 75 from 12 to 8 per 1,000 women. (
  • Every 5,000 woman-years of oral contraceptive use appears to prevent 2 cases of ovarian cancer and one death before the age of 75. (
  • Use of oral contraceptives confers long-term protection against ovarian cancer. (
  • As for the link between oral contraceptives and ovarian cancer, today's collaborative analysis brings unequivocal good news. (
  • Ovarian cancer and oral contraceptives: collaborative reanalysis of data from 45 epidemiological studies including 23,257 women with ovarian cancer and 87,303 controls. (
  • They correlated global data on age-standardized rates of prostate cancer and related deaths in 2007 from the International Agency for Research on Cancer with information on the percentage of women using Ochs and other contraceptive methods from the United Nations World Contraceptive Use 2007 report, analyzing the data by country and continent. (
  • When compared with women who hadn't used oral contraceptives, those who had used them for 10 years or more had a 34 percent reduced risk for endometrial and a 40 percent risk reduction for ovarian cancer. (
  • Importantly, contraceptive use did not seem to affect the risk for developing other cancers including postmenopausal colorectal or breast cancer. (
  • Most up-to-date information on oral contraceptives (OCs) and breast cancer risk comes from a collaborative re-analysis of individual data on 53297 cases and 100239 controls. (
  • Oral Contraceptive Use and Risk of Breast Carcinoma In Situ", which appeared in a recent issue of Cancer Causes and Control, compared 567 women newly diagnosed with in situ breast cancer in Los Angeles County with 614 unaffected women who served as control subjects. (
  • They found oral contraceptive use was not associated with increased risk of breast cancer. (
  • Although many studies have examined the impact of oral contraceptives on risk of invasive breast cancer, very few have assessed whether they are associated with risk of in situ breast cancer," said Leslie Bernstein, professor of preventive medicine and co-author of the study. (
  • Because the contraceptives contain estrogen, which can affect breast cell growth and development, "researchers are very interested in a possible link between oral contraceptive use and breast cancer risk," said Bernstein. (

  • The research tells us that there is no increased risk of cancer from using oral contraceptives. (
  • Oral contraceptive use is associated with a reduced risk for ovarian cancer for BRCA mutation carriers, according to a study published in the July issue of the American Journal of Obstetrics & Gynecology . (
  • Lieske H. Schrijver, from the Netherlands Cancer Institute in Amsterdam, and colleagues examined the correlation of various characteristics of oral contraceptive use and the risk for ovarian cancer among 3,989 BRCA1 and 2,445 BRCA2 mutation carriers. (
  • The researchers found that mutation carriers who were diagnosed with ovarian cancer had less frequent use of oral contraceptives (ever use: 58.6 percent for BRCA1 and 53.5 percent for BRCA2 ) compared with unaffected carriers (88.9 and 80.7 percent, respectively). (
  • In univariate analyses, a longer duration of oral contraceptive use and more recent use were both associated with a reduction in the risk for ovarian cancer for BRCA1 carriers. (
  • Prior studies have described a reduced risk of developing ovarian cancer with the use of oral contraceptives. (
  • In this context, we decided to examine if oral contraceptive use prior to a diagnosis of ovarian cancer is associated with better overall and progression-free survival. (
  • Continuous ovulation is thought to predispose to ovarian epithelial cell DNA damage, which in turn gives rise to carcinogenesis, thus providing mechanistic plausibility to how cessation of ovulation from oral contraceptives might lead to lower cancer risk [ 3 ]. (
  • The many decades of follow up required to capture a small number of cancer cases, the enormous funding necessary to conduct prevention trials of sizable complexity, and the fact that oral contraceptives can also confer negative effects, such as an increased risk of thrombophlebitis and breast cancer, all lessen enthusiasm for the conduct of such prevention trials. (
  • In contrast to these data on ovarian cancer prevention, few studies have specifically sought to assess whether oral contraceptives prior to an ovarian cancer diagnosis is associated with better outcomes after contracting this malignancy. (
  • This possibility builds on previous data on the purported role of oral contraceptives in preventing ovarian cancer. (
  • 2. Prior oral contraceptive use associated with better outcome for ovarian cancer patients [press release]. (
  • In his editorial in the current New England Journal of Medicine David Hunter , Richard Doll Professor of Epidemiology and Medicine, reviews the evidence on the association between the use of oral contraceptives and risk of breast cancer. (
  • He concludes that these data suggest that the search for an oral contraceptive that does not elevate the risk of breast cancer needs to continue and that the current study exemplifies the opportunities to use population-wide "big data" approaches to evaluate important issues at a relatively low cost. (
  • A pooled analysis of 10 case-control studies of melanoma and oral contraceptive use This is available free full text from the British Journal of Cancer. (
  • This risk, however, drops following the cessation of contraceptive use so that, at ten years post-use, there is no significant increase in the risk of developing breast cancer. (
  • Use of oral contraceptives at an older age has also been linked to an increase in the number of breast cancer cases diagnosed. (
  • The investigators used multivariate and univariate analyses to assess the effect of oral contraceptives on PFS and overall survival (OS). (
  • This forces women to compromise between what they can afford and the contraceptive effectiveness that they need. (
  • During the first 7 days, the researchers found the majority of the women, 85% on oral contraceptives experienced acute mountain sickness compared with 51% of the remaining workers ( P = .04). (
  • Oral contraceptives come in packets of 21, 28, or 91 tablets to take by mouth once a day, every day or almost every day of a regular cycle. (
  • You will probably experience withdrawal bleeding similar to a menstrual period while you are taking the inactive tablets or the low dose estrogen tablets or during the week that you do not take your oral contraceptive. (
  • BEXTRA Tablets for oral administration contain either 10 mg or 20 mg of valdecoxib. (
  • With that being said, fluconazole would be the best oral medication in treating this type of acne. (
  • Further studies are needed to investigate whether oral contraceptive-induced impairments in emotion recognition depend on the type, duration or timing of use. (
  • The American Academy of Periodontology concedes, "Some drugs, such as oral contraceptives, antidepressants, and certain heart medicines, can affect your oral health. (
  • According to the firms, "very few" treatments are specifically indicated for the treatment of endometriosis, and associated pain is often managed with medicines such as oral contraceptives, nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), opioids and hormonal therapies, as well as surgery in the most extreme cases. (
  • Pour savoir si les agents de soins de santé à Tabriz fournissaient des informations et des conseils adaptés sur l'utilisation des pilules contraceptives, la présente étude a été planifiée pour examiner le niveau de connaissances, les attitudes et les pratiques des personnes qui dispensent des pilules contraceptives. (
  • Un échantillon de 150 agents de soins de santé dans des maisons de santé et de 150 pharmaciens en milieu hospitalier ou communautaire ont répondu au questionnaire évaluant leurs connaissances sur l'utilisation correcte des pilules contraceptives, les effets secondaires, les contre-indications, les signes de danger/symptômes et les avantages non-contraceptifs, mais aussi sur l'offre ou non de conseils aux patientes en la matière.
