The birth control pill is one of the most prescribed and self-medication in the world and not just for pregnancy prevention.
Birth control pills are also prescribed to control acne and other fertility issues such as endometriosis, PCOS, ovarian cysts, pain associated with fertility issues, PMS, and irregular menstrual cycles, which sounds good.
But while freely taken by most women at some point in their life, it may not be good for long-term fertility.
The followings are some of the ways the birth control pill impacts your fertility long term;
- Menstrual Cycle Disruption.
- Disrupted Ovulation.
- Hormonal Imbalance.
- Cervical Mucus Changes.
- Changes in the Uterine Lining.
Many women begin taking the pill at a very young age and don’t stop until they want to begin trying to conceive. The Pill doesn’t cause infertility, but impacts long-term fertility by “silencing a woman’s biological clock for so long that, in some cases, they forget it’s ticking away”. In other cases, women ignore or forget they are dealing with a fertility issue because the symptoms have gone away.
The bottom line is this, women trying to control the symptoms of a fertility issue by taking the Pill are not addressing the underlying imbalance that is fueling, or contributing to the fertility issue. Instead, they are using a synthetic medication to control the symptoms of the problem while simultaneously allowing the body to defy nature.
These things increase your chances of getting pregnant.
