How Well Do You Know Your Birth Control’s Side Effects?

Posted by on Jun 4, 2015 in Birth Control Pills

Recent technological advancements have drastically changed the way human beings live on this planet. In fact, civilization has changed more in the last fifty years than it has in the entirety of human history – which is a good 50 million years in, and that tells a lot about the changes that the human race has both brought on and has gone through.

Medicine, for one thing, has eliminated diseases that would have once decimated entire populations. Situations such as the Black Plague are not quite possible in this day and age thanks to the availability of modern medicine and hygienic practices. These advancements have allowed for drastic lifestyle changes – and some of these advancements have been targeted towards the benefit of women. Birth control pills have since then been developed and have been made available for women for either personal or medical reasons. Such therapy for these hormones has allowed for responsible planned parenting and has prevented instances of unwanted pregnancies.

However, such drugs that can alter so much of a woman’s biology need to be sufficiently tested before they are allowed to be distributed for mass consumption. One tiny mistake can cause health complications to thousands of women who then use this defective drug – sometimes, even death. These circumstances are, unfortunately, not just hypothetical; they are very, very real. According to the website of Williams Kherkher, there have been women who have been subjected to potentially fatal blood clots after consumption of birth control pills Yaz, Yasmin, or any such medicine that it has then otherwise been called as.

The FDA had only recently voted in 2011 for additional warnings to be printed on the label of these drugs, despite their having been on the market since 2001. Many women, as well as their families, have since then been subjected to the negative effects of these drugs without having been warned beforehand. This accounts for some legal action and should this situation be personally familiar to you by experience, it is recommended that professional help is sought.
