Side Effects of Birth Control Pills

For a woman, a normal and healthy fertility cycle should include:

  • eggs emitting estrogen (a hormone)
  • cervical fluid changes
  • uterine lining tissues constructing in perparation for pregnancy
  • ovulation

This process is interrupted by the standard birth control pill, which include SYNTHETIC hormones such as progestin and estrogen. In fact, sometimes the estrogen put into birth control pills is actually sourced from horse urine, called Premarin. If you use these synthetic hormones, normal fertility cycles will no longer occur for you, becase natural fertility cycles are connected with the Moon.

The normal hypothalamus-pituitary- ovarian hormonal axis is over-ridden by birth control pills in order to prevent ovulation from occurring. It is not natural for women to miss ovulation unless she is actually pregnant. Adjusting the hormones and natural funtions of the reproduction system leaves her in a situation where she is prone to side effects from the pill such as blood clots, strokes, cancers, and even infertility. Bith control has not been researched in depth to see the long-term affects of taking these pills.

Stop taking the pill for a few months before you plan to get pregnant, it is much better to use natural family planning as a means of birth control. Ending the use of birth control pills will allow your body to recover, and restore the lost nutrients.

How Cancer and Birth Control Pills Are Related

Certain pharmaceutical hormones have been linked to cancer, especially synthetic estrogen (which is found in birth control pills). Dr. Samuel Epstein, who is a world leader in cancer prevention warned us that “the largest unregulated human trial that’s ever been conducted” is the use of the borth control pill.

Hormonal contraceptives have been classified by The World Health Organization’s International Agency for Research on Cancer as carcinogenic to humans.

Sam Apstein, MD wrote in The Breast Cancer Prevention Program: “more than 20 well-controlled studies have demonstrated the clear risk of premenopausal breast cancer with the use of oral contraceptives. These estimates indicate that a young woman who uses oral contraceptives has up to ten times the risk for developing breast cancer as does a non-user, particularly if she uses the Pill during her teens or early twenties; if she uses the Pill for two years or more; if she uses the Pill before her first full-term pregnancy; if she has a family history of breast cancer.” So, a woman’s breast cancer risk is increased tenfold if she takes the Pill for two years before the ages of 25 and before she’s had a pregnancy to term.
