Contraception

Is the pill safe?

Links between the contraceptive pill and the user's health has been a matter of controversy for decades. In its early days the contraceptive pill was known to cause minor irritation like nausea and weight gain. And even more serious complications like blood pressure, heart attacks and breast cancer. This was due to higher proportions of steroids: estrogen and progesterone. Today, the proportion of steroids has been decreased thereby reducing the many side effects associated with contraceptive pills.

A recent medical breakthrough has produced a non-steroidal drug; centchroman. It is a once-a-week, contraceptive pill. Absolutely safe and convenient as well.

It has a unique mode of action. It makes the cervical mucus thick which hinders penetration of sperms. Also, it slightly accelerates the transport of the fertilized ovum to the uterine cavity and suppresses the development of the uterine wall, in which the fertilized ovum gets implanted and develops. As a result, terrified ovum arrives in the uterine cavity to find a unreceptive host and gets expelled from the body.

All contraceptive pills are effective only if taken in compliance. Ask your doctor about it.
