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.
