Women without menstruation?
Contraceptive pill that suppresses menstruation
No much further than last week the Lybrel pill was approved in the
United States. Its continuous hormone supply makes menstruation
disappear (it is taken the 365 days of the year).
Those of us who are in daily contact with gynecological clinic know
how difficult it is for women to recover a normal menstruation or get
pregnant after having taken hormonal contraceptives for a long time.
It is difficult to believe in an immediate recovery of menstruation (one
of the argumentations of the pharmacological industry) and ovulation
after having abolished them chemically.
In general, women are not informed about the side effects the use of
high doses of estrogens may cause. This dose is much higher if the aim
is to completely abolish the menstrual period. A hyperestrogenic state
can lead to complications such as breast cancer, uterine cancer,
obesity, an increase of autoimmune illnesses, thrombosis, a diminution
or lack of libido leading to a lack of sexual appetite.
Abolishing the cycle aggressively ignoring its consequences in the
long term can be dangerous. As dangerous as it was, some time ago, the
abusive consumption of oral contraceptive methods which nowadays
proves its incidence in the increase of women suffering from cancer in
first world societies.
