Are Birth Control Pills Really That Dangerous?

2 posts in this topic

I've read that bc can negatively affect cortisol, insulin, hair growth, and brain chemistry. Are these affects really that dangerous? Or are they relatively insignificant and harmless? I was taking yasmin for 4 years but stopped this year because of all these studies that said how horrible the pill can mess you up. Please, any information will help with what you know about the side effects of the pill.

It's not the greatest thing for you, but if you don't have contraindications and side effects, it's pretty safe. i wouldn't stop it if I was on it and didn't have problems. I can't go on the BCP, though, because I have contraindications.

I have heard yasmin is more risky than others. You should take a different one that's good for acne. Don't ask me which ones because I don't know. There's plenty of topics on it on this board though.


Please only PM me if it's something that cannot be talked about on the thread or is highly personal. This way, everyone benefits.
