A large proportion of German women rely on the antibapyme for their prevention. However, these drugs are associated with health risks. According to a recent survey, every tenth woman suffers from depression as a side effect of pill, hormone spiral &Co.
Antibody with side effects
Fast, safe and comfortable: Many women are still using hormonal methods of contraception. No wonder the antibapypy ensures proper protection and sexual freedom when taken and used correctly. However, the medication is associated with unpleasant side effects. Among other things, modern antibiotics present a high risk of thrombosis. In addition, researchers reported that the pill increases the risk of brain tumors. And according to Swedish scientists, the use of such remedies affects the well-being of women. But there are still more threats: According to a recent survey, hormonal contraception is often associated with depression.
It is well known that antibiotics are not a harmless sweet, but a drug with serious side effects. However, many women still consider it a preferred antagonist.
According to a survey conducted by the SBK occupational health insurance company, 39% of the 18-24-year-olds and 38% of the 25-34-year-olds take the antibapypy. Among the 35-45-year-olds, there are still 18 percent, nine percent among respondents aged between 45 and 54.
As the health insurance company reported in a report, more than one-third of the respondents( 43 percent) said they had used the pill before, but did not consider it as a preventative.
The hormone spiral, on the other hand, is less popular: only three percent currently use it to prevent it.
For every tenth woman, the pill leads to depression
That hormonal methods of prevention always involve risks, is nothing new. Nevertheless, the latest figures are alarming: every tenth woman states that she has suffered or suffered from depression due to depression.
Almost a third of 18 to 24-year-olds( 30 per cent) say they have had this side-effect."This is a disquieting result," said Dr. Alexander Klostermann, gynecologist at SBK Health Care.
"Depression is a serious mental illness that should be severely burdened and treated".
Common side effects include weight gain( 28 percent) and headache / migraine( 17 percent), sexual unpleasure( nine percent).
Particularly younger women between 18 and 24 years of age are more likely to experience side effects( 65%).Across all age groups, however, 51 per cent of respondents said they had not seen any side effects.
Hormonal Contraception? No thanks!
The survey shows that many women do without hormonal methods of prevention or hormone-free alternatives are open.
Thus, 15% of all respondents said they have never taken the antibacterial system and will not consider it as a preventive method in the future.
As an alternative to hormonal contraception, condoms are very popular with the participants of all ages( 48 per cent).The copper spiral is an option especially for the age groups 18-24( 26 per cent) and 25-34( 20 per cent).
The calendar method, which is calculated using the cycle length, is also worth considering for eleven percent of women.
For women between 18 and 34 years, however, other hormonal contraception methods, such as a pill with a different composition, would also be considered as a side effect( 41 percent).
Overall, 63 percent of all women would consider non-hormonal methods of contraception as an alternative.(ad)
