Teens' contraceptives


Birth control pills carry surprising non-contraceptive benefits for some women. CNN's Judy Fortin reports.

 

For some young women, their monthly period is more than just a curse, it’s a real nightmare.

When period cramps are incapacitating, so they prevent you from going to work, they prevent you from going to school, they require you to take medications.

One way to lessen the pain is to give these patients birth control pills. The reason why it works is pretty simple.

In any situation, that pill has the ability to decrease the blood flow that’s associated with your menstrual period, and decreasing that helps to decrease the cramps associated.

But some parents worry that by putting their daughters on the pills so early, they expose them to risks later on in life.

Luckily, there are no risks involved with long-term usage of the pill, and in fact your non-contraceptive benefits increase, the longer that you are on the pill. After even five years of being on the birth control pill, your risk of ovarian cancer drops by 80%, your lifetime risk of uterine cancer drops by 50%, and possibly some other protective effects for other types of cancers.

But there are some risk factors that can make this pill not the right choice.

Well, I think one of the things to be sure of is your own family history. So if you have a strong family history of cardiac disease, of blood clots, then it’s important no matter what medication your teenage decides to go on, it’s important to make sure that you are aware of that and you let her doctor be aware of that.

Make sure you discuss all this with your doctor before deciding if popping a pill might make your monthly pain go away.

避孕药除了避孕之外,还在其他方面不可思议的使女子们受益。CNN记者Judy Fortin报道。

对一些年轻女孩来说,每个月的例假不只是诅咒,简直就是噩梦。

腹部绞痛让你不能去上班,不能去上学,必须吃药才能减轻疼痛。

其中一个减轻疼痛的方法就是给病人吃一些避孕药。原因很简单。

在任何情况下,避孕药都可以减轻经期血流量,自然而然也就减轻了绞痛。

但是有些父母担心,过早的让女儿服用避孕药会给他们日后的生活带来风险。

幸运的是,长期服用避孕药不会有什么风险。实际上,你服用避孕药的时间越长,你在飞避孕方面受益越多。服用避孕药五年以后,患卵巢癌的几率减少80%,尿道癌的几率减少50%,可能对其他类型的癌症也有预防作用。

但是也有一些危险因素使得避孕药并不是正确选择。

我认为其中一点需要确认的是你的家庭患病史。如果你们有严重的家族式心脏病或者血瘀,无论你青春期的女儿服用什么药你都必须谨慎,都必须让医生指导。

在决定食用避孕药止痛经之前,确保和医生好好沟通。
