It is already well-known that hormonal birth control pills or contraceptives are an effective way to avoid unwanted pregnancies, but did you know that there are other benefits of using birth control pills other than preventing pregnancy? This is more important for women rather than men, and research has shown that there is something more than meets the eye when it comes to the use of contraceptives.
Kung hindi ka pa sigurado sa paggamit ng mga contraceptive, importanteng malaman na mayroon pang ibang benepisyo na pwede itong mabigay sayo na makakapag-dulot ng ginhawa sa mga iba pang problema na nararanasan ng mga kababaihan.
It regulates menstrual cycles and alleviates common menstrual complications
One of the biggest benefits that women can seek to gain by using hormonal birth control pills is the regulation of menstrual cycles. It helps establish a consistent and otherwise ‘regular’ menstrual period which can be convenient. Also, hormonal fluctuations commonly happen throughout a woman’s menstrual cycle and this causes a number of issues that include irregular or heavy bleeding, iron deficiency anemia, premenstrual syndrome (PMS), and even menstrual cramps (dysmenorrhea). Birth control pills have been observed to alleviate some of these conditions.
Kapag ang isang babae ay gumamit ng hormonal birth control pill, hindi lang mapipigilan ang pagbubuntis, kundi pati narin ang iba’t iba pang mga komplikasyon na bunga ng iregular na regla. Kung ikaw o ang mga mahal mo sa buhay ay apektado nito, maaring tignan ang birth control bilang posibleng lunas.
It can protect you against certain conditions, diseases, and illnesses
Aside from menstrual complications, taking birth control pills also helps fight other conditions and potential long-term diseases that women are prone to. This includes uterine cancer, ovarian cysts, endometriosis, and osteoporosis. However, don’t jump to the conclusion that this will automatically make you immune to those diseases. This is simply another precautionary method you can use to help.
Maliban sa mga nasabing malulubhang mga kondisyon, makakatulong din ang birth control pills sa pagpigil sa tagihawat, at sa pagbawas ng pagtubo ng buhok sa katawan. Ang mga ito ay maaring sanhi sa pagbabago ng hormones sa ating katawan kaya’t sila ay maari ring maiisaayos gamit ang contraceptives. Hindi kagulat-gulat na maraming mga beauty experts at dermatologists ang nagsasabi na ang pag inom ng birth control pills ay nakakatulong sa pagpapaganda ng kutis at balat.
Importanteng malaman na ang birth control pills ay maaring gamitin bilang solusyon sa mga problemang nasabi maliban sa pagpigil ng pagbubuntis. Kung ikaw ay hindi naman sexually active, maari pa ring gumamit ng birth control pills upang mapaginhawa ang iyong buhay.
However, it is still important to remember that birth control is meant to be taken and administered in cycles. This means you can’t just take it once and expect to gain the positive effects it can bring. Aside from that, not all birth control pills work in the same way. Ensuring its effectiveness will require consistency and the right information regarding its use. If you are interested in securing government-approved hormonal birth control pills, consult your physician.
