Women living with regular sex life, but not currently taking care of their maternity, have several options to protect themselves from getting pregnant. Over the past decade, women have mostly relied on hormonal contraceptives, but their number has fallen in recent years. What's behind this fall? And which are the risks of taking hormonal pills?
The fall of women they are protects against conception by hormonal contraception, then gynecologist MUDr. Katerina Klimova of the Ginklin Gynecology Clinic: "In 2008 there was a downtrend in the reduction in the use of hormone contraception, which is still in progress." The number of pill users fell by about a third, only a small part of this fall replaced the use of intrauterine bodies, "says Doctor.
"By reducing the number of users, unfortunately, it stopped favorably trend of reduction of artificial ending of pregnancy, which now holds about 20,000 a year. This, in my opinion, is a shame, because unplanned pregnancies represent emotional and physical stress for women and, ultimately, but not less important, unnecessary costs of the health care system, "said a gynecologist.
Women are haunting vascular problems as well as extra pounds
Why are contraceptives decreasing? The reasons may be many. The causes of the reduction in the use of hormonal contraceptives are directed by doctors within the educational project Falsified forum. Their research has shown that women, in the context of hormonal pills, are afraid of weight gain and risk of thromboembolic disease.
Deciding women, of course, also reflects the overall mood in society. Many people, in a spirit of sustainability, are trying to gradually return to nature, which is logical does not record the use of chemical preparations. Their role in forming the relationship to hormonal contraception is played by the media. Although some of them are addressed fairly and objectively about pills, others recycle half-truths and myths that can discourage potential enthusiasts or even scare them unnecessarily.
Hormonal contraception is not for everyone
It should be noted that combined hormonal contraceptives that contain estrogen and progestin in fact Not suitable for every woman. Pills are a convenient and convenient solution for sexually active women who are healthy, and therefore do not suffer from illness or condition, whether they are currently or wanton, who are excluded from the use of hormonal contraceptives.
"Between possible contraindications to hormonal contraceptives high blood pressure, deep vein thrombosis, pulmonary embolism, heart disease including congenital developmental disorders, increased blood fat, migraine, breast cancer, abnormal liver tests, gallstones, complications with diabetes, blood loss, antiphospholipid syndrome, the presence of two more risk factors at the same time, such as smoking along with overweight and blood pressure fluctuations, or in combination with family overload, "says Dr. Klima risk factors.
Pills are not suitable for women who are breastfeeding or less than three weeks after delivery. Risk can also be for women who smoke 15 or more cigarettes a day and have more than 35 years of life. The use of hormonal contraceptive agents is eliminated also due to the presence of a genetic dispensing agent for increasing blood coagulation. They are most famous Layden mutation, an inherited blood-pressure disorder that estimates it suffers from one-tenth of the Czech population.
Prevention and a responsible doctor are important
A responsible gynecologist should tell the patient about the benefits of taking hormonal contraceptive agents, but also to learn what pills carry risks and traps. Of course, it is also necessary to check that the affected person suffers from any illness that is excluded from the pill. If a patient has a potentially dangerous disease in the patient's family, the presence of the patient should be confirmed or excluded by appropriate tests.
Patients should therefore find a doctor they can trust and rely on their expertise and judgment. Considering the nature of gynecological examinations, it is logical that women are not only a necessary gynecologist or gynecologist, but Their sympathy also plays their role. If examinations take place in a pleasant ambience, women are less well-reasoned because they go to gynecology. Examinations should be conducted at least once a year, unless the doctor decides otherwise.
What women, according to dr. Klimova, are most often chosen by a gynecologist? "Works best undoubtedly a recommendation. References from someone you know are helpful when deciding. And most of our new clients come from the personal experience of their friends or acquaintances, "the gynecologist concluded.
