Side Effects Of Birth Control Pills To Treat Menstrual Disorders?
Good afternoon. I want to ask. How many months has been my irregular menstrual cycle. During the 3x period I have my period every 2 months. And the last 2 months, last month I menstruated for 12 days. And this month until I ask this I have menstruated for 18 days. After I consulted with the doctor, the doctor said that I was experiencing hormone disorders that were not stable. And I was given birth control pills. What I want to ask, is the danger if we are not married we take birth control pills? I heard from people that the uterus is still in normal condition, unfortunately, if given a birth control pill, it is afraid that the uterus will become dry. So, do you think I drink or not? thanks.
Hello Jessica, Thank you for the question.
Menstrual cycle is influenced by the work of reproductive hormones in the body. Menstrual disorders can occur if a woman experiences a reproductive hormone imbalance but this condition can also be caused by certain medical conditions. If you have been examined by a doctor and found no disturbance in your reproductive organs, then the cause is indeed a hormonal imbalance. In general, this hormonal imbalance will be handled by the use of birth control pills. Birth control pills are pills that contain synthetic reproductive hormones that can regulate hormones in the body so that the menstrual cycle can be more regular.
Actually there is no term uterine dry in the medical world. Maybe what is meant by dry uterus is amenorrhea, which is a condition when a woman does not get menstruation. Birth control pills do not cause amenorrhea, it is usually the use of injectable birth control that can cause amenorrhea. Thus, you do not need to worry about taking birth control pills even if you are not married. The use of birth control pills is not only intended for married women. If you are still unsure, you can consult with a specialist obstetrician and other obstetricians to ask for a second opinion.
In addition, you are also encouraged to make the following recommendations:
get enough rest, avoid excessive physical activity
avoid strict diets, multiply the consumption of nutritious foods
lose weight if you have excess weight
manage stress well
