Is it possible to get pregnant by taking birth control pills?

by admin

The contraceptive pill is one of the most common contraceptive methods. However, its effectiveness is not 100% and therefore, any woman is at risk of becoming pregnant, even taking the medication regularly. In addition, some factors may contribute to changing the efficacy of the pill, raising the risk of gestation.

Among the most common risks are:

the use of antibiotics

stop taking the pill at the correct intervals

presenting with diarrhea or vomiting after taking the pill

change it by another contraceptive method and do not use a condom in the first few weeks.

Continuous, daily and at the same time is essential, after all the body must receive the daily dose of the hormone correctly so that its effectiveness is more guaranteed. It is these hormonal doses that will prevent pregnancy , because they act by inhibiting ovulation and, thus, preventing fertilization. If more than 12 hours are missed, it is important to note that contraceptive protection will be reduced in this cycle. As you approach the end of the chart, the risk of contraceptive failure is increasing. Some antibiotics may cut the effect of the contraceptive pill , so it is important to talk to your doctor about these reactions. Antiallergics may also interfere with the contraceptive protection offered by the pills. Another issue concerns episodes of vomiting or diarrhea that can also disrupt the efficacy of the pill. In a picture of diarrhea, the intestine fails to absorb certain nutrients, including the compound hormones in the pill, increasing the inefficacy of the drug. And the same happens if there is vomiting, because the stomach can not absorb substances that help prevent the conception of a baby. In these two situations, you need to take the pill again.

What if I get pregnant taking the pill?

If any occurrence has been sufficient to interfere with the efficacy of the drug and the patient is pregnant, the fact that she is taking the pill is no reason to show off. Although the pill causes a hormonal change necessary for the body to stop ovulation, the pills do not contain a high load of hormones that could impair pregnancy. The low amount of hormone present in the pill should not harm the developing fetus, after all in a few days they will be replaced by the hormones of pregnancy . It is important to note that the contraceptive pill must be taken under medical prescription. Currently, there are low estrogen dosage options that are also very effective as long as they are administered correctly. Contraceptive efficacy does not depend on the dose of estrogen, but on the progesterone contained in the pill. The pill is not only indicated to prevent unwanted pregnancies but can help regulate the menstrual cycle, decrease the flow and occurrence of cramps, and even protect against some types of cancers such as ovary and endometrium.

Pill does not harm fertility and may still prevent health problems

When the contraceptive pill was launched in the 1960s, it changed the world. Even today, it changes the life of the woman, who can plan the arrival of a child and avoid an unwanted pregnancy. If used correctly, all pills have the same efficacy and the failure rate is less than 1% - but in case of forgetfulness, medication delay and use of other drugs that may interfere with contraceptive action, this rate may increase , as explained by the gynecologist Paulo Margarido No BemEstar this Thursday (30). In relation to fertility, many people believe that continued use of the medication impairs pregnancy in the future. However, as explained by the gynecologist José Bento , this is because the woman usually starts taking the pill at age 18, when fertility is at its peak, and at age 35, when the eggs are already older. Therefore, the difficulty to get pregnant is not the fault of the contraceptive, but of the age. In addition, there is no study that proves that the body needs a break from using the pill - using it continuously can, in addition to avoiding an unwanted pregnancy, prevent ovarian cysts and cancer, endometriosis, polyps and endometrial cancer, fibroids in the uterus, cramps, headache, PMS and even pimples. However, it does not protect a woman from sexually transmitted diseases, so the use of condoms in sexual intercourse is always recommended.

It is important to know that there are dozens of different pills and therefore it is important to take it always with the advice of a gynecologist, who will prescribe the best dosage, the best hormone and still evaluate if there are contraindications in the case of each patient. The most used are the combined estrogen and progesterone because they are the ones that give the least side effects and those that better control the menstrual cycle, as the report of Marina Araújo showed (see video above) .

However, there are restrictions. According to gynecologist João Paulo Mancusi, a patient who is breastfeeding, for example, can not use the combined pill because estrogen can pass through the milk, that is, she should use only the progesterone pill. The same goes for older women, or with risk factors such as obesity, smoking, physical inactivity and also diabetes. There is also the risk of side effects, as with any medicine. The most common are hair loss, acne, nausea, cellulite, breast and hip augmentation, swelling and fluid retention, loss of libido and the most troubling, which is thrombosis. In this latter situation, the doctor should investigate whether the patient has first-degree relatives in the family who had the disease and, if necessary, avoid the estrogen pill. In the case of loss of libido, the gynecologist José Bento explained that it is not every woman who has this, since the libido is multifactorial, that is, the emotional component influences a lot. In the case of fluid retention, some patients feel they have gained weight because of contraception, but it is the impression caused by swelling.

In any case, she may also gain weight because of the changes in appetite and the desire to eat sweet, for example. In some cases, women often feel more discomfort when they change medicine. Reporter Michelle Barros heard testimony from several 40-year-old women who experienced nausea, dizziness, and also a headache when switching pills - so many of them dropped out of this method and put the IUD on .
