It is common to go to the gynecologist and get away with recommendation of a birth control pill - although there are many other ways to prevent pregnancy. In recent years, the pill is no longer seen only as a contraceptive method. He became the first choice of doctors to treat acne, bloating, PMS and other problems.
Only the professionals, most are forgetting important parts of the service: listening and conversation! Many professionals do not even ask whether the patient smokes, even though studies show that the combination pill and cigarette increase by eight times the risk of cardiovascular accident (CVA). This is not a joke. The blood of smokers become more prone to clot formation and nicotine stiffens the arteries supplying the brain. Therefore, women who smoke should not take pílula.E How many know that?
While gynecologists prescribe contraceptives to women who have never damage caused by the pill, neurologists deal with the consequences of careless prescription. Tragedies are left for them. One of our flowers started to make use of the contraceptive pill, prescribed by a gynecologist to treat cramps. Initially felt headaches. He began to carry paracetamol purse. In the following months, he sought other doctors. He heard that the pain was caused by sinusitis, allergic attack, migraine, anxiety ... but the problem was much more serious. There 60 days, she suffered a stroke that caused a stroke. It was saved by little. If the answer more delayed 15 minutes today could be in a coma or worse ...
Our Flower does not smoke, it is not diabetic, it is not obese. It has no other risk factor capable of justifying the damage suffered. The only explanation of doctors for what happened is the use of the pill. She will need to take anticoagulant, anticonvulsant and antidepressant indefinitely. Anvisa reports that doctors are not required to report such cases - and rarely do so. It is therefore essential that victims or their families notify the authorities.
This is not to demonize the contraceptive pill or deny the benefits it brought to humanity. Unwanted pregnancies, especially among low-income youth, often have dire effects on the health and educational and professional history of women. The central point of this paper is another.
In most cases, the pill is safe. Otherwise we would all know of a girl who had a stroke after taking birth control. But those who use this type of contraception need to know that hormones increase the blood's ability to clot. The same can occur when the woman does menopausal hormone replacement. People who take a pill or have hormone replacement are more likely to suffer from thrombosis (clots forming inside a blood vessel). And thrombosis can lead to stroke.
This whole text is only for reviewing information. Doctors have to speak clearly about the risks so the woman can decide. An example of what could be done? Women with thrombophilia, a genetic condition that favors the formation of thrombi, can not take the pill. The information is in the package leaflet. Rare are the doctors who ask for the exam. It is necessary to include a warning about the risk of thrombosis in the packaging of the pills and the mandatory reporting of serious cases by doctors. It would be a great achievement. Garden. We need to talk about contraceptive just as seriously as we talk about antiretroviral!
