Let’s talk about the potential dangers associated with taking birth control pills. 

There is no real estrogen or progesterone in birth control pills. Instead, there are synthetic versions of estrogen and progesterone that have been altered to mimic these hormones. But, there can be side effects. 

Increased risks associated with birth control pills:
• Heart attacks 
• High blood pressure 
• Stroke 
• Blood clots 
• Breast cancer 
• Dementia 
• Depression 
• Acne 
• Mood swings 
• Lupus 
• Weight gain 
• A deficiency in zinc and selenium 
• Melasma 
• An alteration of the microbiome 

Birth control pills shut down the production of estrogen and progesterone, which can have long-term effects on your health. It may even affect longevity. 

However, there is a hormone-free option that is FDA cleared and is 93-99% effective, depending on how well it’s implemented. This form of birth control is called Natural Cycles, and it doesn’t involve any medication whatsoever. 

If you’ve been on birth control pills or decide to continue taking birth control pills, it may be beneficial to do things to counter some of the chemicals in your liver. 

You can do this by consuming more cruciferous and fermented vegetables. You may also want to take zinc, selenium, B12, magnesium, and a good probiotic.
