Birth Control Should Not Injure You

Because birth control medications affect a woman's hormonal balance, birth control can be dangerous and have serious effects.

Birth control pills cause the body to increase its estrogen level, in effect convincing the body that it is pregnant at all times so that pregnancy can't occur. These consistently high levels of estrogen are not natural for the body, and most popular forms of oral birth control medication come with increased risk of injuries and complications that include:

  • Blood clots
  • Breast cancer, cervical cancer and other forms of cancer
  • Migraines
  • Nausea
  • High blood pressure
  • Weight gain
  • Mood swings
  • Breast tenderness

Birth control implants and other medical devices that are used to prevent pregnancy carry similar risks.

Most of the literature available regarding the dangers of birth control pills comes from drug manufacturers and medical facilities. Although they usually fulfill their obligations to list the potential risks of these drugs, they will certainly not emphasize the dangers involved. At the Law Office of Jean Sutton Martin, we are here to help you if you have been harmed by birth control.
