To get a moment of happiness, or covet convenience, many females would regard morning-after pills as a good way to mend the unprotected sex. However, morning-after pills have some side effects. They will lead to some health problems.
Symptoms like nausea and vomiting appear after taking the pills
Morning-after pills should not be used as a regular contraceptive method. Actually, they should not be used more than three times every year.
Generally, after taking the pills, many females would include nausea, vomiting, and sometimes breast tenderness, headache, dizziness, fatigue, etc. These symptoms always last less than 24 hours. But sometimes, some women may appear vaginal bleeding. And some others may have their menstrual period in advance or delayed. Wuhan Dr. Lee
warns that, morning-after pills focus on inhibiting ovulation and preventing fertilized egg implantation. They increase the resistance for sperm penetration, thus playing the role of contraception. However, they are not 100% successful in contraception effectiveness. If the menstruation delays 1 week, females should do the urine pregnancy test to make clear whether the contraceptive method is failed.
Abuse of these pills can cause serious consequences
Many women did not notice the side effects before taking morning-after pills. They do not know the hazards, so some of them even take these pills three to five times a month. Due to long-term excessive intake of morning-after pills, females easily get menstrual disorders. Some of them can even unfortunately get pelvic inflammatory disease
, thereby increasing the risk of infertility and ectopic pregnancy. Dr. Lee suggests that, females should receive timely treatment at this time. And oral patent medicine fuyan pill
is a good choice.
What' s more, whatever kind of morning-after pills, it contains large amounts of progesterone. It can quickly inhibit ovulation, but at the same time it makes the cervical mucus more stiff. Besides, it can also affect the endometrium, causing uterine bleeding.
For girls, taking emergency contraception brings more harm. Due to the immature endocrine reproductive organs, girls are easier to have menstrual disorders, and they will experience some irreversible effects on their ovary and uterus development. And the final results would be the premature ovarian senescence.
Morning-after pills are not suitable for everyone
Morning-after pills are always taken when there is no other solution. However, they are not suitable for everyone. For example, patients with hepatitis or nephritis are banned to take these pills. The reason lies in that, the hormone drugs need have metabolism in the liver and be expelled from the kidneys; containing large dose of progesterone, the morning-after pills will no doubt increase the burden of liver and kidney.
In addition, morning-after pills can accelerate the blood coagulation, increasing the risk of thrombosis and high glycemic. Therefore, all kinds of haematology, thrombosis and diabetes patients should avoid taking these medicines.
