Holy Hormones Journal: As I have mentioned before – birth control is the largest uncontrolled experiment in medical history. Sadly, much of the information coming out today in research and studies was documented in the 1970 Nelson Pill Hearings – the Senate hearings held on the risks associated with the birth control pill. Too many women are prescribed birth control and then in a few months go back to their doctors citing depression and anxiety – and then they are issued a scrip for an anti-depressant.
Did your doctor mention depression and suicide were a risk factor for birth control use? No, I did not think so. Just like they gloss over the fact the hormonal contraception increases your risk for developing blood clots, DVT – deep vein thrombosis, heart attack or stroke.
Don’t you think it is time that women took their health back into their own hands? Haven’t we had enough of population control that puts our lives at risk? And it not only our lives – but female teen suicide rates are higher than all other demographics according to the CDC.
You might ask – why are we having these problems now? The answer is simple. Our daughters are experiencing the epigenetic effects of generation hormone contraceptive use – that has slowly weakened our endocrine system functioning with each passing generation. Add to the increased use of plastics and other xenoestrogens in our environment along with the decrease in nutrients in our foods.
New Study Finds Hormonal Birth Control Triples Women’s Risk Of Suicide
The pill was introduced nearly 60 years ago. Why are we only now beginning to document some of hormonal birth control’s serious side-effects?

When today’s feminists say “reproductive rights,” they’re usually referring to the “right” to taxpayer-funded abortion and contraceptives. But many feminists conveniently ignore a far more basic “reproductive right”: the right of a woman to know whether the prescriptions she takes may increase her chances of committing suicide. According to a new study, some do.
“In a study published in the American Journal of Psychiatry, researchers in Denmark report that women taking hormonal contraceptives — like birth control pills, the patch, the ring and hormonal IUDs — have up to tripled the risk of suicide as women who never took hormonal birth control,” Time reports, adding:
Among women who used hormonal contraceptives currently or recently, the risk of attempting suicide was nearly double that of women who had never used contraceptives. The risk was triple for suicide. The patch was linked to the highest risk of suicide attempts, followed by IUD, the vaginal ring and then pills.
The study, published on November 17, followed nearly half a million women for an average of more than eight years. Notably, the risk for suicide and attempted suicide is still low. Of the women researchers tracked, 6,999 made a first suicide attempt and 71 committed suicide. Across the United States, overall suicide rates have risen from 11 per 100,000 individuals in 2006 to 13.26 in 2015. Women are more likely than men to attempt suicide, but men are more likely to succeed.
