As there should be. Suppressing progesterone is dangerous. Suppressing the brain is dangerous. Implanting or inserting or injecting (Depo Provera) with synthetic hormones dripping into the bloodstream without knowing how a young girl or woman will react is dangerous. When progesterone is suppressed with a synthetic progestin it may lead to uncontrolled bleeding. Progesterone is need to maintain the uterine lining and to prevent miscarriage. Another word for uncontrolled bleeding is hemorrhaging. And yes, pharmaceutical companies will “gloss” over everything and anything until they have made their profits and there is nowhere else to hide.
But in the meantime – women become the collateral damage. Science is bearing out the fact that there is no good that comes from hormonal contraception that suppresses a vital part of the brain.
There are many menstrual advocates who believe that what the severe hormone imbalance leading to suicidal ideation, depression and anxiety have been chemically induced. Especially by progestin hormonal contraceptives.
As I have mentioned before – birth control which was once a hard-earned struggle for the right for choice – is now controlling our bodies.
Spotlight on Implanon and Mirena long-acting reversible contraceptives, as women report severe side-effects
Tuesday, December 12
There are growing fears about serious side-effects from two popular contraceptive devices, with claims concerns are being glossed over by pharmaceutical companies.
An ABC investigation has found women around the country are reporting serious concerns about the Implanon hormonal arm implant and Mirena intra-uterine devices.
Their concerns include chronic pain, pelvic inflammatory disease, serious scarring and depression.
Of more than 945,000 Implanon devices inserted in Australia over the past decade the Therapeutic Goods Administration has received more than 1,000 reports from treating doctors and specialists of side-effects and other problems.
These include more than 500 unintended pregnancies, more than 50 vaginal haemorrhages and 27 ectopic pregnancies.
