[Fans’ letter] I went to blind dates because I had a lot of acne on my face and failed 30 times.The blind date this time is a gentleman, polite and kind.He didn’t stare at the acne on my face like others, but talked to me about his work and his hobbies interestingly.Just in our third date, he suddenly saw the contraceptives I put in the bag, and mistakenly thought that I was pregnant. I explained that I had a lot of work pressure recently. I had a lot of acne on my face and took contraceptives to treat it.
Contraceptives are a widely used contraceptive method in modern society. It plays an important role in family planning and women’s health.Contraceptives can not only effectively prevent pregnancy, but also have other positive effects.
1. contraceptive function
Avoid accidental pregnancy: Oral contraceptives can prevent ovulation by providing synthetic feminin (progesterone and estrogen) and reduce fertilization opportunities.It also makes the cervical mucus thick, hinders the sperm into the uterus, and at the same time make the endometrium thinner and reduce the possibility of bed.The combination of these effects makes contraceptives a highly reliable contraceptive method. When used correctly, the contraceptive success rate can be as high as 99%.The contraceptive principle of contraceptives mainly includes the following three aspects:
(1) Prevent ovulation: Oral contraceptives contain synthetic estrogen and progesterone. They simulate natural hormones in women, inhibit the function of the hypothalamus-pituitary-ovarian axis, and prevent ovarian ovulation.Without ovulation, there is no egg to fertilize, and naturally reduce the chance of conception.
(2) Change cervical mucus: contraceptive pills make the cervical mucus thick, hindering sperm into the uterus.Cervical mucus is thin, which is convenient for sperm through. The contraceptive pills change this condition, making it difficult for sperm to enter the uterine cavity through the cervix.
(3) Change the endometrium: contraceptive pills can also thin the endometrium, which makes it difficult to bed.Even if sperm successfully enters the uterus, it is difficult to get bed in the weak endometrium and develop into a fetus.
2. Adjust the menstrual cycle
(1) Principles of menstrual regulatory function: The menstrual regulation function of contraceptive pills is achieved by adjusting hormone levels.Normal menstrual cycles are regulated by multiple hormones, including estrogen and progesterone.Some women may have irregular menstruation, long or too short interval, and dysmenorrhea due to the imbalance or other reasons of the hormone level in the body.
Contraceptive pills contain synthetic estrogen and progesterone to simulate the level of natural hormones in women, help adjust ovarian function and endometrial growth and fall off, and achieve the law of menstrual cycle.For women with unstable menstrual cycle, oral contraceptives can help them establish healthier menstrual cycles and enhance the predictability and controllability of menstruation.
(2) Relieve dysmenorrhea symptoms: Dysmenorrhea is a common menstrual problem that causes physical and mental distress to many women.Dysmenorrhea may be caused by uterine contraction, or it may be related to inflammation or other gynecological issues.The progesterone component of contraceptives can reduce uterine contraction and relieve dysmenorrhea symptoms.Because contraceptives can adjust hormone levels, it can also reduce some inflammatory response related to menstruation and relieve dysmenorrhea.
3. Improve the quality of women’s life
(1) Improve skin condition: contraceptives contain synthetic estrogen and progesterone. These hormones have a certain effect on the health of the skin.Estrogen can stimulate the synthesis of collagen in the skin, maintain the elasticity and firmness of the skin, and slow down the aging of the skin.Estrogen can also inhibit the secretion of sebaceous glands, reduce excessive cause of skin oil, and improve the problem of oily skin and acne.
(2) Relieve menstrual discomfort: Menstruation is a period of trouble for many women, accompanied by discomfort such as abdominal pain, headache, breast pain.The progesterone composition of contraceptives can regulate the growth and falling of the endometrium, making the menstrual cycle more regular, reducing uterine contraction, and reducing symptoms of abdominal pain.E progression can also balance water and salt metabolism in the body, reduce edema and breast tenderness.
(3) Improve menstrual blood loss: For some women, the amount of blood loss during menstruation may have a large amount of blood, which leads to anemia or weak body.By regulating hormone levels, contraceptives make the endometrium grow more regularly, reduce the amount of blood loss, and reduce the risk of anemia and the weakness of the body.
4. Protect women’s health
(1) Risk of reducing endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and uterine fibroids: endometriosis, ovarian cysts, and uterine fibroids are common gynecological diseases, which will bring great great health and life to womenPassion.Long -term use of contraceptives can reduce the risk of these diseases.Hormones in contraceptives can inhibit ovarian function, reduce the development and growth of follicles in the ovaries, and reduce the possibility of suffering from ovarian cysts.Contraceptives can also regulate the growth and falling of endometrium, reducing the incidence of endometriosis and the incidence of uterine fibroids.
(2) Reducing the risk of ovarian cancer and endometrial cancer: Ovarian cancer and endometrial cancer are common malignant tumors for women and threatened physical health.Long -term use of contraceptives can reduce the risk of these two cancers. The estrogen component in contraceptives can inhibit ovulation of the ovarian, reduce the exposure time of ovarian epithelial cells, and reduce the probability of suffering from ovarian cancer.Contraceptives can also reduce excessive hyperplasia of the endometrium and reduce the risk of endometrial cancer.
5. Promote gender equality
(1) Autonomous control of fertility rights and occupational development: The use of contraceptives makes women easier to control their own fertility rights.When women can rationally plan for fertility, they can make a balanced choice between career and family responsibilities.Unexpected pregnancy may adversely affect women’s career development, and limits their opportunities for promotion in the workplace.
(2) Balanced contraceptive responsibility: contraceptive liability is mainly borne by women, and the widespread application of contraceptives allows men to participate in the contraceptive plan.Some partners can discuss and choose the appropriate contraceptive method to make fertility decisions more equal and fair.This balanced contraceptive responsibility helps to establish an equal relationship between men and women and promote the progress of gender equality.
The popularization and use of contraceptives can better promote gender equality, so that women can enjoy more rights and autonomy at society, families and personal levels.As a drug, women should consult a doctor before using contraceptives, combined with the actual conditions of their bodies, and use the doctor’s guidance correctly to ensure safety and effectiveness.
