"Opill" and its "SYNTHETIC HORMONE" called . . . "PROGESTIN"


So today . . . let's finish the conversation about the NEW "birth control pill" called . . . "Opill"


Okay . . . so as I stated the other day . . . this little pill . . . claims to "only" have 1 ingredient called . . . "progestin"!


So, let's break it down to better understand . . .


First question . . . what's the difference between "progesterone" and "progestin"???


Well . . . simply put . . . "progesterone" . . . is a "naturally" occurring "steroid hormone" made in varying amounts by men and women.


Whereas . . . "progestin" . . . is a "SYNTHETIC man-made chemical" . . . that mimics the effects of "progesterone" in the body.


And the Mayo Clinic says . . . "progestin" works by causing "CHANGES" in the "UTERUS".


What???


How can that be a "good" idea???


Well . . . the reason they "ONLY" use "progestin" that mimics our "natural" progesterone . . . therefore eliminating the "estrogen" that other birth control pills use is this . . .


"Estrogen DOMINANCE" . . . can cause "uterine cells" to multiply out of control . . . potentially leading to the development of "cancer".


That's why they only use "progesterone" . . . and NOT "estrogen" . . .


BUT . . . it's not even "REAL" progesterone . . . it's a "chemical" called . . . "progestin"!!!


So why is this so very wrong???


Well . . . simply put . . . "progestin" has the ability to "counteract" certain "BENIFICAL" effects of "estrogen" . . .


And this effect . . . can differ on the body's "brain metabolism".


"Progestin" can cause "hair loss"!!!


Irritability

Depression

And anxiety


And if we're talking about "CANCER" . . .


Medical News Today says . . .


"The researchers concluded that current or recent "progestin-only" contraceptives are linked to an "INCREASE" in "BREAST CANCER" risk.


So, if "I" were still in the age range of needing a contraceptive . . .


It definitely wouldn't be THIS little pill called "OPILL"!


Next week . . . we'll be talking about another "HIDDEN" danger to our health.


Have a safe and healthy weekend and please . . . stay "mindful"!
