The birth control pill also helps in multiple other ways:
Mala-N or Combined Oral Contraceptives do not cause birth defects. It also does not harm the fetus if a woman becomes pregnant while taking the pills or accidentally consumes them while she is pregnant.
Mala – N does not cause cancer. The use of Mala – N is proven to decrease the risk of two gynecological cancers (ovarian and uterine) and also protects against benign breast disease like fibroids and cyst of breast.
Over a period of time, a woman’s weight might fluctuate due to varied age related factors or life circumstances and should not be attributed only to the use of Combined Oral Contraceptives. However, any noticeable change in weight that takes place due to the use of COCs will reverse once the client stops taking the pills.
There is no evidence that COCs affect a woman’s sex drive. Although some women using the pill have reported either an increase or decrease in sexual interest and performance, it is difficult to say whether such changes are a result of Combined Oral Contraceptives or other life events.
