Female Contraception Linked to Serious Risk for Depression


Is it any surprise that profound unhappiness results from contravening our basic needs and inner nature?

A NEW STUDY has provided compelling evidence that women who regularly use the most common type of contraceptive pills — those combining two hormones — are 23 percent more likely than non-users to need antidepressant drugs at the same time.

Multiple forms of female contraception were investigated by the University of Copenhagen, not just the most common type of pill. The progestogen-only pill, for example, appears to increase the risk of using antidepressants by 34 percent.

The contraceptive patch increases the risk by a staggering 100 percent, whereas the vaginal ring ups the risk by 60 percent. Use of an intrauterine system (IUS) increases the risk by 40 percent.

Adolescent girls were the highest risk group — those between the ages of 15 and 19 on the combined pill were 80 percent more likely to require antidepressants.

“We have to realize among all the benefits, external hormones (also) may have side effects. And the risk of depression is one of them,” study co-author Dr Ojvind Lidegaard, clinical professor in obstetrics and gynecology at the University of Copenhagen, said in a statement.

Published in the journal JAMA Psychiatry, the authors do make it very clear that the pill may not directly cause depression — there’s no clear evidence for that yet. They just point out that there is indeed a worrying correlation that should be investigated further.

The study was the largest of its kind, featuring more than 1 million Danish women between the ages of 15 and 34, whose health records were traced over a 13-year period. The physical side effects of the pill are fairly well known, but this research is the first of its kind to comprehensively find a link between the contraceptive method and potential mental health issues. …

I’ve heard claims that Whites are only 6% of the world’s population (6 is the lowest I have heard, but I’ve also heard percentages thrown around that are not much higher). Out of 7 billion people, 6% would mean that there’s only 420 million Whites. Are these people NUTS? Where the Hell do they get these percentages? There’s 200 million Whites in the US alone! I’ve read a comment on here claiming there are 700 million of us. That still seems way too low to me. Aren’t there 700 million in Europe alone? What about the additional 200 million in America? What about all of Australia and South America and the rest of the world where there are some Whites here and there? Shouldn’t there still be well over a… Read more »

If birth control depresses them, abortion must kill their very souls.
