Over ten types of birth control are now available to women but several new methods have tremendous risks

Millions of women each day are faced with the decision of the right birth control method, women need to be aware of the risks associated with Depo-Provera, Ortho Evra, and the Pill.

New York City, New York - In the last few years, pharmaceutical technology for birth control has advanced beyond the common birth control pill. Now women have multiple options for preventing pregnancy but each method has its advantages and disadvantages. Some methods can lead to long-lasting health problems or death in women.

For many women, the Pill, containing estrogen and progestin hormones, has many noticeable side effects such as increased weight gain, bloating, depression, irritability, and nausea. More dangerous but lesser known side effects of the Pill and other pharmaceutical birth control include heart disease, high blood pressure, stroke, and blood clots.

With reports of women dying from unexpected heart problems, the FDA recently asked the maker of Ortho Evra to revise the label to warn against the risk of blood clot, stroke, or heart attack. The Ortho Evra Patch contains about 60% more estrogen than the Pill and is worn for 3 consecutive weeks each month.

The FDA has also ordered the maker of Depo-Provera to include the risk of Osteoporosis and bone density loss on their packaging. The loss of bone density can make women susceptible to bone fractures and breaks. Depo-Provera Contraceptive Injection, a powerful variant of the hormone progestosterone, is administered through a hypodermic shot every few months.

To support women suffering side effects, accepts consumer complaints at Ortho Evra, or Depo-Provera.
