Are you overweight or have hypertension and need a contraceptive method that does not negatively impact these diseases?
Oral contraceptives are the solution!
Claudia Rampazzo, sexuality specialist and couple therapist, mentioned in a press conference that the World Health Organization has evaluated certain criteria, based on scientific evidence, which have been designed to expand access to contraceptive use without putting risk your health.
Today, women can be free to choose the contraceptive method that best suits their lifestyle, even if they are patients suffering from specific diseases such as smoking, obesity and hypertension, "he said.
In that sense, women smokers do not run the risk of clot formation as could happen with other contraceptive methods.
The specialist said that combined oral contraceptives (COCs) of microdoses can be an alternative for women who are older, who smoke, who take care of their weight and who have acne problems.
Rampazzo ended with the recommendation not to leave aside the medical consultation so that the specialist carries a medical history and is the one who selects the ideal contraceptive method for each woman who does not impact her lifestyle.
