Here all the drain on the contrary! Hormonal contraceptives soften the manifestation of menopause and even can delay its appearance a little. This is due to zafollikulyarnogo reserve, if a woman began to take oral protection before, tomenstruatsii last longer, because hormonal tablets do not give the egg.
3. Taking hormonal contraceptives can cause and develop cancer.
There is no evidence that there isThere is some connection between liver cancer and hormonal contraceptives.

A cancer of the cervix appears due to infection, because it is caused by highly-cancerous strains of papillomavirus.
4. From combined oral contraceptives, libido can decrease.

From the point of view of medicine, there is no benefit to the organism in the interruptions of the similar city, besides, after you take a break and start taking the tablets again, the side effects (here m intermenstrual cortexes) can only become higher during the first three months, because the body will wean and He will need to re-adapt to taking combined oral contraceptives. Moreover, because of these intermittent spasms, the fourth woman suffers an unintended pregnancy, so there are doubts uzhny voobschekakie whether any interruptions; They may also be reduced and that the positive effects neotnosyatsya to contraceptives, necessarily associated with the intake gormonalnyhtabletok.
