Contraceptive Pills Protect From Womb Cancer

birth control pills

Contraceptive pills come with some side effects and health risks. However, beside their obvious benefit of preventing unwanted pregnancy, they also have other health benefits.

A recent review of studies published in the Lancet Oncology Journal suggested that contraceptive pills had saved about 200,000 women from womb cancer in the last ten years.

The review of thirty-six studies showed that, in the last decade, the incidence of womb cancer in women under 75 years old went down from 2.3 to 1.3 in 100.

Even though taking the pill is usually not recommended for women with a family history of heart disease, stroke and breast cancer, this recent research is good news for women who do take it, because womb cancer can be hard to detect in its early stages.
