TREATING SYMPTOMS WITH THE PILL

Knowing your symptoms and options

There are many factors to consider when choosing the right birth control, including your age, effectiveness, side effects, cost, lifestyle, and whether you plan to have children.

The hub.health medical team will be able to advise you on the best method of birth control based on your individual health needs and preferences.

Choosing the right birth control

When deciding upon which form of oral contraceptive is best suited to your individual needs, it’s important to identify any symptoms that may be related to menstrual conditions.

The list of important things for personal consideration and to discuss with your healthcare provider, include:

Birth control

Age

Birth control pills are most effective in women who are under the age of 35, and the risk of side effects increases with age. Older women are also more likely to have medical conditions that could interact with the pill, making it less effective. That being said, there are many older women who take the pill without any problems. It is important to talk to your doctor about your specific situation to determine if the pill is right for you.

 

Effectiveness

The birth control pill is more than 99% effective when taken daily as directed, making the pill one of the most reliable forms of contraception available. However, if your lifestyle makes it difficult to take the pill at the same time every day, whether due to travel or an inconsistent work schedule, the efficacy of the pill may decrease. Speak to your medical provider for birth control options that require less upkeep.

 

Side effects

There are many different types of birth control pills, and each one comes with its own set of side effects. For some women, these side effects are minor and manageable. For others, the side effects of the pill can be more severe and may even lead to a discontinuation of the pill. When choosing the best birth control pill for you, it is important to consider the potential side effects and how they may impact your daily life. 

 

Cost

The best birth control plan is the one that comfortably fits within your budget. Committing to a higher-priced birth control pill may become a burden in the long term, and cause you to skip buying it altogether. Speak with your doctor about the most affordable birth control options for you.

Health risks

The health risks of taking birth control pills vary depending on the type of pill, your age, and your health history. Generally, the risks of taking birth control pills are low; however, they still exist. The most common side effects of birth control pills are nausea, headaches, and weight gain. More serious side effects, such as blood clots and stroke, are also possible.

 

Lifestyle

Each type of birth control pill has its pros and cons. If you have a busy lifestyle, you may choose a pill that is low maintenance and easy to take every day. If you are sexually active, you may want to choose a pill that has a lower risk of causing side effects such as decreased libido or mood swings. There is no one-size-fits-all answer when it comes to choosing a birth control pill, however, taking your lifestyle into account can help you make the best decision for your needs.

 

Planning to have children in the future

If you are hoping to start a family in the future, you may want to choose a pill that does not have a long-term impact on fertility. Remember to mention your plans when speaking with your doctor or healthcare provider, as they will consider this information when prescribing the birth control pill.

Depending on your age and severity of symptoms, your doctor may prescribe a treatment plan including medical grade topical moisturising cream, oral medications, phototherapy, over-the-counter remedies, immunosuppressants, lifestyle modifications, and behavioural therapies.
