Is your birth control causing osteoporosis – naturmend calgary lumbar herniated disc symptoms

Synthetic hormone birth control offers women a reliable way to prevent pregnancy.

Don’t let that name of estrogen fool you. Ethinyl estradiol is not bio-identical to estradiol (the most active estrogen in our body), and does not appear to support healthy bone development, especially in adolescent lumbar herniated disc symptoms use.

There is agreement that in adolescents, combination pills with higher levels of ethinyl radiografia dorsolumbar estradiol lead to lower gains in bone mineral density (BMD) during use, and even after discontinuing use, when compared to female adolescents who were not using oral contraception. The largest differences in BMD are in the lumbar spine, although hip estenosis lumbar severa, distal radius, and total body also declined.

Progestin only pills and injections have mixed results in the research in terms of BMD and fracture risk, and the World Health Organization states the progestin only birth control options are safe for long term use when it comes to BMD and fracture risk in women.
