Taking the pill may damage a woman’s fertility by quickening her biological “clock”, a new study has found.
Researchers in Denmark tested 833 women to see what effect the contraceptive pill had on their reproductive systems. They found that the contraceptive can temporarily drain a woman’s ovarian reserve, a measure of the ovary’s capacity to produce eggs capable of fertilization.
The ovarian reserve is determined by the combination of two measurements which make up what is commonly referred to as the Biological Body Clock Test. Both the anti-Mullerian Hormone (AMH) levels in the blood and the antral follicles in the ovaries are measured to establish the ovarian reserve.
The study found that both the AMH levels and the antral follicle measurements were diminished in the women who were on the Pill by 19 and 16 percent, respectively, thus reducing their chances of conceiving.
Dr. Katherine Birch Peterson from the Copenhagen University Hospital, who presented the study to the European Society of Human Reproduction and Embryology, said that “the pill may mask a severely diminished ovarian reserve… and this is important to recognize."
The research also showed that pill users’ ovaries were between 29-52% smaller than those who were not on the pill.
Though the researchers said they believe the detrimental results of using the pill may only be temporary, they added that further research is necessary.
“We do not believe the pill changes the ovaries in any permanent way. But we still need to know more about the recovery phase after women stop the pill,” said Dr. Birch Peterson.
Dr. Birch Peterson maintains that women should wait three months after using the pill to be tested in order to have a more accurate measurement of fertility.

This has been known for a long time. It also affects a woman’s libido.
NOTHING the left tries to ‘sell’ women is anything other than Snake Oil!
Our esteemed Pres**ent must do something.
It took my sister three years off the pill before she could conceive.
It’s important for women to know this, given the amount of money spent on advertising to sell the pill. One would think that it is perfectly safe.
[ The research also showed that pill users ovaries were between 29-52% smaller than those who were not on the pill. ]
Men who take testosterone for body building have testicular shrinkage because their bodies other hormonal system tell their bodies to stop making too much testosterone and that in turn will shrink the testes.
No duh it would also happen with estrogen and ovaries in women who take estrogen.
Studies have also shown that it lowers bone density causing osteoporosis later in life.
DUH! Damaging women’s fertility is the WHOLE FREEPING POINT.
Oh it’s a wonder drug alright
Any woman stupid enough to trust big pharm and the AMA with her life and well being to taking this stuff daily for years on end just so she can be a sex object for her stupid selfish husband is idiotic enough to vote for a Kenyan born lady hating interloper for president
And that’s where we are
The pill’s sole purpose is to make sex a purely physical activity. As such it takes life out of marriage and ruins that relationship. The statistics show that It affects the body to make it think it is pregnant. No phermones no attraction from men hence predatory behavior from scantily clad women and girls. The pill is a class I carcinogen no better thatarlborp cigarettes
The pill affects women’s brains making them attracted to girly men
The pill when it fails and it does, leads to abortion. It is the root cause of abortion
The pill causes the elimination of fertilized ova by making the uterus an inhospitable environment for life. That soul gets flushed down the drain
The CDC reports 300,000,000 such abortions since 1970
So just duh!
Oh. And the pill causes stroke
If anyone is awake and alert enough to just wonder why there are so many incidents of breast cancer at this point in time then they are just stupidly trusting the birth control industry
They can tally up a figure for unintended side effects?
Normal pregnancies seem to reduce the risk of such cancers.
You want me to argue CDC reports? Ask them
Well, yeah, pregnancy is normal
They threw a bunch of numbers in a blender and that came out.
Thank-you for this. I hope others can have these bullet points at hand when they are making the decision to take birth control.
I myself never did because I did not want my body to be “tricked.”
