Wáberer Medical Centre Budapest Insight: All you Need  to Know  about Contraceptives
Wáberer Medical Centre’s excellent specialists approach treatments from the most innovative perspective in all areas.

This is not different in the center’s Gynecology Center, which has a modern medical instrument base to work with, an outstanding medical team, and a technical background such as da Vinci robotic surgery, complete imaging diagnostics (MR, CT, X-ray) and laboratory tests, as well as similar fields such as urogynecology, urology or internal medicine.

Dr. Róbert Koiss, gynecological oncologist and HPV specialist at Wáberer Medical Center, shared his knowledge about contraception, a topic that concerns many, during a conversation.

Contraception at a young age

In adolescence, during puberty, the follicle hormone and the corpus luteum hormone almost compete. At this period of life, it is a completely normal to have symptoms such as irregular menstrual cycle, greasy hair and skin.

In the past, gynecologists reacted to this - incorrectly - by prescribing contraceptives. However, the opinion regarding this theory has now changed.

This is due to the fact that the contraceptive drug exerts its effect in such cases by stopping the natural process of the functioning of the ovaries, which practically interrupts sexual maturation.

The ladies experienced the side effects of contraceptive pills, when they wanted to have a child, but their confused hormonal system couldn’t let it happen. For this reason, it is now recommended to start taking the drug from the age of 20 for the purpose of contraception or acne prevention.

What has changed the composition of medicines over the decades?

According to the former state of science, they used to go to the safe side for contraception, and because of this, medicines often contained an unnecessary amount of hormones.

To be safe as possible today, experts strive to dose a minimal amount of hormones. What also has changed compared to the past decades is that monophasic pills, i.e. pills with the same and low hormone content, have come to the fore.

Today's low-hormonal contraceptives also have beneficial effects. Research has shown that they protect against ovarian cancer and endometriosis. Women who regularly take birth control pills are 60% less likely to get sick with the mentioned diseases than women who do not take hormonal preparations.

Contraception after giving birth

For patients who are over the age of forty and no longer planning to have children are less recommended to take birth control pill. As the risk of thrombosis and the possibility of blood clot formation increases, it is recommended to use another modern alternative.

The so-called a hormone-containing signal-transmitting system (not a spiral) is a hormonal contraceptive option that acts concentratedly, but only locally, i.e. in the uterus, thus less burden on the body.

It also reduces menopausal symptoms such as hot flashes, mood swings, or irregular menstruation. In addition, the risk of endometrial cancer is reduced to almost 0%.
