Myth Busted: Birth Control Will Not Increase Risk of Death

A new study reveals some great news for women who have used birth control pills. Researchers have discovered that those who have taken “the Pill” at some point in their lives have a significantly lower risk of death than those who have never taken an oral contraceptive, such as Yasmin or Alesse.

The leader of the study, Dr. Philip Hannaford of the University of Aberdeen, said in a recent statement: “many women, especially those who used the first generation of oral contraceptives many years ago, are likely to be reassured by our results. However, our findings might not reflect the experience of women using oral contraceptives today, if currently available preparations have a different risk than earlier products.”

“Women who took birth control pills had a considerably lower risk of death from medical problems like heart disease and cancers—even cancers of the uterus and ovary—compared with other women”

Surprisingly, the study also found that women who take birth control pills are at a higher risk of violent or accidental death. But, the authors of the study are not exactly sure why this is so.

The long term study, led by Hannaford and colleagues, followed 46,000 women for a period of almost 40 years. The researchers noticed that, in the long term, women who took birth control pills had a considerably lower risk of death from medical problems like heart disease and cancers—even cancers of the uterus and ovary—compared with other women. However, women younger than age 40 who took oral contraceptives had a slightly higher risk of death, the researchers reported.

Researchers concluded the study by saying that “oral contraception is not significantly associated with an increased long-term risk of death — indeed a net benefit was apparent.” But, they added that “the balance of risks and benefits may vary globally, depending upon patterns of oral contraception usage and background risk of disease.”
