Will the pill reduce my chances of getting pregnant in the future? No. Except temporarily (for a few months) in about 2% of women who have had no children. What regular checks should my physician do when I am on the pill? The only medical examination required specifically for the care of a woman on the pill is a blood pressure check once or twice a year. The physician will want to make sure you are not putting on weight and may well do an internal examination and a smear test every 3-S years. FAMIL Y PLANNING 29 How often should I have a cervical smear test carried out?
Intercourse has to be avoided until ovulation occurs and for 3 days after. Making all allowances for possible times of ovulation will usually give a 'safe' period of 11 days or so in any month. Intercourse therefore can take place only on those days, despite the woman's increased sex drive at other times in the cycle and whatever the couple's natural inclination may be. Even with a tremendous amount of motivation, self-control, and mathematical ability it is still not a reliable method of contraception and has the added disadvantages that when unplanned pregnancies do occur they have started with fertilization of an old (possibly dying) egg.
It may be caused by oestrogen affecting the walls of blood vessels and is similar to the blood pressure rise that can occur in pregnancy. In nearly all cases the blood pressure goes back to normal when the pill is stopped. Heart attacks/strokes show an increased incidence in pill takers, particularly in those over the age of 3S and even more particularly in those that also smoke. The risk of a heart attack from the pill alone is one half that of a woman not taking the pill who smokes. A WOMAN WHO SMOKES AND TAKES THE PILL HAS HER CHANCES OF HAVING A HEART ATTACK INCREASED BY 20 TIMES.
