Dr. Oz: Is the Birth Control Pill Making You Sick?
Can the birth control pill be hurting millions of women without them even knowing? Dr. Oz talked on his show about how doctors are now finding disturbing things about the pill, despite the fact that the pill has helped three generations of women.
It turns out the reason some women have serious side effects when they take birth control pills could be found in their DNA. Gynecologist Dr. Lauren Streicher told Dr. Oz that many women have low libido when they’re on the pill, but some women can actually have physical changes, which causes vaginal pain. Dr. Streicher said many gynecologists aren’t aware that the pill can cause physical pain, which means the gynecologist may not believe the woman who complains of pain after taking the pill from putting in a tampon or when they get intimate with a partner.
