I am not sharing this to scare you or make you feel guilty. When our life depends on our environment and our environment is hijacked by perception managers (they are hidden monsters, everywhere! From school to church/temple to govt! Everywhere!) , this is bound to happen. From govt advertisement to popular Bollywood entertainment to social-media managers, everyone is trying to convince you one thing:
“Life is short and for fun! So take a pill and enjoy!!”
“अनचाहे गर्भसे मुक्ति! – True form of freedom! My choice! ”
Any engineering experiment on body is karma. Karma acts like boomerang. Don’t repent if you taken the pills in past. Do प्रायश्चित! (Now, don’t be so arrogant & pseudo atheist and tell me that you don’t believe in it and all! Suggesting you one of the powerful tool to cleanse mental and physical wrong-doing and help body in healing! Even atheist need प्रायश्चित as they too share them biology and psychology of human mind! 😉 🙂 )
At least, let us save our next generation. Educate them in right sense. Let them know the real picture and help them realize that this body is not machine or gadgets and it is not that simple to shut-down progeny generation as you switch off the light or fan!
Contemporary Hormonal Contraception and the Risk of Breast Cancer
Little is known about whether contemporary hormonal contraception is associated with an increased risk of breast cancer.
Among 1.8 million women who were followed on average for 10.9 years (a total of 19.6 million person-years), 11,517 cases of breast cancer occurred. As compared with women who had never used hormonal contraception, the relative risk of breast cancer among all current and recent users of hormonal contraception was 1.20 (95% confidence interval [CI], 1.14 to 1.26). This risk increased from 1.09 (95% CI, 0.96 to 1.23) with less than 1 year of use to 1.38 (95% CI, 1.26 to 1.51) with more than 10 years of use (P=0.002). After discontinuation of hormonal contraception, the risk of breast cancer was still higher among the women who had used hormonal contraceptives for 5 years or more than among women who had not used hormonal contraceptives. Risk estimates associated with current or recent use of various oral combination (estrogen–progestin) contraceptives varied between 1.0 and 1.6. Women who currently or recently used the progestin-only intrauterine system also had a higher risk of breast cancer than women who had never used hormonal contraceptives (relative risk, 1.21; 95% CI, 1.11 to 1.33). The overall absolute increase in breast cancers diagnosed among current and recent users of any hormonal contraceptive was 13 (95% CI, 10 to 16) per 100,000 person-years, or approximately 1 extra breast cancer for every 7690 women using hormonal contraception for 1 year.
The risk of breast cancer was higher among women who currently or recently used contemporary hormonal contraceptives than among women who had never used hormonal contraceptives, and this risk increased with longer durations of use; however, absolute increases in risk were small.
