The side-effects of the pill and IUD

“Complications arising from the use of the Pill are very frequent. Infertility after its use for 7-15 years is a very serious problem. S crypts are very sensitive to normal and cyclical stimulation by natural oestrogens, and the Pill causes atrophy of these crypts. Fertility is impaired, treatment is difficult. [...] After 3 to 15 months of contraceptive pill use, there is a greater loss of the S crypt cells than can be replaced [...] A pregnancy rejuvenates the cervix by 2-3 years, but for each year the Pill is taken, the cervix ages by an extra year.” - Professor Erik Odeblad, Sweden
