Population Action International have created an infographic detailing the economics of birth control, the Huffington Post reported November 19th. The article, “'Economics Of Birth Control' Infographic Is The Most Important Thing You'll See Today,” noted that the infographic shows how much a lack of access to contraception impacts not just women and their children, but the amount countries spend on basic services for entire populations. Population Action commented, ‘For every $1 we invest in family planning, we save $4 in other areas like education, public health, and water and sanitation.’ (

With this in mind, Yourwellness Magazine explored the pros and cons of the birth control pill. According to Yourwellness Magazine, ‘Although condoms are the only birth control method that protects your wellbeing from STIs, they are not 100% effective at preventing pregnancy – and, in the heat of the moment, they can be forgotten altogether. Therefore, it’s a wise idea to take your sexual health into your own hands, and use a second method of birth control. As many women turn to the Pill to guard their wellness against unwanted pregnancies, let’s take a closer look at what the Pill is, what it does, and whether or not it’s a good option for you.’ (

Yourwellness Magazine explained that the birth control pill needs to be taken every day to give the body the hormones it needs to prevent pregnancy. The hormones in the Pill control the ovaries and uterus, providing the body with oestrogen and progesterone hormones that stop the ovaries from ovulating. Yourwellness Magazine added that the Pill can also affect a woman’s cervical mucus and uteri lining, which also works to prevent pregnancy. Yourwellness Magazine pointed out that the Pill may not be a good option for those who might forget to take it, as well as those who experience side effects such as irregular menstrual bleeding, mood changes, blood clots, nausea, headaches, dizziness, and breast tenderness.
