Ask Dr. Deep : Hello Dr Deep … It seems like birth control has so many side effects. Is it worth it?
All medicines has some side effects, but when people hear the negative stuff, it sticks in their brain. That’s just human nature, and it happens to all of us. Remember that drug companies list every scary thing you could possibly experience with a medication. Even if it’s super rare. So before you run away, consider this: the potential side effects of something as simple as Paracetamol are pretty scary when you read them, too. Birth control is definitely worth it if you aren’t ready to have a baby. Pregnancy has a lot more side effects than birth control. And there are so many different birth control methods that there’s something for everyone.
