Nearly all women use contraception at any given time in their lifetime. Most women take oral contraceptive (OC) pills to prevent pregnancy; however, 14% use them for non-contraceptive purposes. While the pill benefits and empowers women to decide whether to have a child and work outside their homes, women often do not have access to resources to reduce the potential risks associated with the pill. Physicians and other healthcare professionals should be aware of more nutrition risks than commonly understood while on the OC to treat patients and clients better.
