Women should choose their contraceptive methods with care, as not all pills suit people of all ages.
“The estrogen and progestin hormones play a crucial role in menstrual cycles and a woman’s ability to have children. Some of the contraceptive pills available in the market can be very harmful for women above mid-30s. So, it is necessary for a woman to consult a gynaecologist before opting for a contraceptive method,” said L. Suleman, a gynaecologist from All India Institute of Medical Sciences, New Delhi, on Wednesday.
Shanti Roy from Patna spoke on vaccines available for prevention of cervical cancer.
The doctors were among the participants at the 57th All India Congress of Obstetrics and Gynaecology.
The meet’s next edition would be held in Chennai.
