    How the Pill transforms your personality

    After more than a decade on the Pill, our family complete, my husband and I decided on a more permanent way to prevent pregnancy.
    He took the lead by having a vasectomy, and I ditched the Pill. But a couple of months later, I realised that I felt . . . different. I didnít notice it while it was happening, but one day I realised my life had recently felt brighter and more interesting. Like I had walked out of a two-dimensional, black-and-white movie into a full-colour, three-dimensional, meaning-filled reality. I started exercising again and cooking ó things I used to enjoy but had kind of forgotten about.
    I had more energy. I noticed attractive men. I cared about how I looked in a way I hadnít in a long time. I just felt . . . alive. Fully, vividly, awesomely, humanly alive. This didnít happen all at once.


    One day I realised I felt awake from an almost ten-year nap I hadnít known I was taking. This, alongside some revelations uncovered at a couple of academic conferences ó held by the society for Social and Personality Psychology and the Human Behavior and Evolution society ó led me to investigate further.
    And what I found out has been mind-blowing: the Pill fundamentally changes who we are as people ó it affects sex, attraction, stress, hunger, eating patterns, emotion regulation, friendships, aggression, mood, learning, and so many other things. Most women who take the Pill do so for a very targeted effect (preventing pregnancy) or for a handful of other reasons (eg. clearer skin, knowing the exact day when you will start your period).
    However, targeted effects just arenít possible when taking a hormone, because hormones, the bodyís chemical messengers, arenít specific.


    They broadcast a message to the whole body, making sure thereís a coordinated response to the matter in hand, be that digestion, sleep, stress, or virtually anything else ó and theyíre essential for survival. The point is that though the contraceptive Pill will have the desired effect in preventing pregnancy, itís not targeted. Itís sort of like dropping an atomic bomb on your house to blow out a candle.
    Yes, it will work. But its other effects make it a fairly unpopular way to deal with oneís candle-extinguishing needs.

    I took the Pill for 6 months many years ago. I could not stand how it made me feel. I instead used natural BC. I feel like I had a major advantage over women on the pill because my body was able to respond to what was real. Menopause for me was also not hard or emotional at all. I did gain some weight but lost it quickly and, I never had hot flashes or murderous out burst.

    An academic study has revealed that taking birth control pills on a daily basis shrinks the hypothalamus region of the brain in females, and the findings were presented to the Radiological Society of North America on Wednesday.
    “It may not represent a risk at all. It may just represent a way we see the effect of how the drug works,” said Michael Lipton, a radiologist at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine and Montefiore Medical Center in New York City who conducted the research.
    Lipton discussed the research at the conference, and he notes that hypothalamus damage can result in change in appetite, sexual drive, and the regulation of blood sugar. The hypothalamus regulates hormones in the body, and this part of the brain is so small that it is difficult to measure through images from a standard scan. Lipton determined the results of the study through a meticulously careful study of MRI scans.

    “I like to tell people that for all parts of the body, size matters most in the brain,” Lipton said.


    In addition, evidence is growing that birth control usage causes different structures of the brain to change in size. A large body of anecdotal evidence has indicated that women act erratically while on birth control, and now the science is finally starting to back that up.
    Lipton points out that more research is needed to build upon this preliminary study, and it will be a long time before the negative ramifications of the reduced hypothalamus are fully understood.
    “It might one day be part of the conversation when talking with a doctor about birth control,” Lipton said. “But it’s way too soon to tell.”
