Oral contraceptive.- A study recently published in the prestigious
European Journal of Preventive Cardiology has revealed that the consumption of oral contraceptive increases the risk of suffering from high blood pressure, especially among teenagers.
A team of researchers from the Royal Perth Hospital of the University of Notre Dam and the Telethon Institute of Children Health, both institutions in Australia, have concluded that teenagers who use oral contraceptives are more likely to suffer a heart attack in a near future.
Doctors have explained the conclusions of their research, conducted after monitoring more than
1,200 teenagers, during the European Congress of Cardiology affirming that besides cardiovascular risks, the contraceptive pills in teenagers can cause an increase of weight.
