Hence, women opt for natural contraceptive and permanent contraceptive methods such as sterilization, vasectomy, tubal ligation, and withdrawal. Contraceptive pills carry serious long-term and life-threatening side effects such as increased risk of breast cancer, blood clots, and stroke. This discourages the consumers from using them. Other side effects include high blood pressure, nausea, stroke, dizziness, and mood swings.
