FG planning to ban Postinor 2?

There are rumours that the federal government is planning to ban birth control/morning after pill, Postinor 2, because of its side effects. (If you're a user, Google to find out the side effects).

The purported ban is the number one trending topic on Twitter right now and trust Naijas, they know how to find trouble. Hehe! People started tweeting @2face Idibia about the ban and making jokes. He didn't find it funny...lol

Linda, dont publish everything you read. There are NO proven negative impacts of Postinor (and birth control) as regards fertility. Don't peddle false information. Postinor two does not affect fertility once use is discontinued. It works when you use it but doesn't hinder subsequent conception. This idea of contraceptives hindering fertility is nothing but an urban myth created by Africans simply because they view sex as a taboo. That said Postnir two should only be used for emergencies and not as a daily form of contraception. Also remember to protect yourself unless you're very well informed about the sexual history of your partner! Cheers.

Anonymous said...

At anonymous 11.23am, perhaps you were suffering from a hormonal imbalance even BEFORE you started taking the pill. There is no medical or scientific authority to support your doctor's claim that the morning after pill created a hormonal imbalance.

How has Postinor 2 negatively affected the economy? FG had better address our decaying economy rather than this. Postinor 2 does 3 actions: prevents the egg from implanting(being rooted) in the endometrium, increases the movement through the tubes and increases the thickness of the cervical mucus. These measures provide a hostile environment for any foetus to develop. Its only when taken at mid-cycle that it prevents ovulation thereby altering the menstrual cycle. Moreso, Naija ladies, its not meant to be taken everyday. Haba! Take it easy on d pills. St.Nomski says so

hello,i took postinor2 twice in a month and in 3years i av only menstruated 6times.and you say it has nothing to do with hormonal imbalance.i remember taking gynaecosid too its one of the 2 dat has messed up my hormones.i know how much i have spent on tests and scans still no solution.the good thing is boo bought the pills so he is going nowhere.we are in this together.

What happened to good,old condoms? Its over two years I last took a pill and there has never been a pregnancy or semblance of it. My people,condoms r the best protection. Stop deceiving urselves with the notion that flesh to flesh is best. Pls protect ur future by using condoms.

I hv been using postinor for a very long time n I'm yet to suffer any side effects. I use like 2 or 3 in a year. Dis year I hvnt taken any pills cos my bf learnt to do d withdrawal method. Jst last week we were carried away n he poured evrytin inside, since I was safe, bt didn't want to take chances, I askd d pharmacist to gimme a light contraceptive like menstrogen or so, n she gave me rogotinor, I took it n jst yestrday, I started bleeding. Calld her n she said its d side effect. All I'm saying here is, postinor 2 doesn't hv such side effects n jst dis simple drug I took has it. So FG shld do more research n leave postinor 2 alone. D drug wudnt hv been dat popular if it isn't good. Shikena!

The bit that annoys me about the FG doing this is that the rate of illegal abortions in this country is SCARY. When you see a young girl dying from the backdoor 'operation' she had it is sad. Please note that in our great country abortion is ILLEGAL. For some people, this is the only option. Let us be seeing. The government says many things

Really, I have not used Postinor continuously, but even the thrice use in 2 years disrupted my system. It took me a very long time to understand my system again. And even @ that it has never been same with the Pre-Postinor era.

Please FG don't ban postinor 2. It has saved my life in various ways. What can one do to stop the govt. They should face other issues and forget birth control pills.

Men the level of ignorance on the streets on Nigeria is alarming. Obviously a lot of people misuse this drug. Then if the rumour is indeed true, doesn't it stile you guys that pulling it would be based on scientific evidence? And not just a political decision? What kind of mentality demands that they attend to roads before health? Besides there are diff arms of the government. No, Jonathan wouldn't be in charge of such a decision if it was true.
Lastly, ladies stop misusing and use your brains.

I'm thinking the issue of this postinor 2 is too much of everything is bad. Kinda like Benylin, were by some peeps misused it henz the government took action. Abeg, If postinor 2 is bad and will lead to barrenness abi na hormonal imbalance they call it these days. Ban it! I know people who are struggling to have a child and it's not a sight to behold or something you wish on an enemy because the stigma attached to it is much worse than you having a child out of wedlock.

i feel so touched after reading some comments. Now let me share with you all as a Medical doc . Every BCP , especially the "morning after pill " does have side effect. The most common side effect under this group is delayed menstruation . The pill is going to deregulate the normal physiology of menstrual cycle thereby causing oligomenorrhea..
i think the Federel Government should do more awareness on the side effects of BCP. And those who had experiences on how BCP affected their chances of getting pregnant should come out to speak as part of enlightenment.
The simple fact is "For every action there wld be a reaction" HE WHO HAS EARS LET HIM HEAR , God Bless

The outrage following this purported ban simply explains why a lot of people come down with STDs(both diseases & demons) as well as the increased number of ectopic pregnancies as well as the number of people attending fertility clinics!

If u have sex without condoms the chances of having an STD is high.

Chronic STD is the number 1 predisposing factor to ectopic pregnancy & blocked tubes.

The treatment for ectopic most available in 9ja is to cut off the affected tube (if tubal).

So after having sex without condom they resort to Postinor-2 and the likes!
These drugs work by distorting ur hormone levels thereby making the enviroment hostile for both fertilisation and implatation (of the zygote if already formed).
Prolonged distortion of the hormone levels will lead to a more consistent hormone imbalance which can result to infertility!
Pls Pls Pls don't go and buy drugs over the counter in the name of balancing ur hormones when u don't know which one is actually off course! To ascertain that u ll hv to undergo a series of tests @ a particular time in ur cycle!
These tests are quite expensive and worse still relatively few hospitals/Labs offer it!
Ladies is it necessary to pass through all this when you can just abstain from the activity or just insist on condoms!
BTW let's not forget HIV which is all over the place! A lot of big shots go abroad to get their HIV meds, a lot of ladies show up @ far away village hospitals to get thiers!

As for those saying abortions is the alternative, its better to be infertile and live than to have an abortion and die!

Pre-marital sex isn't SoOoOoO important, it isn't a must-doo.

Be wise don't mortgage ur future because of some minutes of "fun", again I say Be wise.
