A panel of analysts from Stanford Medical School in the US have discovered in a new study concerning facts. It says that women who use hormonal contraceptive pills or patches are at more risk of sexually transmitted diseases.
The team has been warning that such women are also at higher risks for pregnancy complications. The reason behind the same is that they stop using condoms while on these contraceptives, which also include rings and shots.
It is being said that while they avoid condoms during they take drugs, it is also likely that they resume not using the same when they stop taking pills. Testing nearly 1,200 sexual active women of ages 15 to 24 years who visited Planned Parenthood clinics, the team found that condoms were a must together with contraception, in case STDs are to be prevented or pregnancy needs to be protected.
All these women used hormonal contraception and while 36% at first used condoms, the rate dropped to 27% after three months. Also, when contraceptives were stopped, more than half did not use condoms later.
"It appears that her partner's feelings may be more important than her perceived risk of a sexually transmitted infection or her own beliefs about dual method use", says Dr. Rachel Goldstein, lead researcher.
