Long-term health risks and benefits of oral contraceptive use.
Obstet Gynecol Clin North Am. 1990 Dec; 17(4):775-88.OG

Abstract

The contraceptive effect of oral contraceptive use provides an important health benefit, particularly in developing countries, where the risks of pregnancy and childbearing are increased. Several important noncontraceptive health benefits of oral contraceptive use include the prevention of endometrial and ovarian cancers. Data are generally reassuring concerning the risks of oral contraceptive use, which include cardiovascular disease and breast and cervical cancer.
