affect their mood you still down for this women who take the P. hill the hill the birth control pill each day have a key brain region which is smaller it shrinks that's what the experts have found for the very first time this was discovered no we've known for a long time about birth control pills and how they can cause an increased risk of gallbladder problems in women how they can cause weight gain in women how they can increase the risk of blood clots in women that that's well known but to shrink the brain with birth control pills the hypothalamus is crucial for the normal production of hormones and plays a very important role in mood in appetite sex drive and even sleep well researchers at monta fori Medical Center in New York City scanned the brains of women who are on birth control pills and not to make the conclusion they saw a dramatic difference in the size of this part of the brain called the hypothalamus in women who took birth control pills other preliminary evidence from the same team found a link between the smaller size and anger and depressive symptoms so look if you have a wife or a girlfriend or a sister or a mother or somebody you know who's on
