F. Naz, S. Jyoti, N. Akhtar, M. Afzal and Y.H. Siddique

Abstract:
Oral Contraceptives (OCs) are the most popular type of birth control pills. The study was designed to examine the biochemical changes which occur due to the use of oral contraceptive pills (OCs). The study was based on the questionnaire for having the information of any reproductive history fasting, age, health, nature of menstrual cycle, bleeding, disease etc and blood profiling for biochemical analysis of the women includes High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C), Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), Total Cholesterol (TC) and Triglycerides (TG). Lipid profiling was carried out by using a commercially available diagnostic test kits. SPSS was used to analyze the data. The results showed statistically significant differences among users of OCs compared to non-users. Total cholesterol (242.92±2.842 mg dL-1), HDL-C (58.65±1.098 mg dL-1), LDL-C (115.84±1.266 mg dL-1) and triglycerides (105.56±2.341 mg dL-1) were significantly higher compared to the Non-users (Total cholesterol 218.49±1.762, HDL-C 48.17±0.543, LDL-C 100.32±0.951 and triglycerides 83.77±2.299 mg dL-1). The result suggests that OCs increase the level of High Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (HDL-C), Low Density Lipoprotein Cholesterol (LDL-C), Total Cholesterol (TC) and Triglycerides (TG).
