A medical expert, Dr Umar Musa, on Monday, warned women against indiscriminate use of contraceptives.

Dr Musa, President, Kaduna State Resident Doctors Association gave advice when he spoke with the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Kaduna.

He noted the indiscriminate consumption of contraceptives to ward off unwanted pregnancies and cautioned that while they could forestall unwanted pregnancies, contraceptives were not antidotes for HIV and for other sexually transmitted diseases.

He said there was a particular contraceptive pill in hot demand, but also cautioned that its indiscriminate consumption could delay conception or damage the uterus.

“Too much of this contraceptive will weaken the wall of the womb and damage the uterus which will cause miscarriages in the future.

“There are lots of risks associated with the constant use of this drug. Most ladies consume contraceptives in clinically unsafe ways.

“They use these drugs without knowing the way they interact with the body system and forgetting that people react to drugs in different ways,’’ he said.

Musa also advocated tighter restrictions on the sale of contraceptives and suggested that the use of condoms was an option to stave off unwanted pregnancies and sexually transmitted diseases.

“While a condom may look like a major inconvenience and a fun killer for many, it would protect one from sexually transmitted diseases and prevent pregnancy. (NAN)
