During the last stage of the menstrual cycle, normally a layer of endometriosis lining on the inside of the uterus is expelled, known as menstruation blood, instead some of the endometriosis tissues grow somewhere in the body to cause endometriosis. Endometriosis also react to hormone signals of the monthly menstrual cycle, by building and breaking up tissues and eliminating them through menstrual period.

                The effects of Oral Contraceptive Pills on Minerals

The oral contraceptive pill is defined as one type of birth control pill containing both estrogen and progesterone that helps to control unwanted pregnancy and reducing symptoms of abdominal pain before, during or after menstrual cycle such as endometriosis, premenstrual symptoms etc.

Normally, women taking the oral contraceptive pill are required to take additional mineral supplements because of it interferences with serum level of minerals.
I. Increase intake of below minerals
1. Zinc(2)(3)
Oral contraceptive pills decrease lower blood levels of zinc and calcium in the women body causing weaken immune system, interfering with the function of reproductive muscles tone and a loss of appetite.

2. Magnesium(6)
Oral contraceptive pills depletes magnesium in the body causing osteoporosis, muscle cramps, weakness, insomnia, anxiety and depression.

3. Calcium(5)
Study shows that women who take oral contraceptive pills when peak bone mass is developing may increase the risk of osteoporosis later in their life. It also shows that women using oral contraceptives and adding calcium in their diet gain significantly more bone mineral density in their hips and spines(4).

II. Reduce intake of below minerals
1. Iron(1)(3)
Since women are on the pill, their menstrual cycle have distorted. The reducing of period blood or no period contributes to less iron loss than other women who have menstruation.

2. Copper(1)(2)
Level of copper increase when women are on the pill causing mood swing, behavior disorder, depression and deficiency of zinc. This type of imbalance may damage to the liver if high levels of copper are allowed to accumulate for a prolong period of time.

3. Potassium(7)
Certain types of oral contraceptive pill may increase level of potassium that contribute to serious heart and health problems, specially for women having pre- existing condition such as kidney, liver or adrenal disease.
