wow... that is interesting. i wonder if i never would have gotten lupus if i never took birth control...

i am going to warn my girl friends now. and tell them that if they have relatives with autoimmune diseases, they might want to consider stopping the pill...

I was on the pill for ten years no problem. Then there was some scare and a pill was taken off the market.I was put on a new one.I told the Doctor i was scared of staying on the pill due to blood clots.He laughed at me and i stayed on it.A week later i had a pulmonary Embolism. I now can not have the normal pill with all the hormones in. I think, after being treated with cream for my shoulder, when it was a P.E i was experiencing, this was when i first questioned my faith in Doctors. All the symptoms were there, yet through this Doctors god complex, he nearly killed me. Idiots some of them are!

the article isn't saying BC is the only cause of lupus. it is saying if you are genetically predisposed to lupus, BC might increase your chances of developing it.
