Answer preview

The risks of contraceptives are health issues such as stroke, liver tumors, and blood clots. Also, it is linked to high risks of breast cancer and heart attack. The side effects of contraceptives include increased weight, vaginal infection, nausea, and dizziness. Other side effects are abdominal pain, irregular bleeding, headaches, and changes in appetite.

  1. Bioethical analysis and unfair dynamics of artificial contraception.

The bioethical analysis of contraceptives is that some are considered to be abortifacients. For example, the use of oral contraceptive pills and intrauterine devices is regarded to be an abortifacient. They hinder the development of an embryo in situations whereby a breakthrough pregnancy occurs.
