News “ A study recently presented to the Radiological Society of North America (RSNA) suggests that taking contraceptive pills may shrink a woman’s brain size.

The study looked at MRI scans of 50 healthy women, 21 of whom were taking oral contraceptive pills, and found that “women taking birth control pills had significantly smaller hypothalamus volume.” The hypothalamus helps to regulate key bodily functions such as the appetite, heart rate, body temperature, and emotions. ”
