This matura paper is written by Gloria Sipusic and was supervised by Fiona Straehl. It is about the birth control pill and its individual effects on different woman. The information used comes mostly of the self-conducted survey and the interviews with two gynaecologists. The first hypothesis: 'A lot of women do take the pill not only because of contraceptive reasons, but also because of its simple application and the benefits that come with it. (better skin, alleviation of menstrual pain, etc.) 'could have been disproved with the fact that most of the questioned women do only take the birth control pill for contraceptional reasons. The second thesis: 'Gynaecologist do not clarify their patients enough about the side-effects of the pill.' Could have been partly verified. 29% of the respondents were not been informed about the possible side-effects at all. Also, only three of 28 women knew of which generation their pill comes from, which provides the answer to the 3rd thesis: 'Most women who intake the pill, are not aware of what kind of birth control pill they use and if there is a better alternative for them.' The last thesis is: 'There is no perfect method of contraception that suits all women.' This could have been answered with the data of the survey. Every woman can experience different side-effects and is satisfied to varying degrees with the birth control pill. This applies to all available birth controls and every woman has to find the right form of contraception for herself.
