Los Angeles, Calif., May 15, 2015 / 03:06 am (CNA/EWTN News).- Adding to recent controversies surrounding various forms of birth control, a new study out of UCLA suggests that the birth control pill may thin areas in a woman’s brain and affect their function.

Published in April in the journal “Human Brain Mapping,” the study measured cortical thickness in the brains of 90 women – 44 of whom were using oral contraceptives, and 46 of whom were naturally cycling.

Only women using the combination form of oral contraceptives were used in the study – it did not measure women using progesterone-only or other forms of oral contraceptives. The research found that oral contraceptive use was significantly associated with a thinning in two areas of the brain: the lateral orbitofrontal cortex and the posterior cingulate cortex.
