Welcome back to Let’s Talk About Women! In this episode, PhD Student Franziska Weinmar is talking to Dr. Ann-Christin Kimmig about a hot topic: oral contraceptives. We cover the effects on hormone levels, the brain, mood, libido, and socio-emotional functions and what happens if you stop using the pill. Based on state-of-the-art research Ann-Christin and Franziska are trying to navigate and disentangle the importance of oral contraceptives, what has been disregarded in the past, what is known today – and what not. Also, we shed light on “the next big question” for research on oral contraceptives. Timestamps:00:00: Introduction01:16: History & importance of oral contraceptives03:55: (Neuro)biological mechanisms of oral contraceptives12:45: Effects of oral contraceptives on mood & socio-emotional functions25:13: Effects of stopping oral contraceptives32:02: Oral contraceptives & mental health38:20: Ann-Christin's "next big question" for future research42:38: Ann-Christin's wish & advice for women & health practitioners regarding oral contraceptivesSound recording & editing: Center for Media Competence, University of Tübingen. Do you have any feedback, suggestions, or questions?
