What are Contraceptive Pills?

They are a kind of medicine with hormones that you take every day to prevent pregnancy. There are many different brands of pills. The pill is safe, affordable, and effective if you always take it on time. Besides preventing pregnancy, the pill has lots of other health benefits, too.

How do Contraceptive Pills Prevent Pregnancy?

Birth control pills work by stopping sperm from meeting an egg (which is called fertilization). The hormones in the pill stop ovulation. No ovulation means there’s no egg hanging around for sperm to fertilize, so pregnancy can’t happen. The pill’s hormones also thicken the mucus on the cervix. Thicker cervical mucus makes it hard for the sperm to swim to an egg — kind of like a sticky security guard.

The combined oral contraceptive pill is usually just called "the pill". It contains artificial versions of female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries. A woman can get pregnant if a man's sperm reaches one of her eggs (ova). Contraception tries to stop this happening usually by keeping the egg and sperm apart or by stopping the release of an egg (ovulation).

When taken correctly, the pill is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. This means that fewer than one woman in 100 who use the combined pill as contraception will get pregnant in one year. Other methods, such as the IUD, implant and injection, are more effective.

Combined Pills

Combined pills contain synthetic versions of the hormones progesterone and oestrogen. They stop ovulation and prevent the fertilisation of the egg by the sperm.

Low Dose Pills

The low dose pill is just like the combined pill, but with less oestrogen. They can often be tried if regular contraceptive pills cause unwanted side effects.

Mini Pills

The mini pill (also known as the Progesterone-Only Pill) contains just progesterone which acts as contraception by stopping fertilisation. It is generally used when oestrogen is not suitable.
