About the Contraceptive Pill

The contraceptive pill can be very effective as a prevention method against pregnancy. Let’s take a look at what the pill is and how it can work for you.

Contraceptive pills are often simply referred to as ‘the pill’. It usually contains two hormones, which help to prevent a pregnancy. It contains progestogen and oestrogen and acts as a contraceptive.

It prevents your body from producing an egg, and causes the cervix to thicken. This all makes it very difficult for an egg to attach to the uterus, or for a sperm cell to get to the uterus.

The pill is very effective and used by millions of people around the world. Less than 1% of women using the contraceptive pill becomes pregnant, making it very reliable. It’s important to never skip a pill and not change to other pills unless prescribed by your doctor.

There are many advantages to using a contraceptive pill. It’s effect does not interfere with your sexual activities and you still have your periods on a regular basis. It can improve skin conditions in some women and reduces the risk of developing certain cancers.

For most women, there are no side effects when taking the pill.

But a small number of women may feel sick or get headaches when they take contraceptive pills. This can go away in a few days and if it doesn’t, there are many other pills that they can try to see if they work.
