Birth control pills continues to be the most popular and one of the most effective forms of reversible birth control ever invented. Billions of women across the globe rely on these birth control pills, also called oral contraceptives, as their birth control method. Also, birth control pills now have fewer side effects because they have been changed to include less harmone. According to experts, all healthy women who don't smoke may use birth control pills, regardless of their age.
Birth control pills are actually a synthetic form of the hormones progesterone and estrogen. Birth control pills works by preventing ovulation by maintaining more consistent hormone levels. The ovary doesn't get the signal to release an egg because there is no peak in estrogen. No egg means no possibility for fertilization and pregnancy. Birth control pills also thicken cervical mucus so the sperm cannot reach the egg, and make the lining of the uterus unreceptive to the implantation of a fertilized egg.
There are three common types of birth control pills - Progestin-only pills (POP), combination pills and emergency contraceptive pills (ECP).
Progestin-only pills (POP) contains no estrogen. Known as progestin-only pill, or "mini-pill," it's ideal for breastfeeding women. Also ideal for women who cannot take estrogen. Combination pills contains a combination of estrogen and progestin hormones while emergency contraceptive pills (ECP) are not intended to be used regularly as a contraceptive. They are designed to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sex (when standard contraceptives fail or no method was used).
