♀ Patient - Contraceptive Pill and Patch

Contraception

What is the Contraceptive Pill?
The combined contraceptive pill or ‘the pill’ is a type of medication that prevents against pregnancy. It can be used to treat heavy periods, painful periods, PMS or premenstrual syndrome, and endometriosis. It can also improve acne. A woman gets pregnant when a man’s sperm meets one of her eggs.

To prevent pregnancy, the pill keeps the sperm and egg apart, by stopping ovulation, by making it harder for sperm to get to an egg and by making it harder for a fertilised egg to implant in the lining of the womb. The combined pill contains synthetic versions of the female sex hormones oestrogen and progesterone.
