The Birth Control Pill as a Type of Contraception

People who are sexually active from a young age and even married couples know the importance of using a safe contraception method. For a long time now, women have trusted hormonal contraception in order to prevent pregnancy. The hormonal contraceptive methods help you give a better control over unplanned pregnancy. The recent studies indicate that oral contraceptive pills are gaining popularity at a fast pace because of the ease and convenience which they offer.

The oral contraceptive pills contain artificial female hormones called progestogen and oestrogen. These hormones occur naturally in the female body which play a major role in your reproductive cycle. When these artificial female hormones are supplied in the body, they interfere in the reproductive cycle in such a way that it prevents a woman from being pregnant. The contraceptive pills are either combination pills or mini-pills. The combination pill consists of both the female hormones, while the mini-pills are composed of only one hormone, progestogen. The mini-pills are also referred to as ‘progestogen only pill’.

Cerazette is a mini-pill which has proved to be almost 99% effective in preventing pregnancy. The main ingredient of this pill is desogestrel, synthetic progestogen, which helps in preventing ovulation so that no egg is released from the ovaries. It also thickens the cervical mucus which makes the entry of a sperm into the womb difficult, and alters the womb lining thus stopping an egg from attaching itself and growing. Since Cerazette does not contain oestrogen, it is highly suitable for women who cannot tolerate the effects of oestrogen or are breastfeeding.

Yasmin is a combination pill which comprises ethinylestradiol, synthetic oestrogen, and drospirenone, artificial progestogen. It can prevent pregnancy in three ways. Firstly, it makes your body to believe that ovulation has already occurred. Secondly, it makes the cervical mucus viscous so that a sperm is unable to penetrate the womb easily. If in case, an egg is released or fertilised then finally the womb lining is also altered due to which an egg is unable to attach itself and grow. Yasmin is highly popular as it reduces the water retention in your body and also the risk of weight gain.
