Birth Control Pills

Birth control pills are a form of hormonal contraception, which is the most effective method of preventing pregnancy when taken correctly. However, it does not protect against sexually transmitted infections. The synthetic estrogen and progestin hormones inhibit the natural hormones. It avoids pregnancy by stopping ovulation, altering the cervical mucus making it difficult for the mobility of sperm, and modifying the uterine lining, thereby preventing implantation.
