Otherwise called combined oral contraceptive pill, COCP is a type of birth control pill designed to take orally by women. It contains a combination of estrogen and progestogen and prevents ovulation in women.

It also thins the lining of the uterus and causes difficulty in the implantation of a fertilized egg.
