What are Oral contraceptive pills?

  • Oral contraceptive pills are birth control pills taken by mouth.
  • When used correctly, as per the instructions, these pills are proven to be effective in birth control.
  • It is always better to consult your gynecologist before using any such pills.

How Are Oral Contraceptive Pills Effective?

  • The hormonal contraceptive pills contain Oestrogen and Progestin hormones.
  • These work by inhibiting the body's natural cycle of hormone generation, thereby drastically reducing the chances of pregnancy.
  • The hormonal contraceptive stops the egg from ovulating. If there is no production of the egg cell, there is absolutely no chance of pregnancy
  • These pills also make changes in cervical mucus, thereby making it difficult for the sperm to travel through the uterus
  • Also, the lining of the uterus is modified; hence, even if the egg and sperm somehow fertilize, it is impossible for it to get implanted in the walls of the uterus

Hormonal contraceptive pills are 99.9% effective, with a very rare case of the sperm finding a way to fertilize and then get implanted in the uterus wall
