Hormonal contraception is a popular method of birth control. It comes as a pill, patch, ring, injection and intrauterine device. The products work by two mechanisms, including:
- Preventing an egg from being released from the ovaries
- Changing the mucus in the cervix to make it harder for sperm to reach the eggs
They work really well and are a safe way to prevent unintended pregnancies.
