Pills, Patches & Rings Birth control to prevent unintended pregnancies

Doctor and patient

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:

  1. Preventing an egg from being released from the ovaries
  2. 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.
