The oral contraceptive pill revolutionised contraception, giving women the ability to take control of their reproductive life and providing almost complete protection against pregnancy. As well as providing contraception, the oral contraceptive pill can also assist in treating conditions associated with the menstrual cycle such as heavy or painful periods, acne, pre-menstrual tension (PMT), or endometriosis which can cause cramps and is also linked to infertility. The oral contraceptive pill is now readily available and it is possible to buy the birth control pill online.
The oral contraceptive pill is the most common contraceptive prescribed to women across the world. In the UK, some three and a half million women take the contraceptive pill and it is now available in more than 30 varieties in the UK. Many women choose what is popularly known as the 'mini pill'.
The oral contraceptive pill is the most effective contraceptive method, successfully preventing pregnancy in more cases than the intrauterine device (or IUD, or 'coil'), condoms, the diaphragm (cap), or the vaginal ring ('femidom').

The oral contraceptive pill is known as the combined oral contraceptive pill because it contains a combination of synthetic oestrogen and progestogen, two hormones that a woman's body produces naturally.
The oral contraceptive pill prevents pregnancy in three main ways by manipulating the levels of these hormones. First, the hormones prevent her from ovulating (producing an egg). This means that sex cannot lead to pregnancy because there is no egg for her partner's sperm to fertilise. Second, the hormones make it harder for any egg to embed itself in the lining of the womb by altering its structure. The hormones also make it difficult for sperm to come into contact with any egg by thickening the mucus which coats the cervix.
Because it works in these three ways, the combined oral contraceptive pill is very effective, with tests showing that when taken correctly, it is almost 100% effective. As well as acting as a contraceptive, the oral contraceptive pill also has other benefits. For instance, it can help to minimise the symptoms of pre-menstrual tension, making periods lighter and more regular. It also offers some protection against ovarian, colon and womb cancer (reducing the risk by up to 35%), and protects against ovarian cysts, fibroids, breast disease and pelvic inflammatory disease.
The so-called mini contraceptive pill contains only one of the two hormones that the combined oral contraceptive pill contains – progestogen. It is prescribed to some women because it has fewer side effects. It is often prescribed to women over the age of 35, women who find that the combined pill leads to high blood pressure, diabetic women, smokers, and women who are breastfeeding or who are sensitive to oestrogen. Despite having only one of the active ingredients that the combined contraceptive pill contains, the progestogen-only pill (or POP) is still a highly effective method of contraception, cutting the chance of conception by 99% when taken correctly. Unlike the combined contraceptive pill, the POP is taken every day without any break.
The POP also differs from the combined contraceptive pill in that it does not control the menstrual cycle. It nonetheless acts in the same three principal ways that the combined pill does.
