Women around the world who are sexually active usually prefer using contraception in order to prevent unplanned pregnancy. Condoms, by far, have been the most commonly used contraceptive method amongst couples. However, contraceptive accidents such as condom slip or tear, leave you vulnerable and at risk of having an unplanned pregnancy. The introduction of hormonal contraceptive methods has been proven to be quite effective in preventing unplanned pregnancy in women. The three hormonal contraceptive methods used by women include the contraceptive pill, contraceptive patch and contraceptive ring. Of these three methods, the oral pills have been proven to be quite popular amongst women.
The oral contraceptive pills used by women consist of artificial female hormones, which help in preventing pregnancy in women. A birth control pill can either be a mini-pill or a combination pill, based on the female hormones present in it. If a pill consists of a single synthetic female hormone, progestogen, it is a mini-pill. On the other hand, if a pill consists of two synthetic female hormones, it is a combination pill. A combination pill, with the help of its two active ingredients, can protect women against pregnancy in three different ways. Contraceptive pills have been proven to be almost 100% effective.
Yasmin pill is the most popular combination pill that is used by women across the globe. This pill consists of ethinylestradiol, synthetic oestrogen, and drospirenone, synthetic progestogen, as its active ingredients. Yasmin has been proven to be almost 100% effective in preventing unplanned pregnancy in women. You are required to take this pill for all 21 days of your 28 day menstrual cycle. You are then to take a break of seven days before starting a new pack. You are most likely to have your periods during these seven days. You can buy Yasmin pill on prescription or online, through any of the registered online clinics.
Qlaira pill is a multiphasic combination pill, and is quite popular amongst women. A multiphasic pill is the one which has multiple dosages of progestogen in the pack. This helps in imitating the natural environment of your womb better and ultimately preventing pregnancy. This pill consists of estradiol valerate, synthetic oestrogen, and dienogest, synthetic progestogen, as its active ingredients. Qlaira pill is the only combination pill which consists of this synthetic oestrogen. This pill has been proven to be almost 100% effective in preventing women from getting pregnant. You are required to take Qlaira pills for all 28 day of your menstrual cycle, without taking any break in between.
One of the other popular combination pills used by women is the Microgynon pill. This pill consists of ethinylestradiol, synthetic oestrogen, and levonorgestrel, synthetic progestogen, as its active ingredients. This pill works in three different ways in order to prevent women from getting pregnant. Firstly, it prevents production of an egg by tricking your body into believing that ovulation has already occurred. Secondly it prevents a sperm from entering and fertilising an egg by thickening the cervical mucus in your womb. And lastly, the Microgynon pill alters the womb lining so as to prevent an egg, produced and fertilised, from attaching and growing further.
