Combined Contraceptive Pill

Combined Contraceptive Pill

The combined contraceptive pill is a very popular form of contraception for women worldwide. The combined contraceptive pill contains synthetic versions of the female sex hormones oestrogen and progestogen. The names of the hormones in combined pills will be different however they all work in the same way.

How does the pill work?

When you take the combined contraceptive pill on a daily basis, it contains hormones, which tricks your body into thinking you have already ovulated. This stops an egg from being fertilized and being released from the ovaries every month.

Hormones will also increase the texture of mucus on the opening of your womb making it harder for sperm to reach an egg, which can result in pregnancy.

How do I take a combined contraceptive pill?

Most brands of combined contraceptive pills are packaged in one of two different packet sizes, with days marked off for a 28-day cycle. For the 21-day pill packet, a pill is consumed daily for three weeks, followed by a week of no pills. For the 28-pill packet, 21 pills are taken, followed by week of placebo or sugar pills. During this time (placebo week) you will experience a menstrual bleed and your hormones in your blood will drop. You must remember to start a new pack after the 7-day break even if you are still bleeding.
