Order Birth Control Meds Online
The birth control meds is a daily pill that contains the hormones estrogen and progesterone that prevent pregnancy (also called the Pill).
How they Work?
Most birth control meds contain the combination of the hormones estrogen and progesterone to prevent ovulation (the release of an egg during the monthly cycle). If a woman doesn't ovulate she cannot get pregnant because there is no egg to be fertilized.
One type of birth control meds, known as the Minipill, contains only the hormone progesterone. Although progesterone alone may prevent ovulation, this may not occur reliably every month. The Minipill also works by thickening the mucous around the cervix, which prevents the sperm from entering the uterus. It also affects the lining of the uterus so if the egg is fertilized it cannot attach to the wall of the uterus.
The combination pills comes in either a 21-day pack or a 28-day pack. One hormone pill is taken each day at about the same time for 21 days. Depending on your pack, you will stop taking pills for 7 days or you will take a reminder pill (that contains no hormones) for 7 days. A woman has her period when she stops taking the pills with hormones. Some women prefer the 28-day pack because it helps them stay in the habit of taking a pill every day.
The Pill works best when it is taken every single day at the same time of day, regardless of whether you are going to have sex. This is especially important with progesterone-only pills. You should not take a friend's or sister's pills. If pills are skipped or forgotten, you are not protected against pregnancy and backup birth control, such as condoms, must be used.
How well the pills work?
Over the course of one year about five out of 100 typical couples who rely on the Pill to prevent pregnancy will have an accidental pregnancy. Of course, this is an average figure and the chance of getting pregnant depends on whether you take your birth control meds every day. The Pill is an effective form of birth control, but even missing 1 day increases the chance of getting pregnant.
In general, how well each type of birth control method works depends on a lot of things. These include whether a person has any health conditions or is taking any Medss that might interfere with its use. It also depends on whether the method chosen is convenient - and whether the person remembers to use it correctly all the time.
Protection Against Stds?
The birth control meds does not protect against sexually transmitted diseases (Stds). For those having sex, condoms must always be used along with birth control meds to protect against Stds.
Possible birth control meds Side Effects
The birth control meds is a safe and effective method of birth control. Most young women who take the Pill have no side effects. The side effects that some women have while on the Pill include:
irregular menstrual bleeding
nausea, weight gain, headaches, dizziness, and breast tenderness
blood clots (rare in women under 35 who do not smoke)
Some of these side effects improve over the first 3 months on the Pill. Sometimes a doctor will prescribe a different brand of pill, which may work better with your body and have fewer side effects.
The Pill also has some side effects that most young women are happy about. It usually makes periods much lighter, reduces cramps, and is often prescribed for women who have menstrual problems. Taking the Pill often improves acne, and some doctors prescribe it for this purpose. birth control meds have also been found to protect against some forms of breast disease, anemia, ovarian cysts, and uterine cancer.
Who Uses the Pills for Birth Control??
Young women who can remember to take a pill each day and who want excellent protection from pregnancy use birth control meds.
Not all women can - or should - use the birth control pill. In some cases, medical or other conditions make the use of the Pill less effective or more risky. For example, it is not recommended for women who have had blood clots, high blood pressure, certain types of cancers, certain types of migraine headaches, or uncontrolled diabetes. It's recommended that girls who have had unexplained vaginal bleeding (bleeding that is not during their periods) or who suspect they may be pregnant should talk to their doctor.
Girls who are interested in learning more about different types of birth control, including the Pill, should talk to their doctor or other health professional.
Cigarette smoking increases the risk of serious side effects from oral contraceptives, including heart attacks, blood clots, and strokes. This risk is higher for women over 35 years old and heavy smokers (15 or more cigarettes per day). If you take oral contraceptives, you should not smoke.
