Oral Contraceptives

oral contraceptives contain a combination of 2 types of hormones: estrogen and a progestin. Both of these hormones are naturally found in women’s bodies. There are several different types of estrogens and progestins, and different types of pills have different combinations, but they all work similarly. Some pills contain only progestin, sometimes called the “mini-pill.” The most important requirement for women taking oral contraceptives is that they must remember to take them every day at approximately the same time of day. Oral contraceptives are not a good form of birth control when doses are missed often. Combination oral contraceptives should not be given to women older than 35 years who also smoke since there is an increased risk of blood clots in these women.
