Birth Control Prescription Online

What are hormone pills, patches, and rings used for?

If you are sexually active but do not wish to have a baby, you will need to use contraception. Contraceptive methods such as hormonal pills, patches, and rings. These methods adjust the hormonal balance in your body, thereby preventing or delaying ovulation as a result. While these are more effective than condoms, they do not protect you from sexually transmitted diseases. Therefore, you may wish to use condoms in addition to these as well. You can get a birth control prescription online.

How do they work?

The pills, patches, and rings contain synthetic hormones that control the reproductive system. The hormones, estrogen and/or progesterone, impact the menstrual cycle and, therefore, delay or prevent the release of the egg from the ovaries, which is ovulation. In addition, they form a thick mucus plug at the opening of the cervix which prevents sperm from entering the uterus as well. They also affect the thickness of the uterus lining. Thereby preventing a fertilized egg from attaching to the womb. More information is available in the individual links.

  • The contraceptive patch contains the same hormones as the COC pill but in the form of a patch. This patch is placed on the skin. Click here to learn more about it.
  • The contraceptive vaginal ring, which also contains the same hormones as the COC pill, but in the form of a vaginal ring. Click here to learn more about it.
  • The progesterone-only pill, that contains only one hormone, progestogen. Click here to learn more about it.

How do I choose between them?

In order to choose the best contraception method for yourself, you must weigh the pros and cons of each. If you are looking for contraception for a relatively long period of time, you may consider other reversible options. For example, pills, patches, and rings are effective contraceptive methods. However, they require one to remember to either take the pills every day, change the patch every week or change the ring every 3 weeks. The COC pills, patches and rings cannot be used by women who are at an increased risk of blood clots. Also, women who are breastfeeding cannot use the COC pills, patches, and rings as well. Therefore, these women may want to use the progestin-only pill. However, the POP is considered to be slightly less effective than the COC pill. It also does not lead to very regular periods too.
