Birth Control

The Pill: Also known as oral contraceptive.

The pill comes in progestin only or combinations of progestin & estrogen. The pill contains powerful steroids.

How does it work?

  • It can prevent ovulation
  • It can cause the mucus in the cervix to change so that if sperm reach the cervix, it is more difficult for them to enter.
  • It can irritate the lining of the uterus so that if the first two actions fail, the baby will die before he or she can actually attach to the lining of the uterus. This is called a “Chemical Abortion.”

  • Cervical Cancer
  • Breast Cancer
  • Blood Clots
  • Stroke
  • Weight Gain
  • No protection from STD’s (sexually transmitted disease)
