Birth control pills have become the most popular form of contraceptive method amongst women. They can either be combination pills or mini-pills. Read further to learn more about the pills.


Daily contraceptive methods are very popular amongst women in today’s society for preventing pregnancy. Until recently,Guest Posting condoms were the most popular contraceptive method used for preventing pregnancy. However, this did not give complete control to women where their sex lives were concerned. With the introduction of hormonal contraceptive methods, women have gained more freedom in living their sex life. The three popular hormonal contraceptive methods are oral contraceptive methods, contraceptive patches and contraceptive rings. The oral contraceptive pills have become the most popular of all the three methods. However, the other two methods are gaining popularity at a fast pace as well.

These oral contraceptives are required to be taken on a daily basis and at the same time as the previous dosage. A contraceptive pill consists of synthetic female hormones, which help to prevent pregnancy in women. These hormones alter the natural environment of your womb, which leads to prevention of pregnancy. A contraceptive pill is separated into different categories based on the synthetic hormones present in them. A contraceptive pill can be a combination pill, which consists of two synthetic female hormones, oestrogen and progestogen. It is often referred to as ‘the pill’. A combination pill can protect you against pregnancy in three different ways.

A combination pill is further separated into the categories of monophasic pill, biphasic pill, triphasic pill and multiphasic pill. This separation is carried out on the basis of dosages you are required to take throughout your menstrual cycle. A monophasic pill is a pill which consists of consistent dosages of both oestrogen and progestogen to be taken throughout. A biphasic pill consists of similar dosages of oestrogen, while the dosage of progestogen changes during your menstrual cycle. A triphasic pill is a pill which again has similar dosages of oestrogen but different dosages of progestogen that you are required to take.

One of the popular triphasic pills is TriNovum. This pill consists of ethinylestradiol, synthetic oestrogen, and norethisterone, synthetic progestogen, as its active ingredients. You are required to take this pill for 21 days of your 28 day menstrual cycle. Another form of combination pill, the multiphasic pill is a pill which consists of the same dosages of oestrogen but multiple dosages of progestogen. A classic example of a multiphasic contraceptive pill is Qlaira. The different dosages of the pill are distinguished by different coloured pills. The different progestogen dosages basically help in imitating your natural cycle, which proves to be more effective in preventing pregnancy.

The other category into which a contraceptive pill is separated into is the mini-pill. This pill consists of only one synthetic female hormone, progestogen. As a result, it is often referred to as ‘the progestogen only pill’. This pill can help prevent pregnancy in two different ways. Firstly, it thickens the cervical mucus in your womb, which prevents the entry of a sperm. It thus prevents fertilising of an egg if produced. Secondly, a mini-pill alters the womb lining so that an egg, if produced and fertilised, cannot attach itself with the womb and grow further. Cerazette and Femulen are popular mini-pills used by women.
