The combined oral contraceptive pill contains artificial versions of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone.

Women produce these hormones naturally in their ovaries. The hormones in the pill prevent your ovaries from releasing an egg (ovulating). They also make it difficult for sperm to reach an egg, or for an egg to implant itself in the lining of the womb. The pill is usually taken to prevent pregnancy, but can also be used to treat painful periods, heavy periods, premenstrual syndrome (PMS) and endometriosis.

Combined oral contraceptive pills (COCs) contain a combination of synthetic estrogens and progestins. These are given to interfere with ovulation. Use of COC pills is not recommended for women 35 years old and above, or for any woman who have high blood pressure or smoke tobacco. A history of blood clots or a history of breast, liver, or endometrial cancer are also a reason not to be prescribed this type of contraception.

Progestin-only pills may interfere with ovulation or with sperm function. POPs thicken cervical mucus, making it difficult for sperm to swim into the uterus or to enter the fallopian tube. These hormones do not appear to be associated with an increased risk of blood clots and are ideal for women breast feeding or who smoke tobacco.
