Transcript of Birth-Control Pills

By: Crystal B.

Giovanni P. The Birth-Control Pill. What is it? The Birth-Control Pill is a kind of medication
that women can take daily to prevent pregnancy.
They are sometimes called "the pill" or oral contraception. They are made up of hormones. Some even contain two hormones: estrogen and progestin. They are called combination pills. How do the hormones work? Are they effective? Birth-Control pills are very effective. Combination pills work best when taken every day. Progestin-only pills must be taken at the same time every day. That keeps the correct level of hormone in a woman's body. How much does it cost? If a woman takes an exam the cost will be about $35-$250, but if taken with a prescription from a drug store the cost will be about $15-$50 a month. Is it user friendly? Just FYI. Less than 1 out of 100 women will get pregnant each year.
If they always take the pill each day as directed. About 9 out of 100 women will get pregnant every other year, if they don't always take the pill as directed. Disadvantages. Some disadvantages can be bleeding between periods, breast tenderness, and vomiting. The hormones in the pill work by, keeping eggs from leaving the ovaries, making cervical mucus thicker; this keeps sperm from getting to the eggs. It is simple, safe, and convenient. Also it doesn't interfere with having sex. The combination pill offers many other benefits, including some protection against:
bone thinning
ectopic pregnancy(fetus develops outside the uterus)
endomentrial & ovarian cancers
heavy and/or irregular periods
