What is Birth Control?

An oral contraceptive is a birth control pill taken by mouth, containing both estrogen and progesterone. The pill, if taken correctly (see directions of pill for more info), will prevent the ovary from releasing an egg for fertilization, or even simpler prevent pregnancy from occurring. The effectiveness of the pill is approximately 91% if taken correctly everyday. Some advantages that come along with taking the pill are that it makes a period shorter, lighter, and more regular. Another advantage is that is can decrease the risk of cancer of the ovaries and uterus.

The effectiveness of the pill is approximately 91% if taken correctly everyday.

Under recent changes of the Affordable Care Act’s exceptions to no-cost contraceptive coverage, it allows the guidelines to bend and change to employers and insurers discursion. Employers and insurance can now cover or refuse to cover based on religious or moral beliefs and require members to pay out of pocket.
