Birth control pills come in a pack, and you take 1 pill every day. The pill is safe, affordable, and effective if you always take your pill on time. Besides preventing pregnancy, the pill can reduce acne, ease menstrual cramps, and lighten or skip your period.
There are two kinds of birth control pills:
The birth control ring is a safe and convenient birth control method that works really well if you always use it correctly. You wear a small, flexible ring inside your vagina, and it prevents pregnancy by releasing hormones into your body. The ring has lots of other health benefits, too.
Emergency Contraception is a single dose medication that is used in case of contraceptive failure (e.g. the condom breaks, you miss 3 days of the birth control pill, patch, or ring in a row, or don’t get a Depo-Provera shot on time). You should take it ASAP (within a 5 day window) to effectively prevent an egg from being released and/or fertilized, or implanted in the uterus.
