Oral contraceptives and IUDs
Most oral contraceptives, commonly called “the pill,” contain two types of hormones identical to those produced by women, i.e. estrogen and progesterone, which are involved in the female menstrual cycle. Different brands of bills contain varying amounts of estrogen and progesterone. The pill is prescribed by a physician for pregnancy prevention.
An IUD (intra-uterine device) is a device inserted into the uterus that forms an excellent means of contraception. It can also be prescribed to reduce heavy bleeding during your period.
