The contraceptive pill is also known as the oral contraceptive pill, or “the pill”. It is a safe method of preventing pregnancy. If you take your pill at the same time each day, it is very reliable.
The pill contains a tiny amount of hormones that are released into your body to stop you from getting pregnant.
There are two different types:
The combined pill is simply known as “the pill”. It contains two types of hormones – oestrogen and progestogen.
The progestogen-only pill is commonly referred to as “the mini pill”. It only contains progestogen.
