The pill has been around for about 50 years and is still a very popular choice for birth control, with around 3.5 million Women using the pill today.
The contraceptive pill is a tablet that contains two hormones. These hormones stop you from ovulating each month meaning there is no egg to be fertilized. It also makes the lining of your womb thin making it more difficult for an egg to attach its self should one be released and fertilized.
If you decide to take the contraceptive pill, you will be given a pack of 21 pills to take every day (for 3 weeks). Then you will have a break for a week, during this time you will have your period. After the weeks break you resume taking a new pack of contraceptive pills. The contraceptive pill will make your periods shorter, lighter and can reduce your normal period pain.
The following can make the contraceptive pill less effective:
Taking certain medicines.
Forgetting to take your pill for a period of time.
If you are prescribed any medicines while taking the contraceptive pill, its wise to ask your GP if it will have any effect on the pill. Its always a good idea to take extra precautions such as using a condom while on any medication and the pill.
How Effective is the pill?
The pill is a very successful method for birth control and for that reason is used by millions of women. Its effectiveness is almost 100 percent meaning if 100 women were taking the contraceptive pill for a whole year, its likely none would fall pregnant.
• Breast tenderness
• Slight weight gain
• Slight ‘spotting’ of blood between the periods.

More serious side effects include:
DVT (Deep vein thrombosis)
