CONTRACEPTIVE PILL

What causes a need for oral contraceptives

The pill is the leading choice of hormonal birth control to prevent unplanned pregnancy, but is also used by women to regulate other menstrual conditions.

By working with a medical team who specialise in women’s health, you can find the best birth control to prevent pregnancy and treat other health issues.

Regulating the menstrual cycle with the pill

The pill helps to regulate the menstrual cycle by suppressing ovulation. When a woman takes the pill, her body is tricked into thinking it is already pregnant, which stops the release of an egg each month and prevents ovulation. Without ovulation, the uterine lining does not thicken, and a woman cannot have a period. The pill may also make periods lighter and less painful for some women.

Acne

Treating acne with the pill

The pill is a common treatment for acne as it helps to regulate the hormones in the body, which can often cause acne.

It also reduces the production of sebum, the oily substance that clogs pores and leads to breakouts, and reduces inflammation and bacteria.

The pill is most effective when combined with other acne treatments, such as topical creams or antibiotics.

Easing period pain with the pill

There are a few different ways that the pill can ease period pain.

First, the pill can help regulate hormone levels, reducing the pain experienced during a period.

The pill can help to thin the uterus lining, reducing period pain.

Furthermore, the pill can also help reduce inflammation and muscle spasms, which significantly contribute to period pain.

Managing symptoms of PCOS with the pill

The pill is a common treatment for polycystic ovary syndrome (PCOS). As the pill works by regulating hormones, it can help to alleviate symptoms like irregular periods, excess hair growth, and acne.

Treatment for PCOS will vary depending on an individual’s symptoms. In most cases, the pill is not a cure for PCOS but a complementary treatment to use in combination with other treatments.

Managing symptoms of endometriosis with the pill

Endometriosis is a chronic condition that affects millions of women worldwide. The main symptom of endometriosis is pelvic pain, which can range from mild to severe. Unfortunately, there is no cure for endometriosis, but there are treatments that can help manage the symptoms, including the birth control pill.

The pill works by suppressing the ovaries, which reduces the amount of estrogen in the body. This helps to reduce the amount of endometrial tissue that grows outside the uterus.
