CONTRACEPTIVE PILL RESULTS

Effective treatments delivered

Is the contraceptive pill 100% effective?

The contraceptive pill is 99.7% effective when used perfectly. This rate of success drops slightly when human error is considered (when you miss a dose or take it at a different time each day).

What results can you expect?

As one of the most popular methods of contraception, most women will find a type of birth control pill suitable for their situation.

However, the pill does not protect against sexually transmitted infections (STIs), and the pill isn’t 100% foolproof – pregnancy can still occur. So it is important to use a backup method of contraception if you believe you’ll be at risk.

How effective is the pill?

The birth control pill is a highly effective method of contraception. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the pill is more than 99% effective when used correctly. However, the pill is not perfect, and there is a slight chance of becoming pregnant even when following the instructions correctly.

Several factors can affect the pill’s effectiveness, including vomiting, diarrhoea, certain medications, and missed doses.

It’s important to speak with your medical team if you are concerned about the efficacy of the birth control pill.
