Hormone Phases in Birth Control

Oral contraceptives rely on hormone doses or combinations of hormones in order to suppress the natural ovulation cycle, which can lead to pregnancy. When you use a pill that utilizes a combination of hormones, there are several different ratios that can be utilized to help you prevent pregnancy.

When you take oral birth control, you are working to protect yourself from an unwanted pregnancy. This is necessary for you to feel in control of your life, and it can help protect you from ovarian cancer and other problems. However, some oral contraceptives are associated with dangerous side effects such as heart attack and stroke. If you have suffered from any of these problems after taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, you should contact a YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher today at 800-761-3187.

Hormone Ratios

Oral contraceptives contain either progestin or a combination of progestin and estrogen. The combination hormones interfere with egg development and the formation of the uterine lining. Progestin alone thickens the mucus at the cervical opening, which helps deny entry to sperm. If you take the combination pills, they can be formed in several different ratios that are divided into three categories:

  • Monophasic – the same amount of estrogen and progestin in each pill
  • Biphasic – the estrogen is the same throughout the cycle, but the progestin is higher at first and then lower during the second half to allow for menstrual bleeding
  • Triphasic – both estrogen and progestin levels change throughout the course of the pills

All three of these methods have been shown to prevent pregnancy. Thus, it is instead important to choose a birth control based on the way that it affects your body.

Although all medications, including birth control, come with the potential for side effects, some are worse than others. YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella are three oral contraceptives that have been linked to pulmonary embolism and deep-vein thrombosis. If one of these drugs has harmed you, you may be entitled to financial compensation for your pain and suffering. To discuss your case, contact a YAZ lawyer from Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today.
