Types of Hormonal Contraceptives

Because ovulation and the menstrual cycle depend on the release of hormones in your body, you can prevent pregnancy by altering your body’s hormone levels. Although combination birth control pills are the most popular form of hormonal contraception, there are several other options available for women who do not wish to take this pill every day.

In fact, some combination pills can actually have several dangerous side effects. YAZ, Yasmin, and Ocella are three combination birth control pills that have been linked to problems like blood clots and heart attacks. If you have suffered an adverse health complication due to taking YAZ, Yasmin, or Ocella, please contact an experienced YAZ lawsuit attorney from Williams Kherkher at 800-761-3187 today.

Hormonal Contraception Options

If you are sexually active or preparing to become sexually active, hormonal contraceptives are popular options. These methods can be very effective if used correctly. Some common hormone-based contraception methods include:

  • Combination pill – uses a combination of synthetic estrogen and progestin to prevent ovulation
  • Mini-pill – a progestin-only pill that is safer for nursing mothers
  • Vaginal rings – rings placed in the vagina that release synthetic estrogen and progestin
  • Implants – devices placed in your arm that release synthetic progestin
  • Patch – a progestin- and estrogen-releasing skin patch for hormone absorption through your skin
  • Shot – a dose of progestin lasting three months that is inserted into your body like a regular shot or vaccine

It is important to talk to your doctor about the best method of hormonal pregnancy prevention for you. Sometimes, there are different brands of products for each of these options.
