There are many forms of contraception, which include:

The combined contraceptive pill (“the pill”), contains synthetic versions of the female hormones oestrogen and progesterone, which women produce naturally in their ovaries. The pill is usually taken to prevent pregnancy, but it can also treat:

  • Painful periods
  • Heavy periods
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Endometriosis

This pill doesn’t contain any oestrogen. It is an option for women who can’t use the combined contraceptive pill.

Contraceptive implants and injections are long-acting, effective, reversible, and progestogen-only methods of contraception.
