This is what birth control does The birth control pill (also called "the Pill") is a daily pill that contains the hormones estrogen and progesterone that prevent pregnancy. Most birth control pills are "combination pills" containing a combination of the hormones estrogen and progesterone to prevent ovulation. A woman cannot get pregnant if she doesn't ovulate because there is no egg to be fertilized. The Pill also works by thickening the mucus around the cervix, which makes it difficult for sperm to enter the uterus and reach any eggs that may have been released. The hormones in the Pill can also sometimes affect the lining of the uterus, making it difficult for an egg to attach to the wall of the uterus. birth control birth control decreases the amount of eggs your body releases therefore reducing risk of pregnancy.
