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.

Answer go to a gynocologyst and ask them to put you on birth control.
Medical birth control (the pill, NuvaRing, IUDs, etc) can be obtained by asking your doctor or nurse practitioner. However, some doctors require a gynecological exam and pap s…mear before they will prescribe them to you. This requirement is not recommended by the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology, so talk to a few offices to find out if their practices are up-to-date. Condoms, spermicides, and other forms of birth control can be purchased at almost any pharmacy or convenience store such as Wal-Mart, Walgreens, or Rite-Aide. Even some gas stations sell condoms. You can obtain birth control by seeing a gynaecologist or by going to Planed Parent Hood! There are many different types of birth control so make sure youresearch the different types and talk to your gynaecologist to see which would be best for you!
They are the hormone pill, like the I Pill and the condom.
If taken properly, it prevents pregnancy.
Methods of Birth Control Male birth control methods include withdrawal of the male before ejaculation (the oldest contraceptive technique) and use of the condom, …a rubber sheath covering the penis. The condom, because of its use as a protection against sexually transmitted diseases, including AIDS, has become a frequently used birth control device. Contraceptive methods for women include the rhythm method-abstinence around the most likely time of ovulation-and precoital insertion into the vagina of substances (creams, foams, jellies, or suppositories) containing spermicidal chemicals. The use of a diaphragm, a rubber cup-shaped device inserted before intercourse, prevents sperm from reaching the uterine cervix; it is usually used with a spermicide. Contraceptive sponges, which are impregnated with a spermicide, also are inserted into the vagina before intercourse and work primarily by acting as a barrier to the sperm. Intrauterine devices, or IUDs, are variously shaped small objects inserted by a doctor into the uterus; they apparently act by creating a uterine environment hostile either to sperm or to the fertilized egg. The birth control pill, an oral contraceptive, involves a hormonal method in which estrogen and progestins (progesteronelike substances) are taken cyclically for 21 or 84 days, followed by 7 days of inactive or no pills. The elevated levels of hormones in the blood suppress production of the pituitary hormones (luteinizing hormone and follicle-stimulating hormone) that would ordinarily cause ovulation. An oral contraceptive formulation that utilizes no inactive pills and is taken every day (and completely suppresses menstruation) also exists. Estrogen and progestins may also be delivered through the weekly use of a contraceptive skin patch or the monthly use of a vaginal ring (a flexible plastic ring inserted in the vagina); both slowly release the hormones they contain. Sterilization of the female, often but not always performed during a Cesarean section or shortly after childbirth, consists of cutting or tying both Fallopian tubes, the vessels that carry the egg cells from the ovaries to the uterus. In male sterilization (vasectomy) the vas deferens, the tubes that carry sperm from the testes to the penis, are interrupted. Sterilization, in most cases irreversible, involves no loss of libido or capacity for sex. No contraceptive yet devised is at once simple, acceptable, safe, effective, and reversible. Some, such as the diaphragm, condom, and chemical and rhythm methods, require high motivation by users; the pill, which must be taken daily, sometimes induces undesirable side effects, such as nausea, headache, weight gain, and increased tendency to develop blood clots. The IUDs, although requiring no personal effort or motivation, are often not tolerated or are expelled, and they sometimes, particularly if poorly designed, cause uterine infection, septic abortion, and other problems. If birth control fails (or is not used), doctors may prescribe several large doses of certain oral contraceptives as "morning after" pills; the high level of hormones can inhibit the establishment of pregnancy even if fertilization has taken place. Mifepristone, or RU-486, the so-called abortion pill, is effective within seven weeks after conception and requires close medical supervision. It was first approved in Europe and was tested in the mid-1990s in United States, where it was approved in 2000. Another experimental technique is immunization against human chorionic gonadotropin (HCG), a hormone secreted by a developing fertilized egg that stimulates production of progesterone by the ovary; the effect of the anti-HCG antibody would be to inactivate HCG and thereby induce menstruation even if fertilization occurred.

Birth control helps prevent unwanted children for women. It also helps women regulate their period.
Birth control is what is used to prevent unintended pregnancy,there are multiple different types of birth control that work indifferent ways, it is ignorant to say 'birth cont…rol' to mean onespecific type of birth control. Without knowing what type of birthcontrol you're referring to we cannot answer your question - somebirth control does absolutely nothing to your hormones, some birthcontrol completely shuts down your hormones.
Birth control does not interfere with sexual activity. In vasectomy as is the general norm. Only the vas deferens is tied up. So a man will still be able to produce semen but …it will not pass through the penis. It will instead be broken down and reabsorbed into the blood.
absolutely do not miss a lot of birth control pills. If you consistently miss pills, you will get an irregular period (you could get a period like 3 times a month) and there i…s a very good chance you will get pregnant.
I don't know whether you're a man or a woman, but there are many forms of birth control. Condoms you can buy in a supermarket or at the drugstore. Be carefull to use only reco…gnized and safe brands (the popular ones such as for example Trojan). Condoms in funny shapes or things like that can be unsafe, so use a good brand. If you're a woman, there are several options such as the birth control pill, the ring, injections... It's important that you go see a doctor first. These pills contain a certain amount of hormones, and not everyone can 'handle' the big doses. The doctor can prescribe you a lighter form or a heavier one, depending on your body and on your reactions to the pill. If you experience some side effects from using a certain type of pill, you should switch to another one until you've found the one that's right for you. It is important to go see a doctor first though. He can give you the best advice.
It's usually easiest to go to your Dr, as they can advise you on which birth control would suit you best, and some of them are only available this way, such as the coil, the i…mplant and the injection. You can however buy condoms in most chemists and supermarkets if you don't wish to go to your Dr.
