Hormonal Birth Control

Hormonal methods of birth control contain estrogen and progestin, or contain just progestin, and are a safe and reliable way to prevent pregnancy for most women. They have been used for many years as a safe and effective method of contraception. There are several ways that the hormone(s) can be delivered:

Combination estrogen & progestin:

  • A daily pill taken by mouth
  • A skin patch that is changed weekly
  • A ring in the vagina that is changed every month

Progestin only:

  • A daily pill taken by mouth
  • An injection that is given once every three months
  • A rod implant that is placed under the skin of the arm for up to three years
  • An IUD that is effective for 3 to 5 years
