Estrogen and progesterone are the female hormones that are associated with ovulation and menstruation in females.Besides this both play important role in pregnancy.Birth control pills contains the combination of both hormones as they work in the following ways:-
1.Such pills work by stopping the full development of ovum each month,due to which it no longer accept a spem and thereby preventing the fertilization.It is the main action of the birth control pills.
2.If in case the woman’s egg gets developed,such pills also thickens cervical mucus at the opening of the uterus which makes it hard for the sperm to reach the egg.
3. In addition,pills can also change the uterus lining just enough so that an egg will not stop in the uterus to develop.
