Family planning is one of the considered topics among couples. Birth control pills play a major role in family planning. Ovral is one such Birth Control Pill which is widely used by women worldwide. Ovral birth control pills are the common contraceptives used by women to prevent unwanted pregnancy. Birth control pills also protect the women from the unwanted pregnancy abortion by preventing the abortion at the beginning stage.
The effective rate of Ovral is up to 99.9 per cent if taken regularly and correctly. However, the pill does not work against Sexually Transmitted Disease (STD) including HIV (the first stage of AIDS).
Ovral Action Mechanism
The pregnancy occurs when an egg is released from the woman’s ovary. Then, the fertilized egg gets attached to the woman’s womb where it gets nutrients and develops into a baby. The Ovral pill contains two manmade hormones in a small amount i.e., estrogen and progestin hormone. These hormones disturb the workings of natural cyclic hormones to prevent pregnancy. The contraceptive stops the body from ovulating and also change the cervical mucus, making it difficult for the sperm to find the egg. This is how; Ovral stalls the pregnancy at its initial stage.
