The Pill By Joseph and Joshua

This method of birth control is used by only women.

It uses the hormonal method to prevent pregnancy. This method stops ovulation, thins the uterine lining, and thickens the cervical mucus.

To use this method, you first need to go to your doctor and get a prescription. You then must take one pill everyday at the same time.

The pill does not protect you from getting an STI.

This method costs $15 to $50 a month.

The pill is only as effective as you take it. A typical user will only get a 92% effectiveness rate, while a perfect user will get a 99% effectiveness rate.

Compared to other methods, it is more effective than the male condom, and less expensive than the shot.

Advantages of the pill include: a reduction of acne, regulated periods, and less painful menstrual cramps

Disadvantage s of the pill include possible side effects such as headaches, nausea, and mood swings.

Very forgetful people most likely will not find this method effective since you need to remember to take it daily.
