Types of contraceptives and their specifics
Today, there are two types of oral contraceptives:
1. Combined oral contraceptives
Each combined oral contraceptive pill contains a certain dosage of estrogen and synthetic progesterone or progestin. These pills provide the body with the hormones that are necessary for any woman.
