The birth control pill is one of the hormonal methods that can be used, it's probably one of the commonly known for individuals. They are different packets and they vary from one individual to the other. So again, one has to go to their doctor to get the birth control pill. It's not something that you will use your neighbors or your friends or your cousins. Each one is for the individual. The way they basically work is that you take the pill every single day, and then at the same time and on the last week the are placebos, they don't have any of the hormone in them, and that's the week when the individual get's their period. They can be very effective up to 98% effective if use properly every single time. This method may not be good for individuals who are not good in remembering to take the pill on a regular basis at the same time. It is a method that is very easy for some individuals who just depends on who you are to be able to use these particular type of birth control and again your doctor is going to decide which one is the best one for you to be able to work with this particular method.
