Dr Hilary Jones covers different contraceptive methods

Hormonal contraceptives are considered to be the most effective form of contraception for preventing pregnancy. They are available in a variety of forms including the combined contraceptive pill, mini pill, patch and vaginal ring. Proven to be almost 100% effective at preventing pregnancy, they are the preferred form of contraception for more than 3.5 million women across the UK.

While oral contraceptives such as the pill or mini pill are regarded as the most popular forms of contraceptives available today, recent studies have shown that more and more women are choosing alternative forms of hormonal contraception like the ring or the patch.

What are the benefits of hormonal contraception?

Hormonal contraception is regarded as one of the most reliable and successful ways of preventing pregnancy. If used correctly, many treatments have proven to be more than 99% effective. Whether it's taking a pill daily for 21 days or wearing a patch and changing it once a week, these contraceptives provide a convenient solution so that you can enjoy sex without worrying about pregnancy.

Another benefit is the vast amount of hormonal contraceptives, with over 30 different types of combined pill and a wide range of mini pills available in the UK. This means you will have a better chance of finding the perfect contraceptive solution for you, with the lowest risk of side effects. Many contraceptive pills carry additional benefits and can be used to treat other problems, such as:

  • Acne
  • Painful periods
  • Heavy periods
  • Premenstrual syndrome
  • Endometriosis

Are there any side effects?

Many women have concerns regarding oral contraception because of the potential side effects. It's true that women starting the contraceptive pill for the first time can experience side effects. However, these are relatively minor and pass fairly quickly. Initial side effects you can experience include:

  • Headaches
  • Nausea
  • Breast tenderness
  • Slight weight gain
  • Slight 'spotting' of blood between periods
  • Changes in your mood

Picking the right contraceptive is paramount in reducing any potential side effects. You may need to try more than one before you find a pill that works well for you. Anyone with any of the following health problems may be restricted as to which type of contraception they can use:

  • Smoking addiction
  • Being overweight
  • Diabetes
  • High blood pressure
  • Family history of thrombosis
  • High cholesterol levels
  • Vein inflammation, such as phlebitis
  • Immobility
