Birth control is the use of medication, surgical procedures, devices or methods to prevent pregnancy from occurring.
The birth control we carry at Zoey prevents pregnancy by stopping or delaying ovulation in the body. It also thickens the fluid within the cervix and thins the womb lining so that no egg is able to lodge and grow.
Birth control is usually 99% effective with correct daily usage. However, if you are inconsistent with your daily intake, it can compromise the effectiveness.
Some of the most common side effects include: nausea, headaches, mood changers, tender breasts, heavier or stopped periods, irregular bleeding or spotting between period cycles, lowered libido.
Be sure to inform your doctor of your medical history and the medication you are currently taking to ensure no adverse interactions or side effects occurs when taking birth control.
If you decide you want to get pregnant, just stop taking birth control. It can take a few months for your period to go back to the cycle you had before you took birth control, but you can still get pregnant during that time.
