Pill & Co.: Hormonal contraceptives

Hormonal contraceptives contain synthetic hormones that function in the same way as the body’s natural hormones oestrogens and progestorens. Hormonal contraceptives are very safe. Because they influence the hormonal cycle, side effects are possible, however .

The first hormonal contraceptive on the German market was the birth control pill in the 1960s. Compared to the pill today, it was a high dose with severe side effects. Research and development of contraceptives has since made significant progress. Modern hormonal contraceptives work using a significantly lower dose, are better aligned with the female hormonal cycle and are generally well tolerated.

There is a wide range of hormonal contraceptives available:

the pill

the mini pill

3-monthly injections

hormonal patch

hormonal ring / Nuvaring

hormonal IUDs / Mirena / Kyleena / Jaydess
