Ogestrel Birth Control

A highly effective form of birth control, Ogestrel® (norgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a pill that is taken once a day to prevent pregnancy. It is a "combined" oral contraceptive, which means that it contains two different types of hormones: an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and a progestin (norgestrel).
 
Most women are able to take this product without any problems. However, birth control pills are known to cause side effects, such as:
 
  • Acne
  • Breast tenderness
  • Nausea or vomiting.
  •  
In order for Ogestrel to be effective, it must be taken as prescribed. Forgetting pills increases your risk of unintentional pregnancy.
