Ortho-Novum Birth Control

Women who are interested in an oral form of birth control may consider Ortho-Novum®. As a combined hormonal contraceptive, this drug works to prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation and altering the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus. It comes in a pack of pills, and one pill is taken each day.
 
In order to ensure the effectiveness of Ortho-Novum for birth control, it is important that you not miss any doses. Missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy. What you should do if you miss a pill will depend on how many doses you have missed and where you are in your cycle. Contact your healthcare provider for instructions.
