How Does The Combined Pill Work?
The combined pill prevents the egg from being released from the ovaries, also known as ovulation. The combined pill also makes the mucus in the neck of the womb thicker so sperm cannot penetrate it and reach the egg easily.
It also makes the lining of the womb thinner, minimizing the chance of a fertilised egg being implanted into the womb. When used correctly, the Combined pill is over 99% effective.
Who Can Use The Combined Pill?
Women who do not smoke and have no medical reasons not to take the combined pill can do so until menopause. However, not everyone can use the combined pill. You should speak to your doctor or an expert at a sexual health clinic to determine if you can use the combined pill.
You shouldn’t use a combined pill if:
- You are pregnant
- You are a smoker and over 35 years old
- You stopped smoking less than 12 months ago and are over 35
- You are obese
- You take certain treatments
- You have a history of blood clotting
- You have suffered a stroke or similar conditions that narrow the arteries
- You have a family history of blood clotting under 45
- You’ve had heart disease or a heart condition such as high blood pressure
- You are suffering from severe migraines
- You have a history of breast cancer
- You have gallbladder or liver disease
- You have diabetes or a family history of diabetes
When Can I Start Using The Combined Pill?
First, make sure you are not pregnant. If you’re not, you can start using the pill on any day of your menstrual cycle. Depending on when you start, the pill offers a different level of protection.
If you start using the pill on the first day of the period, you will immediately be protected from pregnancy.
If you start using the pill up to the fifth day of the period you will be immediately protected.
If you start using the pill at any other time during the cycle, you will need to use an alternative form of contraception such as a condom for 7 days. After 7 days the effects of the combined pill will offer protection from unwanted pregnancy.
Benefits Of The Combined Pill
While the pill protects against unwanted pregnancy, it also offers a number of other benefits and is frequently prescribed for one of these effects.
Some of the benefits of a combined pill include:
- Reduced period flow
- Alleviates the pain and cramping
- Reduces hormonal acne
- Helps prevent and treat polycystic ovary syndrome

Frequently Asked Questions
What Should I Do If I Miss A Combined Pill?
If you miss your dose, check the patient information leaflet included in the treatment package. Different combined pills have different rules regarding missed doses, depending on how much time has passed since your last dose as well as how many pills you’ve missed.
Which Contraceptive Pill Is Best For Me?
There is no universal answer to that question since the best contraceptive pill is determined on a case-by-case basis. In consultation with a medical professional, you can find birth control pills in the UK that suit you and can provide you with optimal results both in terms of pregnancy prevention and menstrual relief.
Your medical professional will take numerous considerations into account when advising you on the most appropriate type of pill, including your medical history, age, menstrual characteristics, whether you have given birth, etc.
Here are a few guidelines that you should follow when choosing a contraceptive pill:
- Discuss your options with a medical professional during your consultation.
- Compare the advantages of both combined and mini contraceptive pills.
- Don’t forget to discuss or research possible side effects
- Consider your existing medical conditions
Will The Contraceptive Pill Make Me Infertile?
The contraceptive pill will not affect your childbearing ability once you stop taking it. In some women, the menstrual cycle might not revert back to normal right away. However, this does not affect fertility in the long run.
What Is The Difference Between The Combined And Mini Pill?
Combined pregnancy pills are one of the most popular contraceptive methods among women for the following reasons:
- They are a highly effective type of birth control pills.
- They can alleviate the symptoms of menstrual periods.
- The combined pills help regulate the menstrual cycle.
This type of pill also minimizes your risk of developing womb, colon, or ovary cancer.
However, it’s important to mention that combined pills may lead to certain side effects, especially at the beginning of your birth control treatment. These side effects include weight gain, mood swings, skin problems, and, in some cases, higher chances of developing blood clots.
Of course, this depends on each individual case, which means that you may experience some or all of these symptoms. This is why it’s important that you find the right type of contraceptive pill for your body.
Mini Pills are a bit less popular than the combined contraceptives, but they still offer an array of benefits:
- Easy to Use
- No risk of developing blood clots since they are progestogen-based.
- These pills are suitable for a great number of women, including those breastfeeding.
Nevertheless, the mini pill also has some disadvantages when compared to the combined pill. Namely, mini contraceptives are typically less effective than the other type of birth control pills. In addition, since they don’t regulate the menstrual cycle, you may also experience “breakout” or irregular bleeding.
Which Is Better, The Combined Pill Or The Mini PIll?
Unfortunately, there is no straightforward answer to this question. It all depends on your individual case and body type, age and a number of other factors. Therefore, you should carefully consider your options, consult with a medical professional, and conduct extensive research to find a contraceptive pill that suits you most.
Additionally, if you feel that the pill you’re taking is too difficult on your body, you can always find an alternative solution. In this case, it’s always advisable that you consult your doctor, discuss the negative effects you’re experiencing, and seek their advice on possible alternative treatment.
