The Pill

The Pill works by either stopping ovulation or thickening the cervical mucus to prevent sperm from reaching the egg. But in the case of combination pills (containing two hormones), both of these can be accomplished. It essentially just tricks your body into thinking you’re pregnant.

    IM ON BIRTH CONTROL! lol obviously, I love it. I was on Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo (big name lol) and I would always get nauseous whenever I started a new pill pack. but my college clinic put me on Aviane and now I have no symptoms at all. so it takes some weeding out to find which brands work best for you.
