Contraceptive Pill (COC/Combined)
If taken correctly the combined pill or ‘pill’, as it is commonly known is over 99% effective at preventing pregnancy. You usually take the pill every day for 21 days, then stop for seven days and during this week you have a period-type bleed. You start taking the pill again after seven days.
