Answers and Articles about Birth control pills and abnormal bleeding from Woman's Diagnostic Cyber:"Woman's Diagnostic Cyber frequently asked questions FAQs about birth control pills and abnormal bleeding, oral contraceptive problems and other BCP problems"
http://www.wdxcyber.com/mbcontra.htm

******************************************************

Go Ask Alice, Columbia University's Health Question & Answer Internet Service:"Birth control pills fool the body into acting as if it's pregnant. Birth control pills, also called oral contraceptives (OCs), come in two forms: the combined OC, a combination of two synthetic hormones, estrogen and progestin; and, the minipill, which consists solely of progestin. Combined OCs are more commonly used, though both kinds are available through health care providers. The combination pill prevents ovulation by suppressing the natural hormones in the body that would stimulate the ovary to release an egg. By taking this estrogen throughout the month, you insure that no egg will be developed or released for that cycle. Progestin thickens the cervical mucus, hindering the movement of sperm. Progestin also prevents the uterus's lining from developing normally; so, if an egg were fertilized, implantation is unlikely."

******************************************************

Birth Control Especially for Teens:"Making a decision whether to have sex is a tough one. You should make up your own mind about when is the right time. If you're not ready for sex, say so. It's okay to wait. But, if you think you are ready to have sex, or if you already have, you should take steps to avoid pregnancy. Thousands of teenagers become pregnant each year because they do not use birth control."

Clinical Trials: Contraception (CenterWatch, Inc.) - industry-sponsored clinical trials.

******************************************************

e-Gynecologic.com: Birth Control:"There are several different, reversible methods of contraception currently available. These include spermicides, male and female condoms, diaphragm + spermicide, cervical cap, oral contraceptives, progestin-only oral contraceptives, implanted progestin contraceptive, and depo-provera (injection). All of these have risks and benefits associated with them and none of them provide 100% guaranteed contraception. Only condoms, the diaphragm + spermicide, and the cervical cap have the potential to protect against sexually transmitted diseases -- but this protection is NOT 100% guaranteed -- the only absolute 100% protection from STDs is abstinence. All forms of birth control have a failure rate--the only foolproof way to avoid pregnancy during childbearing reproductive years is abstinence."
http://www.e-gynecologic.com/birthcon.html

******************************************************

Emergency Birth Control, or EBC:"Emergency Birth Control, or EBC, is a term used to describe methods of preventing pregnancy that work after having unprotected sex."
http://www.emergencybirthcontrol.org/

******************************************************

HeliosHealth.com:"A Guide to Birth Control: So are those brands all the same or not? Well, all oral contraceptives have estrogen and progestin, and most pills have exactly the same type of estrogen. But they may have different levels of estrogen, and different types of progestin. Check out our guide to learn more!"

******************************************************

Protecting Against Unintended Pregnancy: A Guide to Contraceptive Choices:"The Food and Drug Administration has approved a number of birth control methods, ranging from over-the-counter male and female condoms and vaginal spermicides to doctor-prescribed birth control pills, diaphragms, intrauterine devices (IUDs), injectable hormones, and hormonal implants. Other contraceptive options include fertility awareness and voluntary surgical sterilization."

******************************************************


Birth Control, Contraceptive Medications:

Depo-Provera.com:"It's a reality that the responsibility of birth control still falls mostly on women. That's why it's smart to choose a method that's effective, reliable, and fits into your life. DEPO-PROVERA is 99.7% effective, so it's one of the best ways to assure you won't get pregnant—until you want to. And it's one of the most convenient because you get an injection only 4 times a year. DEPO-PROVERA is a great choice if your goals don't include having children soon. So if your finishing school, starting out in your career or have finished having a family, but aren't ready for the permanence of having your "tubes tied", DEPO-PROVERA may be right for you."
http://www.depoprovera.com

******************************************************

Depo-Provera contraceptive injections, Helios Health, Inc.:"Depo-Provera contraceptive injections are considered to be a safe and effective method of birth control. If you decide to begin using Depo-Provera contraceptive injections, you should know what to expect in the first few months. How Does It Work? How Effective Is It? How Do I Use It? Pros, Cons, Risks, & Side Effects Pros Cons Side Effects Risks"

******************************************************

Estrostep.com:"Estrostep can be a good choice for the treatment of moderate acne in women who are 15 years or older, have no known contraindications to oral contraceptives, desire oral contraception, have reached menstruation, and are unresponsive to topical acne medications. Estrostep should be used for the treatment of acne only by women who choose oral contraception and plan to stay on it for at least 6 months. Oral contraceptives do not protect against HIV or other sexually transmitted diseases. Serious risks include blood clots, stroke, and heart attack. Cigarette smoking increases these risks, especially if you're a smoker over 35. Women who use the Pill are strongly advised not to smoke. Women who have blood clots, certain cancers, or a history of heart attack or stroke, or those who could be pregnant, should not use the Pill."

******************************************************

Birth Control, Contraceptive Devices:

IUCD - A Forgotten Contraception Method, Frederick R. Jelovsek MD, Woman's Diagnostic Cyber:"Many women of reproductive age are at risk for unintended pregnancy. When you couple that with the lack of a perfectly ideal, reversible contraceptive, dilemmas are created for women who have certain risk factors or concerns about possible complications. The IUCD, intrauterine contraceptive device, is only used by about 1% of the population in the U.S. because of women's concerns about possible increased infections of the genital tract."
