Do you ovulate on the pill?
There are two types of hormonal contraceptive pill; the combined pill (COC), which contains artificial versions of the oestrogen and progesterone hormones, and the progestogen-only pill (POP), often called the ‘mini pill’.
Oral contraceptive pills work by making it harder for sperm to penetrate the womb and reach an egg, and also by thinning the lining of the womb, so there is less chance of a fertilised egg implanting. In some women, they may also stop the ovaries from releasing an egg (ovulation). However, most women using the combined pill,will continue to ovulate.
