Hormonal Contraception

This informative website is designed to inform women and adolescents about modern hormonal means of preventing unwanted pregnancies. This is an important issue for every modern woman, especially if she really cares about her health.

All of us faced obsessive advertising of hormonal contraceptives one way or another. It’s important to remember that such medications cannot be used without prior studying the instructions for use, learning contraindications for use, side effects, interactions, etc. All these aspects can be found on The resource invites you to read the detailed instructions for use for modern hormonal contraceptives.

Regretfully, many gynecologists do not have full information about hormonal contraception and their effect of hormonal oral contraceptives on the female body. This is why our website is the main source of information about these drugs. Producers are interested in increasing sales of hormonal contraceptives and talk primarily about the “positive” aspects of taking contraceptives. We encourage you to learn the complete information.

This informative web portal was developed by the specialists of the Women’s Reproductive Health Association, which was founded in 2005 in California by a group of specialist who believed that all women regardless of financial status, age or gender deserved equal access to high-quality information about the women’s reproductive health and birth control methods. In 2012, the Women’s Reproductive Health Association became the only federally recognized organization dedicated solely to providing information about hormonal birth control methods. The portal was designed to become a unifying information resource on hormonal contraceptives.

We hope that the information presented on the website will be interesting and useful for:

  • adolescents and their parents;
  • women and men of reproductive age;
  • specialists in reproductive health
  • a wide range of Internet users, regardless of their age and professional background.

Remember: safe and effective contraception is an important part of our health and well-being!
