How Ovysmen works
The combined pill is a small tablet you swallow daily that contains hormones oestrogen and progestogen. The pill prevents pregnancy in three ways – by stopping ovulation, making the fluid in your cervix thicker (which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the womb), and preventing the lining of your womb thickening enough for a fertilised egg to implant into it.
