This pill, named Cyred Birth Control, is used to suppress pregnancy. The drug comprises multiple hormones: progestin and estrogen. It functions primarily by blocking an egg (ovulation) from being released during the woman’s cycles. It also allows vaginal fluid heavier to help deter sperm from touching an embryo (fertilization) and avoid penetrating a fertilized egg from changing the uterine lining (womb). It goes out of the body if an embryo does not stick to the uterus. Birth control pills, besides preventing pregnancy, can make your cycles more frequent, minimize blood loss and painful periods, lower your chances of ovarian cysts, and even treat acne. However, you and your partner are not covered from sexually transmitted infections when taking this drug (such as HIV, gonorrhea, chlamydia).
