A short-acting family planning method
The progestogen-only pill (POP) is a tablet that contains one hormone, progestogen, and is taken daily to prevent pregnancy.
The hormone makes it harder for the man’s sperm to get into the womb and may also change the lining of the womb so an egg cannot develop in it.
92%. If one hundred women used the pill for a year, then 92 of those women would not fall pregnant during that period.
Some women forget to take the pill every day, which can increase the risk of unplanned pregnancy.
