It prevents you from ovulating and releasing the eggs. It does not affect the eggs that you got born with in a negative way.

Because you do not ovulate, your uterus lining will not thicken to support the possible implantation of the fertilized egg. You do not menstruate. Your period is the uterus walls bleeding because the active hormones that prevent that from happening, is not present in the inactive pills.

Your cervical mucus will also stay sperm unfriendly throughout your cycle to prevent the sperm from getting into your uterus.

So there you have the 3 effects of hormonal birth control:
1) No ovulation
2) No preparation/thickening of uterus lining
3) No sperm friendly cervical mucus
