Ovulation and Ovaries Answer A39100
Welcome to ehealthforum,
Hormonal contraceptive methods work in any one of three ways: 1) by preventing your ovaries from releasing an egg every month; 2) by causing the thickening of cervical mucus and making it harder for sperms to penetrate and reach the egg; 3) by causing thinning of the lining of the uterus (endometrium) which reduces implantation chances of the fertilized egg will in the uterus wall. When women are on regular use of birth control pills, their ovulation is suppressed. If you worry about still ovulating, consider monitoring cervical mucus changes and the BBT (basal body temperature) charting to predict your ovulation and time your intercourse away from your peak fertile days. For further clarification and assistance, visit your doctor/gynecologist.
Take care.
