Hormonal Methods
Combined Birth Control Pills

Combined birth control pills contain the hormones estrogen and progestin that stop ovulation and make the lining of the uterus thinner.

When used consistently and correctly, fewer than 1 out of 100 women will become pregnant over the course of one year. With typical use, 8 women out of 100 will become pregnant.

Combined birth control pills do not protect against sexually transmitted infections. Use condoms to reduce the risk of STIs.

A prescription from a healthcare provider is required to obtain combined birth control pills. To obtain a prescription for birth control pills, call University Health Services (UHS) at (512) 471-4955 to make an appointment with the Gynecology Clinic.
