This is another reason why women get huge side effects by taking contraceptive pills. There are two types of contraceptive pills: low dose pills and ultra-low dose pills.

Contraceptive pills are effective. However, the oestrogen amount regulates the side effects on women body. If the oestrogen count is high in any of the contraceptive pills then it has a harsh side effect in women bodies. Women get side effects like headaches, nausea, periods cramps, blood clots, tender breasts etc. But the low dose pills are quite effective in women bodies.

Ultra-low dose contraceptive pills:
“Ultra-low dose”- the name itself defines that the oestrogen count is very less on the pill. Here the oestrogen count is 20microgram or less than that. The side effect of this pills is quite less. But it does not mean that the capability of preventing pregnancy is less. This type of pills works well on perimenopausal women.
