Which contraceptive methods suppress ovulation?

By Zaira Salvador.
Last Update: 02/12/2019

Contraceptive methods based on suppressing ovulation to prevent pregnancy are those composed of hormones, such as the birth control pill among others.

The hormones contained in contraceptive methods are estrogen and progesterone, which act at the level of the pituitary gland and prevent the secretion of gonadotropins (FSH and LH) so that no follicle is developed and no egg is expelled.
