How OC 21 TABLET works

Combination oral contraceptives inhibits ovulation, other alterations include changes in the cervical mucus and changes in the endometrium (which reduce the likelihood of implantation). They reduce sperm penetration if ovulation does occur by altering the cervical mucus; cause changes in the endometrium which reduce the risk of nidation and may change the tubal transport of the ova through the fallopian tubes.
