Ortho-Cept (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) contains a combination of female hormones that prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary). This medication also causes changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.

When you start a new birth control pill it is common to have irregular cycles/bleeding for the first three months. If this continues after three months please let your doctor know.
