Hormonal contraception
Hormonal contraceptive methods influence the hormone levels and usually suppress ovulation. The various contraceptives are prescription-only. Even if they are used differently, they often have very similar results and can have side effects. Hormonal contraceptive methods include the pill, the vaginal ring, IUD or the contraceptive patch. When used correctly, hormonal contraceptives protect against unwanted pregnancy, but not against sexually transmitted diseases.

Hormone testing
Test strips are used to measure hormones in the morning urine. This is often done to determine ovulation.

Hormones
The body's own biochemical messengers, which are produced by glands and transported by blood. Hormones regulate various processes in the body.
