  • An abortive form of birth control. Rather than stopping your body from ovulating, as the pill does, so you are unable to become pregnant, it instead eliminates all eggs from your system; unfertilized or fertilized. If you believe life begins at conception then it may not be for you. Talk to your OB about it. Mine is strongly against them.
