“Combination” birth control pills are the tried-and-true option for most women because they dramatically reduce the chances of pregnancy by preventing ovulation and thickening cervical mucus, which makes it more difficult for sperm to enter the cervix. Apri is a popular combination pill choice because it can treat acne and help prevent ovarian cysts, in addition to preventing pregnancy. Because the product contains estrogen, however, it is not recommended for women over 35 who smoke or women with a history of breast cancer. Keep in mind, oral contraceptive pills do not protect against STIs (sexually transmitted infections) like herpes and chlamydia—only condoms do that!
