Hormonal Methods Progestin - Only Pills

Progestin-only pills contain progestin that prevents pregnancy by making cervical mucus thicker and by making the lining of the uterus thinner.

When used consistently and correctly, less than one percent of women will become pregnant over the course of one year. 8% of women will experience a pregnancy in the first year with typical use.

Progestin-only pills do not protect from sexually transmitted infections. Use condoms to reduce the risk of STIs.

A prescription from a healthcare provider is required to obtain progestin-only pills. In order to obtain a prescription for progestin-only pills, call University Health Services (UHS) at (512) 471-4955 to make an appointment with the Women's Health.
