Yes, they sure do!

It's a common myth, especially in young adult Women, that Birth Control is only used to "not get your pregnant", but this is just not true. Aside from decreasing the likelihood of birth, birth control pills can help regulate hormones and menstruation.

Not all types of birth control works with everyone, so if you're interested in taking them, consult your Doctor. There is bound to be one out there that works for you.
