Sronyx is a combined oral contraceptive, the most common type of birth control pill. It is called a combined oral contraceptive because it contains a combination of two different types of hormones. It contains both an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and a progestin (levonorgestrel).
The hormones in Sronyx prevent pregnancy by preventing ovulation (the maturation and release of eggs from the ovaries). Sronyx also works to prevent pregnancy in two other, less important ways. It changes the cervical mucus (the fluid of the cervix, which is the lower, narrow part of the uterus that is connected to the vagina), making it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus. Lastly, Sronyx alters the lining of the uterus (called the endometrium), making it less receptive to an embryo.
