    Good afternoon. Contraceptive pills are female hormonal drugs that prevent pregnancy. There are different types and as such you should speak to your doctor to help you decide on which is best for you. A common type is microgynon which contains estrogen and progesterone. It's taken one tab everyday. Most pills help to treat menstrual symptoms like heavy and painful flow but they can also alter a woman's cycle and cause nausea and headaches. Pills are not 100% guarantee against pregnancy so the use of condom alongside is advised. Considering your age, abstinence is the best to prevent pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases like HIV and gonorrhea. Happy new month.
