In brief: Hormonal methods
Typically, the levels of sex hormones in a female rise and fall in a cyclic pattern.
This is what causes a woman's cycle and controls ovulation. Common birth control methods such as the pill or patch that use hormonal regulation give a constant amount of hormones. This keeps the levels high and prevents the natural cyclic pattern therefore preventing ovulation.
