For my STEAM project I wanted to look further into the process of how birth control prevents pregnancy from occuring. Most forms of hormonal birth control restrict the release of the female egg. I compared this process to the ways in which a spy would detonate a bomb. In this metaphor the release of the female egg from the ovary is the bomb, it is a matter of time before it is released. It is the hormones jobs, estrogen and progesterone, to enter the female’s body and ensure that the bomb, or the female’s egg is not released. I created an informational poster that explains the different types of hormonal birth control available, as well as how they are used.
