Jane, as far as I know the mechanism of working isn’t 100% clear. It is assumed that it suppresses the movement of the ovum through the tubes, but the main mode of action is that it makes the endometrium hostile to implantation. If you have more questions, please post them as a new question to ensure that I get them. Good luck.
