Few advances have given women greater power over their lives than the Pill.

When many people hear the name Bayer, they think of Aspirin®. And, in fact, Bayer's introduction of aspirin in 1899 was a major innovation. What many people don't realize is that Bayer HealthCare is also the world's leading maker of hormonal contraceptives for women.

What's more, the company has a long history of innovation in birth control—stretching back almost to the introduction of the Pill itself in 1960.

Among Bayer HealthCare innovations:
