Does using birth control excommunicate you the way abortion does?

So I know how birth control and other contraceptives are mortal sins. But I also know that abortion is considered worse than normal contraception. (Like condoms) and have to be specially forgiven, more than just confession. but I was wondering if the use of pills were also considered worse. Or will just normal confession forgive the sin same as missing mass or saying gods name in vain. Please help. Thank you! Bye I am a man and this is if the girl was on the pill.
