Birth control pills are oral medications used to prevent pregnancy.

Birth control pills are also known as oral contraceptives.

There are two types of birth control pills: combination pills and progestin-only pills. Combination pills contain synthetic forms of the hormones estrogen and progestin. Progestin-only pills do not contain estrogen. Progestin-only pills are also called “the minipill.”



Women have a number of options when choosing birth control pills. There are several types of combination pills:

  monophasic pills give you the same dose of hormone every active day in the cycle 

  multiphasic pills provide different levels of hormones during the cycle
