Nothing: Nortrel and orthonovum contain the exact same amounts of the exact same active ingredients. The only difference is the company that makes them.

Same: Both are birth control pills that contain Norethindrone and ethinyl estradiol. Each has a couple od different dosing formulas, both have the 1/35, nortrel has a .5/35 and orthonovum has a triphasic version meaning you get different levels of hormones for each week.
