Maybe: All pills work to help pcos by cutting off the abnormal signaling from the brain to the ovary. They all work nearly equally well in suppressing androgen production. In all pills, the Progesterone is the dominant component, so the differences in effectiveness between types of pills are really insignificant. The goal is to use a pill that will not cause significant irregular bleeding.
