Different name: Chemically these are the same thing. Desetta is a the generic form. Most likely your insurance covered one and not the other. They are the same thing so use the cheaper one.

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

No effect: on the birth control effectiveness. All pills have 1 - 2 % failure rate, regardless.
