Mini pill: "Plan B" is composed of essentially the same hormones as are in "combination" oral contraceptives. The "mini pill" is usually just a progestin pill, but may work to prevent implantation if two are used "the morning after" unprotected sexual activity. Plan B and the "mini pill" are not always effective in preventing pregnancy, however.
