Birth control safety: Birth control pills have different side effects, the best one for you is the one you like the best.
All birth control pills are effective, but their reliability depends on taking them every day. Also, if there are other medical conditions present, the medications for those conditions can decrease the efficacy of the pill, ex anti seizure medications or antibiotics.
