If it works for you.: Pretty much all of the oral combo contraceptives have similar effecacy and risk profile, but one-pill does not fit all. If you don't have any side effect from it and it is affordable, then it is a good one for you. There are many different pills available and so if this does not fit, talk to your doc and likely u will be given a trial of something else. Consult your doc. Good luck.

The one you like: The best birth control pill is the one that you like and the one you will take every day. Dont worry too much about the different brands. Find one that is covered well on your insurance with a low copay and see how you do.
A 43-year-old member asked:

I've been on mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) birth control pills for 9 years with no period in 3 years. Is this ok?

No peroid on mircett: Yes, the longer you take a birth control pill and take it regularly, the lighter your period may become and eventually disappear. If you even spot one day during the proper time, it is considered a period. You have nothing to worry about. If you would like to have a period your dr. May prescribe some other hormones to take with your Mircette (ethinyl estradiol and desogestrel) and induce a cycle.
