Is the mini pill available in sa? i get bad side effects when taking the combo pill and have yet to find a doctor willing to prescribe the mini pill. when i do bring it up the question is usually avoided and im just put on a different combo pill.

Progesterone only: Progesterone only pills are widely available. There are many different brands. I am sorry you have had difficulty finding a doctor to prescribe it. It is a very common type of birth control. Consider a virtual visit on Healthtap with a doctor in your state who can help you meet your contraceptive needs
