Is there a lower risk for blood clots when taking Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo? Safer than Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)? Can't seem to find how much hormone is in Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo

Is there a lower risk for blood clots when taking Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo?  Safer than Yaz (drospirenone and ethinyl estradiol)?  Can't seem to find how much hormone is in Ortho Tri Cyclen Lo
