Dosages. They both should prevent a pregnancy with the same efficacy. The big difference is that MonoNessa has the same dosage of the norgestimate component all 3 "active pill" weeks, whereas the TriNessa (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) has 3 increasing doses each of those 3 weeks which can help some women better control irregular cycles, abnormal bleeding, or PMS symptoms.
