In brief: Mini pill

Nor q-d is a progestin only pill.
It contains no estrogen, like most oral contraceptives. It is commonly used with breast feeding. It has lees of an impact on milk production. Users can have trouble with irregular bleeding.1 important difference is there is no week without hormones with this pill. You need to take all the pills in the pack and then switch to the next pack right away.
