In brief: Birth control pill

Estrostep (ethinyl estradiol and norethindrone) in a combination oral contraceptive pill that contains Norethindrone as the Progesterone component and ethinyl Estradiol as the estrogen.
It gets its name because the estrogen dose steps up from 20 micrograms the first week to 30 micrograms the second to 35 micrograms the third week. The last 7 pills contain iron to help offset menstrual blood loss.
