What are Mini Pills

Progestogen-Only Pills or Progestin-Only Pills are oral contraceptive pills, commonly known as mini pills. Unlike regular birth control pills, mini pills contain only one hormone called Progestin or Progestogen and therefore, have a lower risk of side effects. The women over 35 or women who cannot take regular contraceptive pills colloquially use mini pills. These light contraceptive pills are taken for the full cycle of 28 days without any break.
