There are 40 different formulations out there of the birth control pill. There are usually 3 different levels of estrogen (10 mcg, 20mcg, 30mcg, we do NOT recommend less than 30mcg for anyone under 30 years old. Too low of estrogen is NOT good for your bone health/density. See our youtube video ) and 8 different progesterones. So NOTE which progesterone and what level estrogen and find a doctor willing to try different ones and work with you.

Pandia Health has birth control expert doctors. If you are in California, Texas, Florida (and soon other US states), we’d be happy to help.

Otherwise, many people do well on norgestimate, desogestrel, drosperinone as the progestin. So perhaps cycle through those with your doctor.
