The progestogen only pill (POP) or mini-pill is different to the combined pill.
It only contains a single hormone – progestogen.
It is taken every day without a break. It has different missed pill rules to the combined pill. It is often suitable for people who cannot take the combined pill for medical reasons and it is not thought to increase risk of blood clots. It is not possible to control bleeding patterns on the POP and some people may experience irregular bleeding or have no bleeding at all.
