The Best Birth Control Pill For You: A Guide
The Different Kinds of Birth Control
These are called monophasic pills because they have the same level of hormones in your active weeks.
This is the multiphasic pill. This means every week in your active pills, there are different levels of hormones in them, so that's why they’re different colors. Some people prefer this because it mimics the natural hormone fluctuations that your body has.
