The mini-pill is a type of birth control pill that contains about half the amount of the hormone pro­gestin found in most combined oral contra­ceptives.  There is no estrogen in mini-pills.

Birth control pills (also known as combined oral contraception or "the pill") are used to prevent pregnancy.  They are an effective non-surgical and reversible method of contraception.  If taken consistently and correctly, birth control pills are more than 99% effective in preventing pregnancy.

Emergency Contraception is a medication that women may take within 72 to 120 hours of unprotected intercourse.  It is important to take emergency contraception as soon as possible for maximum effectiveness.
