Thanks for using the HCM. I am happy to address your questions, Minipill, this contains only the synthetic form of progesterone. The Mini-Pill is only available in a 28-day pack. A pill everyday for the 4 week cycle, and all 28 pills are considered active. It makes the cervical mucus thicker, which prevents sperm from entering the uterus. This pill must be taken every day at the same time and is not as effective as the combined pill. It is usually suitable for women who either experience side effects from oestrogen or shouldn’t take it for health reasons. If you do not have any concerns then would recommend you speak with your gynaecologist for any alternate combined oral contraceptive pills which are also well tolerated. Hope I have answered your query. If you have any further questions I will be happy to help. Thanks
