Suggest an alternative of Millinette birth control pills

Hi, I require advice about an alternative birth control pill. I m currently taking Millinette 30/75 and have been doing so for the last year. (I have also taken Yasmin in the past.) I am currently travelling, and the country I am in does not supply Millinette, hence I need suggestions for a suitable alternative. I am 21 years old, and not overweight. I drink on occasion, and smoke rarely. I have been diagnosed with PCOS in the past, and am currently taking fluoxetine for depression, and glucophage for insulin resistance. Please advise on a suitable birth control alternative, ideally something that will help manage my PCOS as well. I believe the birth control options here are Cerazette, Cilest, Diane, Diane-35, Exluton, Femulen, Gynera, Loestrin 20, Loestrin 30, Logynon, Marvelon, Microgynon, Microgynon-30, Micronor, Microval, Minulet, Nordette, Ortho Novum 1/50, Ovulen 50, Ovysmen, Trinordiol, Trinordiol 21, Trinovum, Yaz and Yasmin. Thank you for the help.

Hi,

Millinette tablets contain two active ingredients namely ethinylestradiol and gestodene. These are synthetic versions of the naturally occurring female sex hormones - oestrogen and progesterone.

Aidulan, Femodene and Minulet have the same composition and hence you can take them as per the schedule you are following.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
