About Mini Pills (Progesterone-Only)

The mini pill contains only progesterone. The most common side effect when this pill is commenced is irregular bleeding, but this tends to be light and usually settles down within 3 months.

The important thing to note about the mini pill is that it must be taken at the same time daily. If you are more than three hours late to take it, you will not have contraceptive protection. With this in mind, it is a good idea to make taking the mini pill part of your regular daily routine or set an alarm to make sure you take it on time. In addition, use condoms to stop the transmission of STIs.

How the mini pill works

The mini pill works by thickening the mucus in the neck of the womb, so it is harder for sperm to penetrate into the womb and reach an egg. Some varieties of the mini pill also stop ovulation.
