About Millinette 20 & 30

What’s the difference between 20/30 µg (micrograms)?

Millinette comes in two different doses – 20 µg and 30 µg of the hormone oestrogen. Although Millinette 20 and Millinette 30 contain different levels of hormones, they both provide you with the same level of contraceptive protection. Both can prevent you from getting pregnant, when used correctly.

The main difference between Millinette 20 and Millinette 30 is that there are usually less side effects associated with Millinette 20 µg, because it contains less hormones. If you find that you often have trouble with side effects when taking the Pill, Millinette 20 is probably the most suitable one for you.

Millinette 30 may have a higher risk of side effects, but it has stronger, non-contraceptive benefits as well. These can include:

  • Improving acne.
  • Reducing heavy periods.
  • Reducing premenstrual symptoms.

The most common side effects (affecting 1 in 10 users) are

  • Headaches.
  • Irregular bleeding (or ‘spotting’) between periods.
  • Vaginal infections (like thrush).
  • Mood swings (including depression and anxiety).
  • Nausea and dizziness.
  • Acne.
  • Weight gain.
  • Breast swelling or tenderness.
  • Painful periods.
