The minipill

Woman looking for progesterone pills on her phone in bed

Key takeaways

  • Mini-pills are 99% effective contraceptive pills that only contain the hormone progesterone, and not oestrogen

  • They work by making it difficult for sperm to reach the egg and make it hard for fertilised eggs to grow in the womb

  • Progesterone-only pills help avoid the side effects of oestrogen, including blood clots and high blood pressure

  • Progesterone-only pills need to be taken at a very similar time each day, making them less convenient than the Pill

  • The mini-pill can cause some side effects, but these are rare and usually disappear in the first few months
