Birth Control Pills

Cyclessa

Cyclessa is a pill that you take at the same time every day to prevent pregnancy. While pregnancy prevention is the main focus of Cyclessa, it can also help regulate your period, reduce cramps, and lighten the flow of your menstrual cycle. Though like many pills, Cyclessa comes with potential risks, including worsening anxiety and depression symptoms. Many women who aren’t sexually active take this pill for the benefits alone!

Nora-Be

Mini-pills such as Nora-BE are good for women who have trouble tolerating estrogen. This pill is a progestin-only medication, containing only one hormone instead of the two hormones that are found in combination pills. The medication thickens the vaginal fluid so that it’s more difficult for sperm to reach the egg. It also changes the uterine lining so that it’s more difficult for a fertilized egg to attach to it. In about half of users, Nora-BE stops ovulation.
