What is the progesterone only pill?
The progesterone only / mini pill (POP) is a small tablet you swallow daily that (unlike the combined pill) only contains one hormone – progesterone, and is often used by women that can’t tolerate oestrogen. This means fewer than 1 in 100 women who use the progestogen only pill as contraception will get pregnant in 1 year.
