Combined pill

Levest is a very common type of 'starter' pill that is often prescribed because it contains a standard dose of oestrogen and a progestogen with a lower risk of blood clots than some other combined pills. It contains the same ingredients as Microgynon and Rigevidon, which have been around and researched for years.
