Hormonal contraceptives that contain both an estrogen and progestin are called combined oral contraceptives (COCs). Those that contain just progestin are called progestin-only contraceptives (POPs). COCs prevent pregnancy by inhibiting the normal process of ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary) and by altering the lining of the uterus.
There are eight different types of progestin that may be found in combination birth control pills along with estrogen (typically ethinyl estradiol).The term progestin is used for any natural or man-made substance that has properties similar to natural progesterone.
Progestins are categorized by generation, which indicates primarily when they were introduced to the market. Abstract This open-label, multicenter study evaluated the efficacy, safety, and cycle control of Yasmin, a new low-dose, monophasic oral contraceptive containing the unique progestogen drospirenone (DRSP) 3 mg and ethinyl estradiol (EE) 30 μg.
DRSP is a synthetic progestogen that has antiandrogenic and antimineralocorticoid effects. The introduction of a new progestin-only oral contraceptive in Europe (Faculty of Family Planning ) led to renewed interest in this class of oral contraceptives.

Patients often discontinue hormonal contraceptives because of menstrual cycle disorders.1 Progestin-only pills and low-dose combined oral contraceptives.
Progestin is a form of progesterone, a hormone that plays a role in the menstrual cycle and pregnancy. Progestin is used in combination with another hormone called estrogen in combined hormonal birth control pills, the vaginal ring, and the skin patch. It also can be used by itself in progestin-only pills and the birth control injection.
The third form of highly effective reversible contraception available in the United States is a contraceptive implant, Implanon, which is effective for 3 years after subcutaneous placement. 46 Similar to all progesterone-only methods, women using this method experience irregular vaginal bleeding.
