Doctors can help women find the right birth control pill. Some pills contain the same daily dose of hormones while some increase the amount of hormones the closer a woman gets to the end of a pill pack. Some pills, such as Seasonale or Seasonique, are popular because they cause women to have very few periods. Lybrel eliminates periods completely. Plan B is popular because it can be used after sexual intercourse to prevent ovulation.
