There are no more popular pills than others. Combination pills which refers to those that are a combination of estrogen and progestin are popular but there are many brands. Some of the brands have lower estrogen levels than others. This does not mean that they are any less effective at all but are prescribed to women for various reasons, when their health is taken into consideration. Don't look to get a certain brand because it's popular because it might not be the right dose for you.. only your doctor can decide and adjust later if needed.
