    Which monophasic ( low estrogen- Ethinyl estradiol < 30) oral BCP would you prescribe for a healthy teenager who has a good insurance and has no restrictions?
    When would you prescribe a multiphasic one?
    Any advice would be appreciated. I can not find any good articles on this topic!!

    For birth control, OCPs are not really recommended for teenagers. It's much more common to recommend the depo shot or implant, because those you don't have to take it every day at the same time for it to be really effective.
