This review examined RTCs of progestin-only pills to assess differences in rates of efficacy, acceptability, and continuation. The authors found that there was insignificant evidence to compare these pills to each other or to compare them to combined oral contraceptives. Cochrane Database Syst Rev. 2013 Nov 13;11:CD007541.
