Velivet is a fairly unique birth control pill as it’s a third-generation desogestrel pill that’s also triphasic. You can find a monophasic pill with the same hormones, and triphasic pills with different hormones, but these are all slightly different from Velivet.
What makes Velivet stand out from other pills are the other benefits besides protecting against pregnancy. You’re much less likely to get side effects on Velivet than with other birth control pills. These side effects include vaginal dryness, light or infrequent periods, appetite increase, weight gain, leg cramps, mood changes, skin problems, and low sex drive.
