Anon - I'm not sure that I understand your question and why you say you are scared about trying to have a baby later if you take birth control pills now.

Birth control pills come in three types. Monophasic pills contain the same amount of estrogen and progestin in all of the active pills in a pack. Biphasic and triphasic pills contain different dosages of progestin or estrogen throughout the pill pack. Compared with monophasics, these pills reduce the total hormone dosage a woman receives and are thought to better match the body’s natural menstrual cycle.

The Triphasic pills contain three different doses of hormones in the active pills (changing every seven days during the first three weeks of pills).

No single pill or pill type rates as the "best" one. Experts consider all combination pills equally effective in preventing pregnancy, provided the pills are used appropriately. The use of birth control pills does not leave you infertile or unable to become pregnant in the future.

Hope this addresses your concerns. Pat
