Main types of contraceptive pill blister packs

The combined oral contraceptive pill is a contraceptive method that has two main presentations:

Blister of 21 tablets
all tablets have active ingredient. The woman must take a week's break without taking any pills between one blister and the next.
Blister of 28 tablets
they have 21 pills with active ingredient and 7 placebo pills (without hormones) so that the woman can take a hormonal break, but without losing the continuity of taking a daily pill.

In addition, most birth control pill packages simulate a calendar. This makes it easier for women to keep track of their pills and avoid forgetting to take them.
