One White One Blue Pill Watson

Found pills in my daughter's room. Small, one white and one blue pill, both say WATSON on one side . Blue says 50/30 and white says 75/40. Can you please tell me what they are? Thanks ## These are birth control tablets from a package of birth control called Preven, the numbes are the dose of hormones in the pills for that week. The Blue pill is the starter week and the White pill is from the second week. Here's an image of them, though they are in the package so you can't see the markings, but I did confirm this with two professional sites: Preven Image Click Here
