Information About Aviane and/or Equivalents
What is it?
Aviane is a birth control pill that prevents pregnancy. The pill is a combination of female hormones, levonorgestrel (progestin) and ethinyl estradiol (estrogen) that prevents ovulation, endometrial growth and maturing, and entry of sperm into the uterus. It is congested orally and is known to be more effective than other non-surgical methods.
Oral contraceptives are proven to be a high effective non-surgical method for birth control. This pill is manufactured by Teva Pharmaceuticals USA, Inc. It was approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for marketing and distribution in 2001.
Aviane contains a combination of two hormones, levonorgestrel under the class progestin, and ethinyl estradiol in the class of estrogen. This combination provides a negative feedback to gonadotropin released by pituitary, inhibiting the stimulation of ovulation.
Levonorgestrel is an emergency contraceptive commonly used to prevent pregnancy after unprotected sexual intercourse. It suppresses ovulation by blocking the release of the egg from the ovary or fertilization of the egg by sperm. It also reduces the lining of the endometrium to prevent effective implantation and development of pregnancy.
Ethinyl estradiol is an estrogen that accompanies progestin in regulating menopausal symptoms and prevents ovulation. It binds to the estrogen receptor complex and releases prolactin, which halts the production of gonadotropin and eventually the release of the egg.
This FDA-approved medication is safe and effective for pregnancy prevention or postcoital emergency contraception. The treatment should be initiated within 24 hours after the unprotected intercourse to reduce the risk of pregnancy.
It is also used to control irregular menstruation into a regular schedule.
Aviane comes in a packet of 21 orange “active” hormone tablets. It is also available as a 28-pill pack, which includes inactive pills to be taken during menstruation. It should be taken orally, beginning on the first day of period (either by visible bleeding or spotting) until the end of the third week. Patients should take the tablet at the same time every day.
To avoid nausea or discomfort, take the medication with food or milk.
After finishing one 21-day packet, avoid taking any medication for 7 days and resume with a new pack. After finishing one 28-day packet, start a new pack the following day.
- Irregular vaginal bleeding
- Breast soreness
- Fluid retention or edema
- Spotty skin darkening
- Change in appetite, headache, nervousness, depression

- Women who are having hyperlipidemias treatment should be monitored closely to keep their LDL levels under control.
- Discontinue the medication if the patient begins to show signs of jaundice.
- Patients who show depressive signs while taking the oral contraceptives should look into other alternative mode of contraception. If the patient has a history of depression, they should be carefully observed. Discontinue the contraceptive if the depression symptoms grow to a severe degree.
- Patients who wear contact lenses and notice changes in vision or lens tolerance should consult an ophthalmologist.
- Patients who suffer from diarrhea and/or vomiting may have reduced hormone absorption.
Avoid co-administration with selected drugs to avoid reduction of effectiveness. These may include antibiotics, anticonvulsants, and other drugs that increase the metabolism of contraceptive steroids, such as:
- Herbal medicine such as St. John’s wort;
- Barbiturates and phenytoin (Dilantin);
Frequently asked questions
How to store it
Aviane is available as 21 tablets or 28 tablets in blister card dispensers. Each blister card dispenser contains 21 orange active tablets.
Store the pack between 20°C to 25°C and keep out of the reach of children.
Are there alternative generic brand medications for Aviane?
This medication is available as a generic combination pill (ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel).
What is ovulation?
Ovulation occurs when an egg moves from the ovary and is ready for the fertilization. The vaginal mucus secretion increases to accommodate sperm’s entry. The endometrium, or the uterus wall, will thicken to receive the fertilized egg for implantation.
However, if fertilization fails to occur, the uterus wall sloughs off and falls as menstrual bleeding, and the cycle will be repeated.
The hormones progesterone and estrogen often work to thicken the cervical mucus and making it impenetrable to sperm.
What if I overdose?
If patients consume more than 1 pill in 24 hours, patients may experience nausea, breast tenderness, vomiting, abdominal pain and fatigue or depression. In rare occurrences, withdrawal bleeding may happen. If there is a case of overdosage, contact your healthcare provider or pharmacist.
What if I miss a dose?
If you miss a dose, the possibility of ovulation increases. If you miss 1 orange ‘active’ pill, take it as soon as you can and resume with the next pill at your regular schedule. This means you may take 2 pills in one day.
If you miss two days, take two pills on the day you remember and two pills on the next day.
However, it is advisable to use a back-up method during sexual intercourse such as condoms or foams as the efficacy of the oral contraceptive may decrease.
