Information About Linessa and/or Equivalents
Linessa is an oral birth control prescription that contains desogestrel and ethinyl estradiol, a combination of both progestin and estrogen hormones. It prevents pregnancy by obstructing ovulation, or the release of an egg from the ovary, as well as changing the thickness of the vaginal mucus to slow sperm movement. This pill is also suitable for regulating the menstrual cycle.
Each pack of this medication contains 21 or 28 pills and is to be taken for the whole course. Linessa does not protect you against sexually transmitted infections (STIs) such as HIV, chlamydia, and gonorrhea.
Desogestrel elucidates progestogenic activity and antigonadotropic effects. It thickens the mucus layer of the cervix and thins the lining of the uterus. This makes it difficult for the sperm to enter the uterus and fertilize an egg, as well as for the attachment of a fertilized egg onto the endometrium. Ethinyl estradiol is often used in combination birth control medication, as it inhibits ovulation.
This medication may also decrease painful periods, decrease the risk of ovarian cysts, and treat acne.
This medication is for pregnancy control and menstrual regulation.
21-pill pack: Take 1 active tablet every day for 21 days. Begin the next pack after a 7-day break.
28-pill pack: Take 1 active tablet every day for 21 days. After this period, take 1 inactive pill daily for 7 days. Begin the next pack after finishing the whole course.
For the first 7 days of the first cycle of pill use, include a second method of birth control, such as latex condoms, as a precaution.
The common side effects of Linessa include:
- Spotting or light bleeding;
- Slight nausea;
- Mood changes;
- Breast tenderness;
