Lessina is a combined oral contraceptive that contains both an estrogen and a progestin. It prevents pregnancy by stopping ovulation and changing the cervical mucus and endometrium. Lessina, which is available by prescription only, comes in a pack of 28 pills that must be taken in order. Most people tolerate this form of birth control well, but potential side effects include nausea, headaches, and acne.
