Women Home > Beyaz Birth Control Information

BeyazTM (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol/levomefolate calcium) is a prescription birth control pill. It can be used for preventing pregnancy, treating symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD), and treating acne. Beyaz is the first birth control pill to provide a daily dose of folate, a B vitamin that helps prevent birth defects.
This medication is taken by mouth once a day, at the same time each day. It's important to take Beyaz consistently, as missing doses can increase your risk of pregnancy. Headaches, breast tenderness, and vaginal yeast infections are some of the potential side effects of this form of birth control.
Before starting Beyaz, the safety information for this birth control pill should be reviewed with your healthcare provider. This product is not suitable for everyone, so tell your healthcare provider about all your current medications and any medical conditions you have, such as high blood pressure or diabetes. This will help ensure your safety and reduce your risk of complications.
