Seasonique Safety Information

Seasonique™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a birth control pill that is taken on a daily basis to prevent pregnancy. It is a combined oral contraceptive, which means it contains two different hormones (a progestin and an estrogen). Although most women tolerate this medication well, it is important to review the safety information for Seasonique with your healthcare provider before taking it.
Combined oral contraceptives are known to increase the risk of blood clots, strokes, and heart attacks. In order to help minimize these risks, tell your healthcare provider if you have ever had a blood clot, stroke, heart attack, or chest pain before using Seasonique. Safety concerns also apply to women who are obese. Birth control pills may be less effective in these women, and side effects are more likely.
