Enpresse Birth Control Pills

Women who are trying to prevent pregnancy may be interested in the birth control pill Enpresse® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). This medication is a "triphasic" pill, meaning each pack of Enpresse contains three different "phases" of tablets, each with different amounts of hormones.
To ensure the effectiveness of the medication, dosing instructions must be followed exactly as prescribed. Take one tablet once a day, at the same time each day. In addition, it's important you know exactly what to do if you miss any pills. In some circumstances, you may need to use a backup method of contraception (such as condoms) for a week.
Some of the most commonly reported side effects of this drug include breast tenderness, acne, and spotting between periods. However, most women are able to take it without any problems.
