Lessina Birth Control Information

Women have many different options when it comes to birth control pills, and Lessina® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is just one of the drugs available. As a combined hormonal contraceptive, it works by altering the cervical mucus and the lining of the uterus. Lessina should be taken once daily, preferably at the same time each day.
Most women have no problems with Lessina; however, this birth control pill may not be right for you. Inform your healthcare provider about any medical conditions you have before taking it (for example, high blood pressure), as well as if you smoke or take any other medications.
