Sronyx Birth Control

Women have many different options when it comes to birth control. Sronyx™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) belongs to that popular category known as oral contraceptives. It is actually a generic version of Levlite®. This product contains two different hormones that work to prevent pregnancy by stopping ovulation. It also alters the lining of the uterus and the cervical mucus.
When taking Sronyx for birth control, it's very important that you take this medication every day, preferably at the same time each day. Missing doses can increase the risk of an unintentional pregnancy. If you forget to take a pill, your instructions will depend on how many pills you missed and where you are in the cycle.
