Aviane Dosing

Each pack of Aviane contains 28 pills. The standard dose of Aviane is one pill taken daily and at the same time each day. Following your Aviane dosing guidelines is very important -- not doing so could result in unintended pregnancy. If you are unsure what to do if you miss any pills, talk to your healthcare provider.

Aviane Dosing: An Introduction

There is only one standard dose of Aviane® (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dose unless your healthcare provider specifically instructs you to do so. Although Aviane is effective when taken as directed, not taking it correctly increases the risk of unintentional pregnancy.
 
(Aviane is equivalent to Alesse®, Falmina™, Lutera™, and Orsythiabirth control pills. The information in this article also applies to these medications.)
 

Aviane Dosing for Birth Control

Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet daily at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 28 days (four weeks). After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day. Do not wait any days between packs (this may take a little planning, since you will need a new pack on hand). The first 21 tablets contain the active ingredients. The last seven tablets contain no active ingredients. During this last week, your body gets a little break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period. Sometimes, you may have breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods. When this happens, keep taking the drug as usual.
