Gianvi Dosage

The standard dosage of Gianvi is one pill taken once a day, at the same time every day. You can start the pills on the first day of your period or on the first Sunday after your period starts. If you miss any doses, it increases your risk of pregnancy. Therefore, it's important to know what to do if you miss any pills.

An Introduction to Your Dose of Gianvi

There is only one standard dose of Gianvi™ (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol). As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so.

Gianvi Dosing for Birth Control

Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet 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 first 24 tablets (which are pink) contain the active ingredients. The last four (the white tablets) do not contain any active ingredients. By taking these last four tablets, your body gets a break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period.
When you take Gianvi for the first time, you can start it either on the first day of your period or on the first Sunday after your period starts. If you start Gianvi on the first day of your period (a "day 1 start"), you do not need any backup contraception.
If you choose a "Sunday start," you need to use a backup method of contraception (such as condoms) for the first week. If the first day of your period happens to be on a Sunday, treat this as a "day 1 start" (no backup needed).
If you switch from another type of birth control pill, start taking Gianvi on the day you would normally start a new pack of birth control pills (no backup contraception is necessary).
