When and How to Use This Contraceptive

Some general considerations to keep in mind while taking this contraceptive include the following:
  • Kurvelo comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
  • Each pack of Kurvelo contains 28 pills. Make sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new pack the next day. You will probably start your period during the last seven days of the pack.
  • It is important to take Kurvelo every day, at the same time each day. Try to pick a time that will be easy to remember, such as at bedtime or breakfast. If you have trouble remembering, please talk with your healthcare provider, as missing pills increases your risk of pregnancy.
  • You can take Kurvelo with food or on an empty stomach. If the drug seems to bother your stomach, try taking it with food.
  • Make sure 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.
  • For the contraceptive to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed.
