As a type of birth control pill, Dasetta is prescribed to help prevent pregnancy. It works by stopping ovulation, changing the cervical mucus, and altering the lining of the uterus. Acne, headaches, and nausea are some of the possible side effects. This medication comes in two different versions, which are generic forms of Ortho-Novum 7/7/7 and Ortho-Novum 1/35.
