Philith is a type of birth control pill used to prevent pregnancy. It is a generic medication equivalent to Ovcon 35. As a monophasic birth control pill, Philith contains only one strength of hormones in each pack. This prescription contraceptive works by stopping ovulation, altering the cervical mucus, and changing the lining of the uterus. Possible side effects include acne, nausea, and headaches.
What Is Philith?Philith™ (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol) is a prescription oral contraceptive, commonly known as a birth control pill. It is a type of "monophasic" birth control pill, which means that there is only one strength of hormones in each pack. This product is unlike the newer biphasic or triphasic pills, which have different phases of pills that contain different strengths of hormones in each pack. Philith is a generic version of Ovcon® 35.
Are There Side Effects?Just like any medicine, Philith may cause side effects. However, not everyone who takes the contraceptive will experience problems. In fact, most women tolerate it quite well.
- Breast tenderness
- Nausea or vomiting
- Breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods.
