Myzilra Dosage

There is only one standard dosage for women who are taking Myzilra. This prescription contraceptive comes in a pack that contains 28 pills. One pill is taken every day, at the same time every day. Make sure you know exactly what to do if you forget to take a pill, as missing doses increases your risk of pregnancy.

An Introduction to Your Dose of Myzilra

Myzilra™ (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a prescription birth control pill. As with other birth control pills, there is only one standard dose of Myzilra. As always, do not adjust your dosage unless your healthcare provider specifically tells you to do so. While birth control pills are quite effective when taken correctly, their effectiveness decreases significantly if you take them incorrectly.
 

Myzilra Dosing Guidelines

Myzilra is a "triphasic" birth control pill, which means that there are three different phases of pills, plus the last phase of the inactive pills. These pills contain different amounts of hormones and must be taken in the correct order. This is why it is important to keep the pills in the original packaging.
 
Starting at the beginning of the pack, take one tablet daily at the same time each day. Each pack will last for 28 days. After you finish one pack, immediately start a new one the next day, without letting any days pass in between packs (this may take a little planning, as you will need a new pack on hand).
 
The first 21 tablets contain the active ingredients, and the last 7 tablets do not contain any active ingredients. During this last week, your body gets a break from the hormones, allowing you to have a period; this is not a real period, just withdrawal bleeding from the absence of the hormones.
