What If I Miss a Dose of Myzilra?

Missing doses of Myzilra increases the risk of pregnancy. What you should do depends on how many tablets you have missed and where exactly you are in your cycle (see Myzilra Dosage). Refer to the patient information that comes with each package for more information on what to do, or consult your healthcare provider.
 

How Does This Contraceptive Work?

Myzilra is a combined oral contraceptive, which means it contains two different types of hormones. It contains both an estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and a progestin (levonorgestrel). Combined oral contraceptives are the most commonly used type of birth control pill. In general, combined oral contraceptives are more effective than progestin-only birth control pills.
 
Myzilra primarily prevents pregnancy by stopping ovulation (the maturation and release of eggs from the ovaries). However, it also prevents pregnancy in two other, minor ways. It alters the cervical mucus (the fluid of the cervix, which is the lower, narrow part of the uterus that is connected to the vagina), making it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus. It also alters the lining of the uterus (the endometrium), making it less receptive to an embryo.
 
As a triphasic birth control pill, Myzilra contains three different "phases" of pills in each pack, plus the last week of pills that do not contain any active ingredients. Each week has a different amount of hormones. This is why it is important to take the pills in the correct order.
