More Instructions for Quasense

Effects of Quasense

Quasense was shown to be an effective birth control method in a large clinical trial. In this study, 1 or 2 out of every 100 women who used it for a year became pregnant. This is very effective, compared to many other methods of contraception. For instance, up to 14 percent of women using condoms for a year will become pregnant.
 

When and How to Use It

General considerations for when and how to use Quasense include the following:
 
  • The medication comes in tablet form. It is taken by mouth once a day.
     
  • You can take it with or without food. If the medication bothers your stomach, try taking it with food.
     
  • Each pack of Quasense contains 91 pills. Be sure to take them in order. Once you finish a pack, start a new pack right away. You will probably get your period during the last seven days of the pack.
     
  • It is normal to experience breakthrough bleeding or spotting between periods while taking Quasense. Keep taking the drug as normal.
     
  • It is very important that you take Quasense every day and 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.
     
  • 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 seven days.
     
  • For the medication to work properly, it must be taken as prescribed. Quasense will not work if you stop taking it.
