Amethia Lo Birth Control Information

Women who want to prevent pregnancy may consider taking AmethiaTM Lo (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). This prescription birth control pill works by stopping ovulation, altering the lining of the uterus, and changing the cervical mucus. It is a generic version of LoSeasonique®.
 
This extended-cycle contraceptive contains 91 pills, which allows for fewer menstrual periods (only four each year). It is important to take these pills in order. Also, make sure to take Amethia Lo consistently, as missing doses can increase your risk of pregnancy. Possible side effects include nausea, headaches, and back pain.
 
Before starting Amethia Lo, the safety information for this birth control pill should be reviewed with your healthcare provider. Because this contraceptive is not suitable for everyone, your healthcare provider needs to be aware of all other medications you are taking and any medical conditions you have, such as a history of blood clots, heart problems, or migraines.
