Cryselle Birth Control Pill

If you are a woman seeking contraception, your healthcare provider may prescribe a birth control pill called Cryselle® (norgestrel/ethinyl estradiol). This form of contraception is known as a combined oral contraceptive, as it contains both an estrogen and a progestin hormone.
 
Cryselle comes in the form of a tablet and is taken every day, at the same time each day. After finishing one pack, immediately start a new one the next day. Although most women tolerate it well, this oral contraceptive is not suitable for everyone. Possible side effects include nausea, breast tenderness, headaches, and acne.
 
This product does not protect against HIV, AIDS, or other sexually transmitted diseases (STDs). In many cases, women are advised to use condoms in addition to Cryselle.
