Falmina Birth Control Information

Available by prescription only, FalminaTM (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a type of birth control pill that is approved to prevent pregnancy in women of reproductive age. It works by stopping ovulation, altering the lining of the uterus, and changing the cervical mucus. Falmina is a generic version of Alesse®.
 
This contraceptive comes in a pack containing 28 pills, including 21 active pills and 7 inactive pills that do not contain any active ingredients. It is important to take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Make sure to take Falmina consistently, as missing doses can increase your risk of pregnancy. Side effects may include acne, breakthrough bleeding, and breast tenderness.
 
Before starting Falmina, the safety information for this birth control pill should be reviewed with your healthcare provider.
