Loryna Birth Control Information

If you are considering a birth control pill, your healthcare provider may prescribe Loryna™ (drospirenone/ethinyl estradiol). It is the generic version of Yaz® and is a combined hormonal contraceptive that contains two different hormones (an estrogen and a progestin). It is also approved to treat acne and symptoms of premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD).
 
This birth control pill is taken every day, at the same time every day. Do not take it late or miss doses, as it may increase your risk for unintentional pregnancy. Although many women tolerate it well, side effects are possible and can include nausea, headaches, and breast pain.
 
Before using this form of birth control, review the safety information for Loryna. This pill may not be suitable for all women, so make sure your healthcare provider is aware if you have any other medical conditions (such as migraines or depression) or are taking any other type of medicine (including nonprescription medications, herbal supplements, or vitamins).
