Quartette Birth Control Information

QuartetteTM (levonorgestrel/ethinyl estradiol) is a prescription medication used for preventing pregnancy. Information about this particular birth control pill should be reviewed with your healthcare provider prior to use in order to help ensure the drug's effectiveness.
 
This combined oral contraceptive contains two different hormones (estrogen and progestin) and primarily works by stopping ovulation in a woman. As an extended-cycle birth control pill, each pack contains 91 pills and you will only get your period once every three months.
 
This contraceptive comes in tablet form and is taken by mouth once a day. It is important to take this pill every day, at the same time each day, as missing doses increases your risk of an unintentional pregnancy.
 
Just like any medication, Quartette may cause side effects. Information on these and other safety concerns should be discussed with your healthcare provider. Some of the possible side effects include headaches, nausea, and acne.
