Wera Birth Control Information

As a prescription birth control pill, WeraTM (norethindrone/ethinyl estradiol) is licensed to prevent pregnancy in women of reproductive age. It works by stopping ovulation, altering the lining of the uterus, and changing the cervical mucus. Wera is a generic version of Modicon®.
 
This form of contraception comes in a pack containing 28 pills, including 21 active pills that contain both an estrogen and a progestin hormone and 7 inactive pills that do not contain any hormones. It is important to take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Make sure to take Wera consistently, as missing doses can increase your risk of pregnancy. Side effects may include nausea, breakthrough bleeding, and bloating.
 
Before starting this birth control pill, the safety information associated with using Wera should be reviewed with your healthcare provider. This contraceptive may not be the best choice for some women, including those who are taking certain medications or women who have a history of depression.
