Zovia Birth Control Pill

Women who are interested in taking a birth control pill may consider Zovia® (ethynodiol diacetate/ethinyl estradiol). This product comes in two different strengths and works by preventing ovulation, changing the cervical mucus, and changing the lining of the uterus. Zovia should be taken once a day, preferably at the same time each day. Missing doses increases the risk of pregnancy, so tell your healthcare provider if you are having trouble remembering to take your birth control pill; you may need to consider a different form of contraception.
