More Info on Wera Indications

How Does This Contraceptive Work?

Wera is a combined oral contraceptive, the most common type of birth control pill. These products contain a combination of two different types of hormones: estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) and progestin (norethindrone).
Wera primarily prevents pregnancy by stopping ovulation (the maturation and release of eggs from the ovaries). However, it also prevents pregnancy in two other, minor ways. It alters the cervical mucus (the fluid of the cervix, which is the lower, narrow part of the uterus that is connected to the vagina), making it more difficult for sperm to enter the uterus. It also alters the lining of the uterus (the endometrium), making it less receptive to an embryo.

Is It Safe for Children to Use Wera?

Wera is approved for use in women of reproductive age. This means that it is not approved for use in girls who have not had their first menstrual period.

Is Wera Used for Off-Label Reasons?

On occasion, your healthcare provider may recommend this product for something other than contraception. This is called an "off-label" use. At this time, off-label uses for Wera include treatment of the following conditions:
  • Heavy menstrual bleeding
  • Painful menstrual periods
  • Acne
  • Premenstrual dysphoric disorder (PMDD)
  • Irregular menstrual periods.
