Enskyce is a daily birth control pill that is meant to regulate hormones and menstruation symptoms while preventing pregnancy. The packet contains 21 active pills which you should start after your period ends, followed by seven inactive (or sugar) pills. This allows your body to continue its menstrual flow while you stay in the habit of taking a daily pill. In order to be effective, Enskyce should be taken every day at the same time.
Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Enskyce at special request or can offer the generic equivalent Apri for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $20 without insurance. To learn more about getting birth control from Nurx, click here.
- How Does Enskyce Work?
Enskyce uses two hormones, a progestin and an estrogen, to regulate your hormones. The birth control pill does this in three ways: it prevents ovulation, blocks sperm by building up your cervical mucus, and creates a thin uterine lining. In this last part, the thin lining prevents any fertilized eggs from latching to the wall of the uterus. A thinner lining also results in lighter periods and lessened cramps for many women.
- Where Is Enskyce Available?
Consult your doctor before you start Enskyce as you will need a prescription in order to take this birth control pill. Enskyce is readily found in most pharmacies, so you shouldn't have a problem finding it.
Most health insurance plans cover Enskyce; however, not all will. If this is the case for your coverage, our team at Nurx may be able to help. We offer affordable birth control options and generic alternatives to Enskyce.
Our company can also help if you can't locate Enskyce nearby. We ship to several states across the country, making birth control access easy.
- What Precautions Should I Take Before Starting Enskyce?
Talk to your doctor before starting Enskyce. Let them know about any allergies that you have or any medication that you are on. Your doctor will recommend a birth control option that works with your allergies so you don't have a reaction.
Telling your doctor about existing medication is particularly important because two medications can cancel each other out, increasing your chances of getting pregnant while also causing problems for other conditions you have. Your health and safety are the top priority.
- Are There Any Known Side Effects?
Everyone's body reacts differently to different medications, and women who take Enskyce are no different. A few side effects of taking Enskyce include bloating, breast tenderness, swelling of the feet or ankles, spotting in between periods, and moodiness. These side effects are typically mild and will likely stop after a while.
You may, however, notice more severe side effects while taking Enskyce. Seek medical help immediately if you experience a rapid heartbeat, trouble breathing, abdominal pain, sudden heavy bleeding, lumps in your breast, dizziness, confusion, and depression.
- Does Enskyce Cause Weight Gain?
Enskyce will not directly cause weight gain; however, some women may notice that they gain a few pounds when they start taking Enskyce. This may be the result of hormonal changes or temporary weight gain from water.
- Does Enskyce Help With Acne?
Enskyce has been know to improve acne as your hormones are better regulated while on the pill. However, it is not approved as a direct acne treatment.
- What Else Should I Know About Taking Enskyce?
Enskyce is not effective at preventing sexually transmitted infections (STIs) and diseases. These include infections like HIV and HPV. Use additional protection while having sex, including condoms, in order to prevent the spread of these diseases to you or your partner.
Enskyce is also not made to terminate pregnancies. Stop taking Enskyce and see your doctor if you think you are pregnant. If you missed two days while taking Enskyce and then skipped a period, you may be pregnant.
