Juleber is a daily birth control pill that is made to be taken orally. Women who take Juleber at the same time every day can significantly reduce their risk of pregnancy. Juleber can also regulate menstrual flow, which results in lighter periods and lessened cramps in some women. Our team at Nurx™ can prescribe Juleber at special request or can offer the generic equivalent Apri for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $20 without insurance.
- How Does Juleber Work?
As a combination pill, Juleber works in three ways. It prevents ovulation, blocks sperm from passing through the thick cervical mucus, and creates a thin uterine lining that prevents any fertilized eggs from latching on. These three steps mean that Juleber can be more than 90% effective when taken correctly.
Juleber should be stored in a cool dry place where you can access it easily. In order for it to be effective, women should take the pill at the same time every day. Skipping pills or taking them erratically could increase your risk of getting pregnant.
- Where Is Juleber Available?
You do need a prescription from your doctor in order to start Juleber. From there, you should be able to easily find this birth control pill at pharmacies near you. Juleber is known as an affordable form of birth control and may be covered entirely by your health insurance provider.
If you are unable to get Juleber or one of its generic alternatives in your area, check out our services at Nurx. We ship to states across the country and may be able to get you the birth control you need.
- What Precautions Should I Take Before Starting Juleber?
Tell your doctor if you have any allergies or are on any medication before you start taking Juleber. The hormones and active ingredients in this birth control option may trigger an allergic reaction or cancel out other medications that you are taking.
- Are There Any Known Side Effects?
Every woman is different, which means that every person has different reactions to the active ingredients in Juleber. There are a few common side effects that you may notice, including bloating, breast tenderness, swelling of the feet or ankles, spotting or irregular periods, or moodiness. These symptoms are typically mild and may pass within a few months.
Stop taking Juleber and seek medical attention immediately if you notice severe side effects like depression, lumps in your breast, abdominal pain, sudden heavy bleeding, migraines, and yellowing of the skin or eyes. While these side effects are rare, they may be signs of a bigger problem.
- Does Juleber Cause Weight Gain?
Some women may notice minor changes in weight while taking birth control pills like Juleber. This brand of pill does not make you more likely to experience weight gain than other oral contraceptives.
- Does Juleber Help With Acne?
You may notice lighter acne symptoms when you start taking Juleber because of hormone regulation. However, Juleber is not approved exclusively as an acne treatment.
- What Else Should I Know About Taking Juleber?
If you become nauseous or experience diarrhea shortly after taking Juleber, switch to backup birth control (like condoms) until you can take the pill again. If you experience regular nausea when taking Juleber, try taking the pill at night with dinner or before you go to bed. Tell your doctor if your symptoms continue as they may want to switch your birth control methods.
If you skipped a pill while taking Juleber, take two the next day. If you missed two pills or more while taking Juleber, you may need to take a pregnancy test.
Juleber is not meant to terminate a pregnancy. Stop taking Juleber and see your doctor if you discover that you are pregnant.
