Myzilra is a birth control medication that uses a combination of progestin and estrogen in different stages to prevent the release of an egg and to change the vaginal fluids. This reduces the chance of pregnancy. Myzilra is also often prescribed to reduce the occurrence of ovarian cysts and to treat hormone-based acne.
Myzilra is not ideal for women who are pregnant or breastfeeding. Our Nurx™ experts can evaluate your health history and help you choose the right birth control medication for you.
- How Does Myzilra Work?
Myzilra is a three-phase combination-type birth control medication that is taken daily. Phase one consists of six beige tablets. Phase two includes five white tablets. Phase three is 10 light-yellow tablets. After you complete phase three, you will then take seven days of light-green tablets which do not contain any active ingredients and are meant to be a reminder. In order for Myzilra to be effective, it is important that you take your pill at the same time each day.
- Is Myzilra Easy to Get?
Yes! Myzilra is a popular birth control medication that contains hormones that can prevent pregnancy and offer you lighter and less painful periods. You will need a prescription to fill Myzilra though. Here at Nurx™, we make it so women have accessible and affordable healthcare available to them. We can connect you with a remote Nurx™ doctor who is licensed in your home state. Then, we will ship your prescription discreetly to your mailbox, making the entire process easy and fast.
Nurx™ also works with most health insurance companies. If you don't have health insurance, one of our Nurx™ healthcare providers will be happy to help you find a birth control medication that fits in your budget.
- What Precautions Should I Take Before Taking Myzilra?
Before taking Myzilra, you should discuss your health history and current medications with your doctor or a Nurx™ healthcare professional. Allergic reactions to progestin or estrogen are rare but possible. An allergic reaction can include symptoms like rash, itching, facial swelling, and difficulty breathing.
It is also possible for Myzilra to raise your blood pressure and blood sugar levels. If you have a history of high blood pressure or you are diabetic, you may need to check your levels more often when on Myzilra. Your Nurx™ healthcare provider can help you evaluate any other precautions you should take.
- What Are the Side Effects of Myzilra?
Although unlikely, it is possible to experience side effects with Myzilra which include nausea, vomiting, tender breasts, fluid retention, and weight changes. Severe side effects have been reported, but they are extremely rare and include blood clots, migraine, and vision changes.
- Can I Take Myzilra With Other Medications?
You can safely take Myzilra with most over-the-counter and prescription medications. However, some medications may like St. Johns wort and some HIV drugs may interfere with Myzilra and its ability to prevent pregnancy so it is important to share your current medications with your Nurx™ healthcare provider. You should avoid the use of aromatase inhibitors, some chronic Hepatitis C medications, and some anti-seizure medications.
- Does Myzilra Cause Weight Gain?
The idea that all birth control medications cause weight gain is a common misconception. Some fluid retention when you first begin Myzilra is possible but that should go away as your body adjusts to the hormones.
- Does Myzilra Help With Acne?
Birth control medications, including Myzilra, can help to control hormone-based acne. Some types of acne come from a hormonal imbalance. The progestin and estrogen in Myzilra can help to combat severe hormone-based acne.
