Prionelle is a 28-tablet contraceptive packet that works to prevent pregnancy. Women who are on this pill will take it daily at the same time to regulate hormones and reduce period symptoms. Along with preventing pregnancy, Prionelle may also lighten your flow, reduce your cramps, and help with mood swings.
Our team at Nurx can prescribe Prionelle at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Lutera for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $15 without insurance. We can also help you learn about this birth control option (and available alternatives) can help you choose the best contraceptive method for you.
How Does Prionelle Work?
Prionelle uses two active hormones — an estrogen and a progestogen — to prevent pregnancy. These two hormones work to create a thin uterine line that expels any fertilized eggs while creating a thick cervical mucus that blocks sperm from fertilizing any eggs in the first place. Finally, Prionelle also limits your ovulation, so there are no eggs to be fertilized in the first place.
Prionelle is most effective when it is used correctly. Take the pill at the same time each day every day, and store your packet in a cool, dry place. If you follow these steps, your birth control can be up to 90% effective.
How Can I Get Prionelle?
In order to start taking Prionelle, you need a prescription from your doctor. However, once you have that, it should be fairly easy to find this pill in most local pharmacies. If you cannot easily access Prionelle or your pharmacy can't order it, our team at Nurx may be able to help. We have prescriptions similar to Prionelle that can help you prevent pregnancy.
Prionelle is meant to be an affordable birth control option. It will likely be covered by your healthcare provider with a minimal co-pay, or you may need to pay out of pocket.
What Are the Precautions Associated With Prionelle?
Let your doctor know about any allergies, sensitivities, or previous medication that you are on before starting Prionelle. This can decrease the chances of negative symptoms or allergic reactions to the medication. Plus, the active ingredients in Prionelle could cancel out your other medications, putting your health at risk. Your doctor can recommend Prionelle or alternatives that match your lifestyle and needs better.
What Are the Side Effects of Prionelle?
Everyone's body is different, which means you may react to this medication in unexpected ways. Most birth control side effects are mild and pass within a few months. A few common side effects of Prionelle include breast tenderness, headaches, spotting between periods, weight changes, and mood swings. A few severe side effects that you may experience include blood clots, chest pains, severe depression, swelling, severe pain in the abdomen, dizziness, or rash. If you experience these symptoms, stop taking Prionelle immediately and switch to back-up birth control (like condoms) until you can see your doctor.
What If I Miss a Pill?
If you forget to take Prionelle, switch to back-up birth control and take the forgotten pill as soon as you remember — even if it means taking two pills at once. If you miss a pill and then skip a period, consider taking a pregnancy test. Stop taking Prionelle if you become pregnant.
Does Prionelle Cause Acne?
t is unlikely that Prionelle will make your acne worse. In fact, it may improve your acne symptoms. However, if your acne does worsen after you start Prionelle, talk to your doctor to see if they can find a better option.
Does Prionelle Lead to Weight Gain?
There is no data showing that birth control pills cause weight gain. Some women may experience changes in appetite when on the pill, but that does not necessarily correlate to changes in weight.
