Taytulla is the first (and only) birth control pill that comes in an easy-to-take soft gel capsule. The capsules come with a helpful dose of iron that’s included in the four placebo pills that are taken during your period — when blood loss saps your body of this important nutrient. Taytulla is also quite low in estrogen to help reduce the chances of side effects. It’s best for nonsmokers under 35.

WHAT OUR PATIENTS ARE SAYING
- Will Taytulla Affect My Period?
Most women experience lighter, shorter periods when taking hormone-based birth control such as Taytulla. You may notice spotting between periods, especially when you first start taking it. If this condition continues, reach out to your doctor or Nurx professional for advice.
- Will Taytulla Help With My Iron Deficiency?
While the iron in Taytulla is helpful, it's not meant to be a treatment for any medical condition. Keep this in mind if you've been diagnosed with anemia or serious iron deficiency.
- What Else Should I Know?
Certain drugs can interfere with Taytulla's ability to prevent pregnancy. Some to watch out for include medications for hepatitis C, seizures, cancer, depression, and pain control. Before you get started on Taytulla, tell your physician or Nurx advisor about anything you're currently taking, even if they're over-the-counter meds, herbal supplements, or recreational drugs.

These include severe headaches or stomach pain, lumps in the breast, blood clotting, strokes, slurred speech, confusion, shortness of breath, high blood pressure, yellowed eyes or skin, and heart disease. Smoking increases the risk of side effects, including serious ones.

Taytulla is what's known as a combination-style pill. It uses two hormones, estrogen and progestin.

One pack of Taytulla includes 24 pink pills and four maroon-colored ones that contain iron but no hormones.Take Taytulla every day, around the same time each day. Most women prefer taking their pill before bed or with dinner to cut down on any nausea they might experience.
