- Will Vestura Make Me Depressed?
Depression and mood changes are always a slight risk with any kind of hormone intake, including birth control. Your reactions to the hormones are all very personal. However, there’s a good chance that Vestura will regulate your hormones and improve your mood! Birth control is available in many different forms, with many different hormone levels — the pros at Nurx can help you navigate the options and find the best fit.
- Will Vestura Cause Weight Gain?
It’s a long-held belief that birth control pills cause weight gain. However, studies have shown that this is mostly just a myth. It’s water retention that misleads women into thinking this. Take the proper steps and it should not be a long-term problem.
- Is There Any Other Important Information to Know?
Remember that other drugs, even ones that are available without a prescription, can cause a bad reaction when mixed with Vestura. Some substances, such as St. John’s wort, can cause Vestura to become less effective at preventing pregnancy. When speaking with your doctor or Nurx advisor, it’s especially important to discuss anything you’re taking for cancer, HIV, seizures, chronic hepatitis C, or depression.
- Are There Risks of Side Effects?
Almost any oral contraceptive poses a risk of side effects, including Vestura. Fortunately, the odds of having problems are very slim. Some of the minor side effects that have been noted include nausea, vomiting, headaches, breast tenderness, elevated blood sugar levels or blood pressure, and swelling of the ankles or feet. Serious side effects are extremely rare but do exist. These include migraines and severe headaches, heart disease, blood clots, shortness of breath, slurred speech, confusion, depression, and vision problems. Going over your medical history and anything you’re taking with one of our Nurx professionals can help you sidestep potential problems.
- What Precautions Should I Keep in Mind Before Taking Vestura?
Some women experience allergic reactions to either the hormones or the inactive ingredients in Vestura, though it’s pretty rare. Symptoms include those that are typical of allergic reactions — hives, rashes, itching, dizziness, trouble breathing, and swelling of the face, tongue, or throat. You should be sure to discuss your medical history with your physician or one of our knowledgeable Nurx consultants before starting on Vestura. Certain medical conditions are especially important to discuss, such as heart problems, blood clotting issues, cancer, diabetes, and high blood pressure. There are many types of birth control out there — we can help you choose.
- Is It Easy to Get Vestura?
Yes, it is. Since Vestura is an FDA-approved generic version of Yaz, a brand that’s safe, effective, and popular, you can get Vestura at just about any pharmacy in the country. A prescription is required, but don’t worry — we can provide one right over the internet. We work with real doctors in every state we cover. Since it’s a generic, Vestura is quite affordable. It’s even covered by health insurance, and here at Nurx, we have a long list of insurance providers we accept. We’re constantly working on expanding that list. If you’re looking for the ultimate in convenience, privacy, and discretion, give us a try!
- How Does Vestura Prevent Pregnancy?
Vestura is a combination-type pill that uses a blend of estrogen and progestin to trick your body into thinking it’s already pregnant. That way, real pregnancy won’t happen. Simply take your pill once a day, at the same time each day. Many women claim that taking Vestura before bed or after dinner helps with nausea and other minor discomforts.
