Vyfemla

Are you looking for a highly effective birth control option that can help you get better regularity with your periods? Why not consider Vyfemla of your birth control needs? At Nurx™, we love how Vyfemla can reduce blood loss and pain during your menstrual cycle while effectively protecting you against unplanned pregnancy. It is also a great option for women who have struggled with acne when using other hormonal birth control methods. Our team at Nurx can prescribe Vyfemla at special request, or can offer the generic equivalent Balziva for as low as $0 with insurance or as little as $20 without insurance.

FAQ

  • How Does Vyfemla Prevent Pregnancy?

    Vyfemla is one of the combined hormonal birth control options that work by preventing you from ovulating and making an inhospitable environment in the event ovulation occurs. If ovulation does occur, the pill will thicken the mucus around the cervix, making it almost impossible for sperm to get through to reach the egg. In the unlikely event that fertilization does occur, your uterine lining will be too thin to allow for proper implantation.

    When taking Vyfemla, you will take one active pill a day for 21 days and may or may not take the seven inactive pills before starting a new pack. To make sure your pills stay effective, you should always keep them stored at room temperature. You should also keep it out of reach of young children.

  • How Can You Get Vyfemla?

    Vyfemla is available as an affordable option for preventing unwanted pregnancy. This is a generic option and is available from Nurx for only $20 per pack if you do not have insurance or for as little as $0 per pack with health insurance coverage. The pill is covered by most insurance companies and is also widely available at many local pharmacies as well as online health care providers such as Nurx. Vyfemla does require a prescription to obtain from any pharmacy.

  • Are There Any Precautions That Need to Be Taken When Using Vyfemla?

    While Vyfemla is considered a safe and effective option for most women, in some cases you will need to proceed with caution as underlying conditions can lead to problems when using Vyfemla. As with any type of medication, you should always discuss the risk with your health care provider to determine if it is the right medication for your specific health situation.

    You will need to discuss with your doctor your complete medical history and any previous complications such as a personal or family history of blood clots or clotting disorders, elevated blood pressures, cancer, high cholesterol, diabetes, gallbladder problems, irregular heartbeat, migraines, or depression. You will also want to discuss your previous issues with pregnancy or other hormonal birth control options such as kidney or liver disease, swelling, stroke, or unexplained bleeding.

    Women with diabetes may experience spikes in their blood sugar, so it is important to have your blood sugar levels checked regularly, and your health care provider should monitor those results. If you have increased thirst or urination, talk with your health care provider about adjusting the levels of your diabetes medicine.

    You will also need to discuss with your health care provider if you plan to have surgery or may become immobile for a period of time. It is recommended that when taking this medication, you use sunscreen and avoid tanning beds.

  • What Are the Possible Side Effects of Taking Vyfemla?

    While Vyfemla is well-tolerated by most women who take it, there can be both minor and serious side effects with use. The most common side effects that you may experience when taking Vyfemla are related to a sudden increase in hormone levels. Once your body adjusts to these hormone levels, these side effects are likely to subside. This can take between two and three months. If the symptoms persist past this point or seem to be getting worse, then you should contact your health care provider.

    The most common side effects include headache, bloating, swelling, nausea, weight change, spotting or missed periods, and breast tenderness.

    There are also serious side effects that can be associated with Vyfemla, though these are rare and often linked to underlying conditions. Symptoms that you need to closely watch for include breast lumps, worsening depression, severe pain in the abdominal area, significant changes in your vaginal bleeding, and yellowing eyes or skin. Extremely rare side effects that require immediate medical attention include blood clots, heart attack, or stroke. If you have symptoms of any of these conditions, you should seek emergency care.

    While allergic reactions are very rare, they can occur and will present with rashes, difficulty breathing, itching, and swelling.

  • Does Vyfemla Interact Negatively With Other Medications?

    You should also inform your health care provider of any new medications you are taking and make sure that they do not interact negatively or lower the effectiveness of your birth control. Drugs that can negatively interact with Vyfemla and lead to possible side effects include aromatase inhibitors, such as anastrozole, or medications used to treat chronic hepatitis C, such as ombitasvir.

    You will also want to make sure that you are not taking any medication that can cause your birth control to be less effective. Drugs such as rifamycins, St. John's wort, seizure, and HIV medications can lower the levels of hormones in your body, counteracting their effect on preventing pregnancy.

  • Can You Buy Your Vyfemla From Nurx?

    Whether you have insurance or not, you can purchase your Vyfemla quickly and easily from Nurx. The process is simple. All you need to do is choose your birth control option and answer a few health-related questions. You will then be asked for your insurance information and pay your $15 consultation fee. Once a health care provider has reviewed your health profile and determined that Vyfemla is right for you, they will write you a prescription.

  • How Long Would It Take to Deliver This Drug If I Bought It Online?

    The typical process from order to shipment is between three and five days from the time that you select your prescription online until it is delivered discreetly to your door. If your health care provider contacts you with the additional requested information, a timely response will ensure that your prescription is delivered promptly.

  • Who Makes This Drug?

    Vyfemla is manufactured by Lupin Pharmaceuticals and is an effective combination birth control method used for preventing pregnancy and regulating the menstrual cycle.

  • Is There a Generic Version of Vyfemla?

    Vyfemal can also be purchased in a generic version as well. The generic name is norethindrone and Ethinyl estradiol tablets, and they are commonly available at any pharmacy and online health care providers such as Nurx. Both the brand name and generic versions are equally effective and carry the possibility of similar side effects.

  • How Effective Is Vyfemla?

    With perfect use, Vyfemla can be up to 99% effective. To ensure the best effectiveness, you will need to use Vyfemla at the same time each day.

  • What Happens if I Miss a Dose?

    If you happen to miss a dose, you will still be protected, but the effective rate will be lessened. You can take the missed dose as soon as you remember it and continue on your regimen. But if you miss more than one dose, you should continue to use a backup birth control method until you begin your next pack. If you are unsure about what to do when you miss a dose, you should contact your health care provider for instructions.

  • Can Vyfemla Affect Your Vision?

    There are rare cases where Vyfemla can affect your vision. It is advised that you keep regular eye appointments while taking Vyfemla and contact your health care provider if you experience any discomfort while wearing your contact or changes in your vision.
