Table of contents:

Seasonale (Ethinyl Estradiol/Levonorgestrel) is a prescription medication used for contraceptive purposes. It is an extended-cycle oral contraceptive that is taken for 84 days in a row, followed by a seven-day break. During the 84 days, a woman takes active hormone pills that contain ethinyl estradiol and levonorgestrel, and during the seven-day break, she takes inactive pills that do not contain any hormones.

The active hormone pills prevent pregnancy by inhibiting ovulation and thickening cervical mucus. It works by preventing ovulation, which is the release of an egg from the ovaries. Additionally, it causes changes to the lining of the uterus and cervix, making it more challenging for sperm to reach the uterus and a fertilized egg to attach.

Uses and Dosage

Seasonale comes in the form of a tablet to take by mouth as directed by your doctor, usually once daily. Pick a time of day that is easy for you to remember and take your pill at the same time each day. To ensure the medication's effectiveness, take the tablets in the order indicated on the pack and without skipping any doses.

To ensure efficacy and reduce the risk of unintended pregnancy, take Seasonale exactly as prescribed by your healthcare provider. Be sure to follow your doctor's instructions and take the pills at the same time each day. Failure to consistently take Seasonale as directed can increase the chances of becoming pregnant. If you miss a pill, be sure to contact your healthcare provider for further guidance.

Consistent use is essential for preventing pregnancy. If you experience vomiting or diarrhea after taking the medication, consider using a backup birth control method, such as condoms or spermicide.
