Lessina® For women who are not planning on starting a family, hormonal birth control is a great choice. There are many different types available, Lessina® is one of them. Lessina® is classified as a combination pill because it contains two different hormones, a progestin and an estrogen. When taken as directed and at the same time each day, Lessina® is effective in preventing pregnancy. If multiple pills are missed, there may be a breach in coverage and it is possible for pregnancy to occur. The reason that birth control pills are effective in preventing pregnancy is that they work with the body’s hormones to make the body as inhabitable as possible for a fertilized egg. In many cases, ovulation will no longer occur which makes fertilization impossible since a sperm and an egg must join in order for pregnancy to occur. If ovulation does occur and an egg is released, Lessina® also causes other changes in the body that would make pregnancy unlikely. The uterine wall becomes thicker which would make implantation extremely difficult and the vaginal fluid becomes thicker which limits the ability of sperm to swim to an egg.

Lessina® Side Effects Like all prescription medication, there is always a chance that you will experience Lessina® side effects. Most side effects of Lessina® are similar to those of other combination birth control pills. Most women won’t experience side effects but if they do, some of the most popular include the following: vomiting, nausea, bloating, headache, tenderness in the breasts, fluid retention or swelling around the feet and ankles and spotting (bleeding) between periods. Names of Birth Control Pills While there are countless names of birth control pills on the market, it’s easiest to divide them in to two categories – combination birth control pills and progestin-only birth control. Some women are sensitive to estrogen and cannot take medication containing it. While Lessina® birth control and other combination pills are most effective, these women will need to take a progestin-only medication (often referred to as the “mini pill”) for pregnancy prevention.
