Ortho Cyclen Generic (Femynor)
(Norgestimate and Ethinyl Estradiol tablets, 0.25 mg/0.035 mg)
This Ortho Cyclen Generic is a combination of female hormones (norgestimate and ethinyl estradiol) that prevent ovulation (the release of an egg from an ovary). This medication also causes changes in your cervical mucus and uterine lining, making it harder for sperm to reach the uterus and harder for a fertilized egg to attach to the uterus.
Taking an Ortho Cyclen Generic can increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, or heart attack. You are even more at risk if you have high blood pressure, diabetes, high cholesterol, or if you are overweight. Your risk of stroke or blood clot is highest during your first year of taking birth control pills. Your risk is also high when you restart birth control pills after not taking them for 4 weeks or longer.
Smoking can greatly increase your risk of blood clots, stroke, or heart attack. Your risk increases the older you are and the more you smoke. You should not take combination birth control pills if you smoke and are over 35 years old.
Do not use if you are pregnant. Stop taking this medicine and tell your doctor if you become pregnant, or if you miss two menstrual periods in a row. If you have recently had a baby, wait at least 4 weeks before taking birth control pills.
You should not take an Ortho Cyclen Generic if you have:
- untreated or uncontrolled high blood pressure
- heart disease (coronary artery disease, uncontrolled heart valve disorder, history of heart attack, stroke, or blood clot)
- chest pain
- unusual vaginal bleeding that has not been checked by a doctor
- problems with your eyes, kidneys or circulation caused by diabetes
- a history of hormone-related cancer such as breast or uterine cancer
- liver cancer
- a history of jaundice caused by pregnancy or birth control pills
- severe migraine headaches (with aura, numbness, weakness, or vision changes)
Tell your doctor if you have:
- heart disease, high blood pressure
- high cholesterol or triglycerides
- a history of depression
- gallbladder disease
- liver or kidney disease
- seizures or epilepsy
- a history of irregular menstrual cycles
- a history of fibrocystic breast disease, lumps, nodules, or an abnormal mammogram
The hormones in an Ortho Cyclen Generic can pass into breast milk and may harm a nursing baby. It may also slow breast milk production. Do not use if you are breast feeding a baby.
