Details

What do you mean by birth control?

Birth control, or contraception, is considered to stop unwanted and early pregnancy for women who do not want to conceive. Mainly, birth control techniques work in a number of different means. These include:

  • Keeping the ovaries (female reproductive organ) from releasing eggs that could be fertilized
  • Preventing the sperm from attaching to the eggs
  • Sterilization, which stops a woman from getting pregnant permanently

Mechanism of Action-

Dronis is a combination of Drospirenone and Ethinyl Estradiol. These are synthetic hormonal, oral contraceptive drugs, shown to act to prevent unwanted pregnancies. This drug prevents ovulation and results in producing changes in the uterus (womb) and cervical lining that inhibits sperm motility and fertilization.

How to take Dronis-

The first pill is to be taken on the first day of your period. An alternate birth control measure lie condoms or spermicide is to be kept in option for the initial days of using these pills. One pill is to be taken every day orally and make sure that you do not go more than 24 hours without a pill. The pill has to be taken at the same time every day. Start a new pack when the pills get over.

You may experience a breakthrough bleeding during the first 3 months of starting Dronis. You must contact your doctor if it turns heavy or gets persistent. You must stop their usage if you experience severe diarrhoea or vomiting and start employing a backup birth control method.

This is an efficient birth control pill. It is also prescribed for the treatment of moderate acne and premenstrual dysphoric disorder (symptoms include concentration troubles, depression, irritability, tender breasts, anxiety, lethargy, muscle or joint pain, changes in sleep patterns or appetite, and weight gain) among adult women.
