What are Levlen pills?
Levlen is a brand of birth control tablets owned by Bayer pharmaceuticals. The tablets are based on two active substances Levonorgestrel and Ethinyl Estradiol. These substances are also used in other combination birth control preparations and sold under other trade names. Usually, the less-known trade names come along with a lower price per pill. Therefore, if you want to save when you are appointed to buy Levlen to prevent pregnancy, you can instead purchase a generic version of the medication, i.e. the same drug made by another company.
The preparation is mostly used as an oral contraceptive, i.e. birth control in women of childbearing age but it can also be used to normalize the menstrual cycle in various disorders such as sporadic periods, short or meager periods, and painful periods.
The birth control effect rendered by the preparation is due to the mutually reinforcing mechanisms of two main ingredients, the most important of which include the suppression of ovulation and increased viscosity of the secretion of the cervix resulting in it becoming impenetrable for spermatozoa.
Women who use combined contraceptive medications usually develop more regular menstruations, less painful periods, less intensive periods. This contributes to the lowered risk of iron deficiency anemia, cancer of the endometrium, and ovarian cancer.
It is not advised to buy Generic Levlen and start using it without prior consulting your gynecologist and undergoing a comprehensive medical examination to exclude pregnancy and medical conditions in which the use of the pills can result in serious health damage.
