    How to Use Amethia Lo

    How to Use Amethia Lo

    Amethia Lo it’s very easy to use.

    Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking this medication before bedtime or just after their largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. It is recommended to take your first active pill the first Sunday after your period begins.
    After taking 84 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 7 inactive pills. These are inactive pills with no hormones that are there to help you get in the habit of taking your pill every day.

    If you do miss one active pill , take two pills as soon as you remember. Then, continue to take one active pill for the rest of the pill pack. If you miss two active pills in a row take two pills per day for two days. However, if you miss three active pills in a row, do not take the missed pills.

    Instead you should use a back up birth control method for at least 7 days. Note that you may experience some bleeding or spotting if you miss three pills in a row.
    Remember that Amethia Lo cannot be used to prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. In order to prevent STDs, always use condoms when having sexual intercourse.

    Amethia Lo Dosage

    Amethia Lo Dosage

    Amethia Lo Side Effects

    Amethia Lo Side Effects

    The risks are very low, but some women have experienced side effects when taking Amethia Lo.

    Minor side effects include nausea, breast tenderness, headache, nausea, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Because Amethia Lo can also slow breast milk production, this medication is not recommended for people who are breastfeeding. Positive side effects are also a possibility, too — reduced acne, lighter bleeds, and fewer mood swings are fairly common.

    The chances of serious side effects are extremely unlikely, but some cases have been documented. Symptoms include heart disease, blood clotting, shortness of breath, migraines, vision problems, slurred speech, confusion, and fainting. Those who wear contacts or are nearsighted may notice vision problems as well.

    These may sound scary, but remember — they’re very rare.

    What is Amethia Lo?

    Amethia Lo is a “low dose” combined oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills) that contains an estrogen called ethinyl estradiol and a progestin called levonorgestrel.

    Amethia Lo works to prevent pregnancy by preventing the release of an egg (ovulation), and thickening the cervical mucus, blocking sperm from getting into the uterus and getting to the egg. Amethia Lo is also prescribed to treat acne, reduce the risk of ovarian cysts such as polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS), treat painful or heavy periods, and more.

    Dr. Yen, our CEO/Co-Founder and young adult medicine specialist, does NOT recommend “low dose” birth control pills for women under the age of 30. You need at least 30mcg of estrogen (ethinyl estradiol) to protect your bones. Instead of Amethia Lo, Dr. Yen suggests women under 30 years old consider the slightly stronger version of this medication e.g. Seasonique, Jolessa, Amethia.

    If you have high blood pressure, take blood pressure medications, or have severe migraine headaches: this medication, and other combination oral contraceptives are NOT for you as it may increase your risk of blood clot or stroke. Instead, Pandia Heath Medical group’s doctors recommend other birth control methods such as progestin-only pill (POPs), IUD with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), implant (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    There is no direct link between Amethia Lo and weight gain. Some women experience changes in their appetite that may lead to weight gain while taking Amethia Lo. Others may find that their bodies retain more fluid while taking Amethia Lo, even though they actually don’t gain any body fat.

    One of our Patient Care Advisors or licensed physicians will always review the medications and supplements you’re currently taking before prescribing Amethia Lo. Certain drugs (herbal, recreational, over-the-counter, or prescription) can interact with Amethia Lo and make it less effective at preventing pregnancy. Drugs that may interact with Amethia Lo include HIV drugs, anti-seizure drugs, antibiotics, and even herbal supplements like St. John’s wort.

    Women who have high blood pressure or take medications to control blood pressure should not take Amethia Lo. Our Pandia Health medical team recommends other birth control methods, including progestin-only pill (POPs), IUDs with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), copper IUDs, implants (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.

    If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Amethia Lo is a bit pricey since it is a brand name, being $70 per pack. You can also choose any other Amethia Lo generic equivalent such as Camrese Lo, Lojaimiess, Loseasonique for $52/ pack. Generics have the SAME active ingredients and dosage as the name brand. Watch our video explaining generics vs. brand birth control pills.

    You shouldn’t smoke to begin with, but especially not if you take estrogen containing birth control pills like Amethia Lo. Smoking increases the risk of serious side effects like blood clots, especially in women who are older than 35.

    Don’t take Amethia Lo if you’re allergic to any of its ingredients. Signs and symptoms of an allergic reaction to Amethia Lo are rare and usually very mild and may include itching, hives, or dizziness. Serious allergic reactions to Amethia Lo can occur in very rare cases. Stop taking Amethia Lo and call 911 immediately if you experience swelling in the lips, mouth, or tongue, or if you have a hard time breathing.

    Amethia Lo isn’t for everyone. Women with a history of certain medical conditions like heart disease, high blood pressure, breast cancer, kidney disease, liver cancer, or severe migraines should not take Amethia Lo. Our Pandia Health Care Advisors are standing by to help you figure out the best birth control method given your health history.

    It’s easy to get Amethia Lo at just about any pharmacy near you with a doctor’s prescription. Concerned about your privacy? Our doctor-founded, doctor-led team at Pandia Health is happy to help you get Amethia Lo or any other birth control you need, discreetly and conveniently.

    If you don’t have insurance, don’t worry! Pandia Health has a range of payment options.

    It’s not true that Amethia Lo causes infertility. If you’re taking Amethia Lo and want to have a baby, talk to your doctor and then stop taking the medication. Normal fertility should return within one or two menstrual cycles after your last pill. Dr. Yen explains more about birth control and infertility in this video. Watch to learn more!
