Daysee is a combined oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills). Daysee prevents 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. Daysee is also prescribed to: treat acne, reduce the risk of ovarian cysts (as in polycystic ovarian syndrome [PCOS]), treat painful or heavy periods, and more. Read More
Daysee is very easy to use! Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Most women find that taking Daysee before bedtime or with your largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. It is recommended to take your first pill the first Sunday after your period begins.
After taking 84 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 7 with 10 mcg of Ethinyl Estradiol. 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 backup contraception for at least 7 days. Note that you may experience some bleeding or spotting if you miss three pills in a row.
Remember that Daysee and other hormone based birth control cannot be used to prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. In order to prevent STDs, always use condoms when having sexual intercourse.
Daysee birth control pills have two main active ingredients: Levonorgestrel 0.15 mg (progesterone) and Ethinyl Estradiol 30 mcg (estrogen).
The risks are very low, but some women have experienced side effects when taking Daysee.
Possible side effects include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Women who are breastfeeding should not take Daysee because it may decrease breast milk production.
Breakthrough bleeding may occur when first starting the Daysee.
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, such as blood clots in the head (a sudden severe headache, causing double vision, or stroke), blood clots in the chest causing severe shortness of breath, blood clots in the abdomen (causing abdominal pain), blood clots in the leg causing leg swelling and pain.
These may sound scary, but remember — they’re very rare.

As with any new prescription, you should go over anything you’re already taking with your doctor or Pandia Health Care Advisor before starting on Daysee. This includes recreational drugs, over-the-counter meds, and even herbal supplements. Even something that seems relatively harmless such as St. John’s wort can cause Daysee to be less effective at preventing pregnancy. There are certain meds you should absolutely bring up. These are aromatase inhibitors, cancer, HIV, seizure, and chronic hepatitis C medications.
You shouldn’t smoke anyway, but especially not if you take estrogen containing birth control pills like Daysee. Cigarette smoking increases the risk of serious side effects like blood clots, especially in women who are older than 35.
