What is Falmina Birth Control Pills?

If you have high blood pressure or take blood pressure medications, this medication is NOT for you. Instead, Pandia Health Medical group’s doctors recommend progestin-only pill (POPs), IUD with hormone (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), implant (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.

How to Use Falmina

It’s super easy to use. Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Falmina before bedtime or just after their evening meal helps reduce nausea and other side effects. After taking 21 days of white active pills, you’ll switch to seven peach-colored ones. These are inactive pills with no hormones that are there to get you in the habit of taking your pill every day.

Falmina Dosage

Falmina uses a blend of two hormones, estrogen(Ethinyl Estradiol, 30 mcg), and progesterone (Levonorgestrel, 150 mcg) to prevent pregnancy.

Benefits of Falmina

Periods get lighter. If you are usually a 7-day person, it goes down to like 5 days. If you use 5 pads/tampons a day, it goes down to 3.

You can use it to make #PeriodsOptional. Just skip the last week of pills and go straight into the next pack. See our CEO/Founder’s talk at the bottom of this page

Falmina Side Effects

The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Falmina. Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, swollen feet or ankles, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Positive side effects are also a possibility, too — reduced acne, fewer mood swings, and other perks 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. The risk is about 3-6 women out of 10,000 per year using the medication might get a blood clot.

Frequently Asked Questions

DOES FALMINA CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN?

Falmina is unlikely to cause weight gain. Some women actually lose weight because Falmina birth control can have a mild diuretic effect, although any weight lost is typically retained water and not actually body fat.

ANY OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT FALMINA?

One of our Patient Care Advisors or licensed physicians will always review the medications and supplements you’re currently taking before prescribing Falmina. Certain drugs (recreational, over-the-counter, or prescription) can interact with Falmina and make it less effective at preventing pregnancy. Drugs that may interact with Falmina 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 Falmina. Our Pandia Health medical team recommends other options 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.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I BE AWARE OF WITH FALMINA?

If you have certain health conditions like chronic kidney disease, liver disease, or Addison’s disease, you shouldn’t use Falmina, or its equivalents.

Hormone-based birth control like Falmina might not be right for you depending on your medical history. If you have a history of cancer, heart disease, diabetes, high blood pressure, or other medical conditions, let one of our Patient Care Advisors know. We’ll help you select a good alternative.

You might be allergic to an ingredient in Falmina if you experience symptoms like dizziness, itchiness, or a skin rash. It’s extremely unlikely, but serious allergic reactions may occur. If you experience trouble breathing or swelling of the lips and tongue, call 911 immediately.

HOW EASY IS IT TO GET FALMINA?

It’s easy to get Falmina 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 connect you with a licensed physician who can help you get Falmina 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.

DOES FALMINA BIRTH CONTROL CAUSE INFERTILITY?

It’s not true that Falmina causes infertility. If you’re taking Falmina 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!
