Product Details

How to Use Kurvelo

Simply take one pill at the same time each day. Many women find that taking oral contraceptives prior to bedtime or with the largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other adverse reactions.

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 in order to achieve maximum contraceptive effectiveness.

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 Kurvelo cannot be used to prevent HIV infection or other sexually transmitted diseases. In order to prevent STDs, always use condoms when having sexual intercourse.

Kurvelo Dosage

Kurvelo birth control pills have two main active ingredients: Levonorgestrel 15 mg (progesterone) and Ethinyl Estradiol 30 mcg (estrogen).

Kurvelo Side Effects

While the risks associated with Kurvelo and other birth control pills are very low, some women experience side effects while taking them.

Minor adverse reactions include fluid retention, breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Positive side effects are also a possibility — reduced acne, lighter bleeds, and fewer mood swings are fairly common for combination oral contraceptive users.

More serious side effects include blood clots in the head causing double vision or stroke, blood clots in the chest causing severe shortness of breath, blood clots in the abdomen causing abdominal pain, or blood clots in the leg causing leg swelling and pain.

What is Kurvelo?

Kurvelo is a combined oral contraceptive pill (OCP) that prevents pregnancy by stopping the release of an egg (ovulation) and thickening the cervical mucus, which blocks sperm from entering the uterus. Kurvelo 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.

f you have high blood pressure/high cholesterol, 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, practitioners prescribing oral contraceptives recommend other birth control methods such as progestin-only pill (POPs), IUD with hormones (Mirena, Liletta, Kyleena, Skyla), implant (nexplanon), the birth control shot (depo-provera), or condoms and spermicide.

Frequently Asked Questions

Taking Kurvelo may increase your risk of developing allergies. The symptoms are usually mild (itching and/or dizziness). Severe reactions may entail shortness of breath and swollen lips, throat, or tongue. If this happens, call 911.
Depending on your medical history, hormonal birth control may not be for you. It’s important to discuss your medical history with a physician prior to starting birth control, especially if you have family history of serious health conditions such as cancer, heart disease, liver tumors, blood clots, diabetes, or high blood pressure.

Kurvelo is available at most pharmacies when you have a prescription from a doctor. If you’re hesitant to approach your doctor about Kurvelo or simply prefer the privacy and convenience, check out Pandia Health. Our team consists of expert doctors who have years of experience prescribing oral contraceptives. We accept most forms of private insurance.

Prior to starting any new form of birth control, you should inform your doctor of any medications you currently take (recreational drugs, over-the-counter products, or supplements) due to their potential to decrease oral contraceptive effectiveness.

If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Kurvelo is very affordable ($20 for a single pack or $45 for three packs). You can save money by choosing any other Kurvelo generics, such as Portia, Ayuna, Chateal, Altavera, Levora, Marlissa, Lillow. These have the SAME active ingredients and dosage as the name brand. Watch our video explaining generics vs. brand birth control pills.

No, Kurvelo birth control does not stop your periods. There are 28 tablets on each packet and you will have a bleed on the last 7 days of each pack (aka placebo week). If you want to skip your period you can use Kurvelo for it. Learn more about #PeriodsOptional and how to skip your period here.
