    How to Use Leena

    How to Use Leena

    Leena is super easy to use. Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Leena before bedtime or just after their evening meal helps reduce nausea and other side effects. After taking 21 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 7 inactive pills with no hormones that are there to keep you in the habit of taking your pill every day.

    Leena Dosage

    Leena Dosage

    Leena uses a blend of two hormones, Norethindrone (progesterone) and Ethinyl Estradiol (estrogen) in different doses along the 28 days tablet cycle: light yellow tablets, 9 white tablets, 5 more light yellow tablets, and then 7 peach tablets. Each light yellow tablet contains norethindrone, USP 0.5 mg and ethinyl estradiol, USP 0.035 mg, each white tablet contains norethindrone, USP 1 mg and ethinyl estradiol, USP 0.035 mg, and each peach tablet contains inert ingredients.

    Leena Side Effects

    Leena Side Effects

    The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Leena. 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 such as 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 Leena

    Leena is a triphasic combination oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills). It 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.

    Our CEO and Co-Founder, Dr. Sophia Yen generally does not recommend triphasics because life is better on monophasics. Watch our video on Triphasics vs. monophasics here. 

    If you have high blood pressure or take blood pressure medications, Lenna is NOT for you. Instead, Pandia Heath 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. Pandia Health’s doctors are always happy to help ayou choose the right birth control for you. 

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Every prescription comes with a tiny risk of allergies, including with Leena. The symptoms are usually mild and include: rashes, itching, dizziness. A severe allergic reaction would be: trouble breathing, and swollen lips, throat, or tongue. If this happens, call 911! Depending on your medical history, hormone-based birth control may not be for you. It’s important to discuss your medical history with your physician or one of our helpful Pandia Health Patient Care Advisors before you get started on Leena, especially if you’ve health problems such as cancer, heart disease, blood clots, uncontrolled diabetes, or high blood pressure.

    Leena should be available at just about any pharmacy in your area. It does require a prescription from a doctor, though. If you’re hesitant to approach your doctor about Leena or simply prefer the privacy, convaenience, and ease of the internet, give Pandia Health a try. We have licensed, birth control passionate doctors in every state we operate in. We also accept most forms of private insurance at Pandia Health.

    Leena 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. Leena 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.

    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 Leena. 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 Leena 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.

     

    If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Leena is pretty affordable since it is a generic brand, being $32 per pack. You can also choose other Leena’s generics such as Aranelle or  Tri-Norilyn for the same price or $0 with insurance. Generics have the SAME active ingredients and dosage as the name brand. Watch our video explaining generics vs. brand birth control pills.

    No, Leena birth control does not usually stop your periods. There are 28 tablets on each packet and you should have a withdrawal bleed at some point during the last 7 days of each pack (aka placebo/sugar pill week). If you want to skip your period you can try using Leena for that. But you might be more successful with a monophasic pill (learn about monophasic vs. triphasic here).
