What is Lo-Zumandimine Birth Control Pills?

Lo-Zumandimine is a “low dose” combination oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills) that 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. Lo-Zumandimine 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

How to use Lo-Zumandimine

Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day.

Many women find that taking Lo-Zumandimine before bedtime or with your largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects.

After taking 24 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 4 days of inactive/placebo/sugar pills. These are inactive pills with no hormones that are there to keep you in the habit of taking your pill every day.

Lo-Zumandimine Dosage

Lo-Zumandimine uses a combination of two hormones estrogen (Ethinyl Estradiol, 20 mcg) and progestin (Drosperinone 3 mg) to make your body think it’s pregnant so a real pregnancy won’t happen.

Benefits of Lo-Zumandimine

Lo-Zumandimine Side Effects

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

Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. 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 severe new 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

WILL LO-ZUMANDIMINE CAUSE WEIGHT GAIN?

Very few women experience weight gain when taking Lo-Zumandimine. Lo-Zumandimine has a theoretical diuretic effect, meaning it helps shed water from the body.

ANY OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION ABOUT LO-ZUMANDIMINE?

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 Lo-Zumandimine. This includes recreational drugs, over-the-counter meds, and even herbal supplements. Even something as relatively harmless as St. John’s wort can cause Lo-Zumandimine to be less effective at preventing pregnancy. There are certain meds you should absolutely bring up. These are aromatase inhibitors, cancer medications, HIV drugs, seizure medicines, and those used for chronic hepatitis C.

WHAT PRECAUTIONS SHOULD I BE AWARE OF WITH LO-ZUMANDIMINE?

Pretty much every kind of prescription birth control comes with a tiny risk of allergies, including Zumandimine. The symptoms are usually mild and include rashes, itching, dizziness, trouble breathing, and swollen lips, throat, or tongue. 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 Zumandimine. This is especially the case if you’ve experienced troubles such as cancer, heart disease, blood clotting, diabetes, or high blood pressure.

HOW EASY IS IT TO GET LO-ZUMANDIMINE?

Lo-Zumandimine should be available at any pharmacy. It does require a prescription from a doctor, though. If you’re hesitant to approach your doctor about Lo-Zumandimine or simply crave the privacy, discretion, and ease of the internet, give Pandia Health a try. We have licensed doctors in every state we operate in. We also accept many forms of insurance here at Pandia Health. If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Lo-Zumandimine is quite affordable because it’s a generic brand. You can also save by choosing one of several other Lo-Zumandimine generics, such as Gianvi, Syeda, Ocella, Zarah, Drospirenone/ Ethinyl Estradiol. We offer many payment options to fit your needs.

DOES BIRTH CONTROL CAUSE INFERTILITY?

Some women worry that birth control pills like Lo-Zumandimine can cause long-term fertility issues. This isn’t true. If you want to have a baby soon, just stop the medication and you should return to full fertility within a cycle or two after stopping.
