How to Use Lutera

Lutera birth control pill it’s super easy to use. Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Lutera before bedtime or with your largest meal of the day helps reduce nausea and other side effects. After taking 21 days of active pills, you’ll switch to 7 inactive pills with no hormones. These inactive/placebo pills are there to help you keep the habit of taking a pill every day.

If you want to #SkipPeriods, just skip the last week of pills. Didn’t you know #PeriodsOptional? Click here for more information about skipping your period.

Lutera Dosage

Lutera uses a blend of two hormones, Levonorgestrel 100 mcg (progesterone) and Ethinyl Estradiol 20 mcg [20 mcg].

Lutera Side Effects

The risks are very low, but some women have experienced side effects when taking Lutera. Minor ones include breast tenderness, headaches, nausea, and slightly elevated blood pressure or blood sugar levels. Positive side effects: 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.

What is Lutera

Lutera is a combined 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. Lutera 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.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Some women worry about weight gain when taking Lutera and other birth control pills. While it might give you the munchies, it’s mostly water retention (and not actual fat) that’s to blame.

Theoretically, it’s effective immediately (if you start on your period) vs. other times, you need to use backup for 7 days. To be absolutely safe we recommend backup or abstain for the first month. For more information, click here.

Yes, Lutera can help with acne by reducing circulating androgen (testosterone) levels.  Androgens promote sebum production, an oil made by your skin. Too much sebum can lead to clogged pores, which create breeding grounds for acne.

Lutera reduces sebum production and thus acne.

If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Lutera is quite affordable because it’s a generic brand. The price of the medication is $15  per pack (minimum 3 packs). You can also save by choosing one of several other Lutera generics, such as Orsythia, Aubra, Aviane or Larissia.

Yes, it is. Lutera uses a combination of two hormones, estrogen and progestin, to make your body think it’s pregnant so a real pregnancy won’t happen.
