Product Details

How to Use Marlissa

Marlissa is super easy to use.

Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Marlissa 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.

Marlissa Dosage

Marlissa birth control pills have two main active ingredients: Norgestimate 0.25 mg (progesterone) and Ethinyl Estradiol 0.035 mg (estrogen).

Marlissa is a 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. This medication 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 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.

 

Frequently Asked Questions

Some women worry about weight gain when taking Marlissa 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.

As with any new prescription, you should go over anything you’re already taking with your Doctor before starting on Marlissa. This includes recreational drugs, over-the-counter meds, and even herbal supplements. Even something as relatively harmless as St. John’s wort can cause Marlissa 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.

Pretty much every kind of prescription birth control comes with a tiny risk of allergies, including Marlissa. The symptoms are usually mild and include rashes, itching, dizziness. If you experience trouble breathing or swollen lips, throat, or tongue, 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 Marlissa, especially if you’ve have health problems such as cancer, heart disease, blood clots, uncontrolled diabetes, or high blood pressure.

Marlissa 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 Marlissa or simply prefer the privacy, convenience, and ease of the internet, give Pandia Health a try. We have experienced, birth control passionate, licensed doctors in every state we operate in. We also accept almost all forms of major private insurance at Pandia Health.

No insurance? No problem. We offer many payment options to fit your needs.

If you choose to pay out-of-pocket, Levora is pretty affordable because it’s a generic brand. You can also save money by choosing one of several other Levora generics, such as Chateal, Levora, Altavera, Portia, Lillow, Kurvelo or Ayuna. Generics have the SAME active ingredients and dosage as the name brand. Watch our video explaining generics vs. brand birth control pills.

Some women worry that birth control pills like Marlissa 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.
