    How to Use Mononessa

    How to Use Mononessa

    Mononessa it’s super easy to use.

    Simply take one pill every day, at the same time each day. Many women find that taking Mononessa 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. Pandia Health’s expert doctors recommend starting on days 3 to 5 of your period because you will most likely have less spotting on your 1st pack.

    Mononessa Dosage

    Mononessa Dosage

    Mononessa blends progesterone (Norgestimate 0.25mg]) and estrogen (Ethinyl Estradiol [0.035mg]).

    Mononessa Side Effects

    Mononessa Side Effects

    The risks are very low, but some women have experienced unwanted side effects when taking Mononessa. 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. Symptoms include heart disease, 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 Mononessa?

    Mononessa is a combination oral contraceptive pill (OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills). Mononessa 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. Mononessa 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, MonoLinyah 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. Pandia Health’s doctors are always happy to help you choose the right birth control for you.

    Frequently Asked Questions

    Some women may experience weight gain when taking Mononessa, Loestrin and other birth control pills. While there’s a chance that the hormones can give you the munchies, it’s mostly water retention (and not actual fat).

    Every prescription comes with a tiny risk of allergies, including with Mononessa. 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 Mononessa, especially if you’ve health problems such as cancer, heart disease, blood clots, uncontrolled diabetes, or high blood pressure.

     

    Mononessa 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 Mononessa or simply prefer the privacy, convenience, 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.

    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 Mononessa. 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 Mononessa 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, Mononessa is pretty affordable since it is a generic brand, being $21 the pack. You can save money as well by choosing any other Mononessa generics, such as Femynor, Previfem, Sprintec, Norgestimate Ethinyl Estradiol, Mili, MonoLinyah, Estarylla, Ortho-Cyclen. Generics have the SAME active ingredients and dosage as the name brand. Watch our video explaining generics vs. brand birth control pills.

    No, Mononessa birth control pills do 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 Mononessa for it. Learn more about #PeriodsOptional and how to skip your period here.
