What is Tulana Birth Control Pills?

Tulana is a Progesterone Only Pill (POP) (oral contraceptive pill, OCP, birth control medication, birth control pills). It prevents pregnancy by thickening the cervical mucus which blocks the sperm from getting into the uterus and getting to the egg and by thinning the uterine lining (endometrium) such that if the egg/sperm hook up, there’s nowhere to stick and grow.

WHAT SHOULD I AVOID WHILE TAKING TULANA?
